Working with Bellyfeel is always exciting and I don’t think this project would have worked so well without their expertise. They are a perceptive, thinking, challenging and talented group of people, open to new ideas and who have their finger on the pulse of digital developments. Work with them if you get the chance.
Bellyfeel really focus in on the magical elements of a Film or TV idea that make it compelling and they have a knack of translating that magic successfully across to new media platforms.
Bellyfeel is an exciting company to work with; flexible in their approach they implemented innovative solutions to meet the target audience. Bellyfeel’s input has been significant in helping our consortium of partners from UK, Italy and Austria achieve its goals.
We have worked with Krish at Bellyfeel for the duration of our career as professional musicians. We have maintained all our online business with them since 1999 – also creating videos, live Dvd’s and audience campaigns. They are the go to company for all things I Am Kloot; always professional, resourceful and have a great eye for future innovations. We are proud to have Bellyfeel as our on-going creative partners.
We had Bellyfeel consult to us over a 2 year period while we made two feature films. Using their Storyworld Development Techniques saved us time and stress – – and above all else, money. They helped us create a compelling storyworld which housed the two films and a bunch of great multiplatform content (cheaply) to promote the film and get an audience behind us.
Bellyfeel’s Transmedia consultancy allowed us to get an additional 20% on top of the production budget for the feature film “Of Time And The City” which was then used to create engaging Transmedia content that reached hundreds of thousands of people.
Bellyfeel demonstrated in their report to our production more than one way to help. Bellyfeel helped us in two ways: Firstly in defining TheRustyBucketKids.com Storyworld creatively. And secondly Krish wrote a report that argued the Multiplatform and Transmedia production case we wanted to present to funders for TheRustyBucketKids.com. The report was integrated into our business plan and that plan has helped us raise 50% of the $.5m budget we need in the last 21 days.
Bellyfeel gave me valuable advice to effectively use social media to promote my project and how to allow the audience to interact with my story. Krishna Stott and his team are passionate and they have a perfect understanding of what Transmedia is.
The free consultancy session I had with Krishna was excellent. I’ll admit. I was a little sceptical but I was so impressed with the amount of information provided. You genuinely cared about sharing what you’ve learned with me, guided me in the right direction and it didn’t turn into a sales call- which “free sessions” usually turn into. Thank you for the strategies and tactics you provided during our session. It definitely helped me get my project ready for taking to the next stage of development and funding. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who like me needs some guidance for a transmedia project.
The University have worked with Bellyfeel for three years in a number of collaborations and projects. One of our most recent projects was Onlocation, a transmedia, geo-location tool for students to be able to showcase their media stories in various ways. Bellyfeel’s expertise was invaluable in helping to deliver this innovative project which has proved to be an excellent resource for teaching, learning and research. Bellyfeel brought real world experience, knowledge and understanding to help shape this successful project that was delivered on time and on budget. Universities can be complex to work with, but Bellyfeel were a real pleasure to work with, quickly understanding our needs and delivering a result that exceeded our expectations. We look forward to continuing to work with Bellyfeel as their skills and ability to work with our staff and students at the University are second to none.
I appreciated your input on the project, and I thank you both very much. The storyworld development surgery really helped me with the challenges I am facing. Both you and Lee gave me food for thought. Since the project is still at the development stage, I have the space to improve and change some key issues such as narrowing down the use of the platforms. You pinpointed the strengths but also gave me strategies on how I could optimize the workflow. For a newbie like me, it was precious information. You also helped me put things into perspective – it is no use using an interactive video if it can’t run in all devices! In a short amount of time, you were able to provide valuable feedback using a straight to the core approach. Thank you for your suggestions. The timing couldn’t be better.
I have worked with Bellyfeel on a number of interactive and e-Learning projects. Krishna has an excellent eye for detail and certainly understands target audiences. He and his team at Bellyfeel simplify complex issues and always offer creative solutions for outstanding results.
Bellyfeel always deliver stuff on time, they’re easy to work with, there’s clear communication, (you can just pick up the phone and have a conversation without everything having to be formal through email) and they deliver high quality products and solutions.
The web app for the “SignMedia SMART” sign language glossary for media production was developed by Bellyfeel. They turned the partners’ ideas into a user-friendly web app that is also very visually-oriented for the deaf target group. Working with Bellyfeel has been a real pleasure; all the work was done more than expertly and promptly and the communication with them was very easy indeed. We are sincerely hoping to work on further projects with them in the future.
