The use of technical graphics shortens the time required to communicate the essential features of a case. This reduces the cost of litigation and improves the odds of a favorable outcome. StudioCruz has provided graphics and animations for civil cases as well as forensic crime scene investigations; a recent client was the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office, for which the studio provided an animated reconstruction of the officer-related shootings of January 26, 2013. Examples of StudioCruz' cost effective work are shown above and below:
|This animation, built from DEM topological data and satellite imagery of a location near Los Banos, CA, was used in an eminent domain case successfully heard in Fresno. The case centered on former highest and best use of a property.||This simulation of a fire was produced for a mediation between the trucking company that owned the vehicle and the insurers of the aircraft involved..|
|From another eminent domain case for which StudioCruz provided extensive graphics and videography, an example of a video overlaid with descriptive graphics. Such videos allow a jury to gain a good idea of a site when no visit is possible.||
|From the same eminent domain case as top left, these precision images created by StudioCruz were used to argue detailed points in court.

These were developed for the technology company Potter Drilling. Two technical animations for Potter Drilling can be seen on the animation page of this site.|
Our animations and illustrations are designed for fast and accurate modification so they can evolve with litigation strategy.
|StudioCruz prepares illustrations and animations of human figures interacting with products and environments; this shows the operation of a bicycle gearing concept.||
|A simple animation showing the operation of a projected consumer product.||Photomontage shows how a location will appear after a structure is built, how it appeared before it was built, or how it will appear after it is removed. Click on the image to see interactive examples of this.|
|Another animation by Studio Cruz demonstrating the features and use of a valve concept to remove air from food storage bags.||StudioCruz

|StudioCruz' visualization skills were used for pre-trial planning in this model of Yolo County Court.||Click to left to download a six page white paper on electronic presentation technologies and strategy by Chris Yonge, Principal of StudioCruz. PDF file opens in new window.|
|Last but not least: StudioCruz is a flexible, efficient company with low overheads.||As a result our demonstratives are a fraction the cost of those from large graphics firms.|
