A 10-minute 3D animation production for FirstEnergy Corp. served as a public relations tutorial on how electricity is generated from coal. The video included views from inside boilers and pulverizers that would have been impossible, or too dangerous to videotape. The video has been featured on YouTube since it’s release and has been discovered by elementary teachers throughout the country who use it to instruct elementary students on electricity.

EDP also produces fully interactive websites, DVDs and CD ROMs to extend the usefulness of the animations and videos we produce. We provide a consistent design and theme across all media to take full advantage of the many delivery options available. Visit the FirstEnergy interactive virtual tour.
