The Challenge

The technical and scientific concepts covered in today’s legal cases may be difficult for judges and juries to grasp. How do you explain time division multiplexing, video compression, DNA constructs, or stock option trading in a way that is both engaging and understandable, while recognizing that members of the jury may be unfamiliar with science, or even basic math?

In our many years of experience, we have found that jurors learn more and are significantly more engaged when shown illustrations and animations than when listening to the spoken word alone. We live in a multimedia age, and while a strong oral argument is the foundation of any case, today’s jury expects more. Well-designed graphics and animations can bring your story to life and help make the impact you need.

Graphics Production

We have extensive and flexible graphics production capability – either working remotely with you from our office, or directly in your office or war room. Whether it’s organizational charts for business graphics, complex technical illustrations, or hundreds of demonstratives covering every element of a multi-patent litigation, Fulcrum’s creative staff can produce what you need, when you need it.

Computer Animation

When the concept or technology you need to explain involves a process, happens over time, or is something that cannot be photographed, animation can be an extremely effective format to support your argument. Fulcrum has created custom animations on hundreds of topics including semiconductor manufacturing, Internet security, cell phone communications, video technology, and medical devices, among others. From simple 2D animations to complex 3D simulations, Fulcrum handles all production responsibilities from conceptualization, scripting, and design to production, narration, titling and editing.

Video Production and Multimedia

Fulcrum offers a range of video and multimedia services including video production, still photography, narration, and editing services. Whether crawling under houses to photograph termite damage or shooting slick product photos for trade dress cases, Fulcrum photographers and videographers can handle even the toughest assignments. Once the footage or photos are shot, our editors can add computer graphics, titles, and voiceovers to create powerful and information-packed tutorials.

Trial Support

When show time comes, Fulcrum will be at your side. We can arrange for all the equipment and personnel for a successful hearing or trial. All graphics, exhibits, animations and video depositions can be integrated in a computer database to provide a seamless presentation, with everything instantly accessible in court. We also provide war room support, including digitizing, synchronizing, and editing video depositions, graphics and animation production, as well as coordination of foam boards, printing, and binding – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere in the country.
