Mr. Fukata is a character in Irvin Gerber's dark tale of despair and depression. RAD created the animation from Mr. Gerber’s roughly drawn pencil illustrations to help market his book to publishers. We used Mr. Fukata as part of an email blast in January, 2010, to publicize or animation and editing skills.

My darkest hour started out as a black and white spoof on the film noir style created in the 1940s. Since it was created on a 3-dimensional plane, we decided to turn it into a full-blown 3-D production viewable with 3-D glasses. We boosted the size of our list, and then followed the promotion with personal delivery and a direct mail distribution of 3-D glasses.

Results: 27.3% opened the email and 31.3% of those clicked onto the video.

The email blast earned the highest response so far, probably because of the title.

Results: 39.1% opened the email, and 30% of those viewed the video.
