For our building flythrough video we arranged a recce to visit the site and get a sense of the building, making notes of any interesting features that would look good in the flythrough video and developing a solid storyboard and plan to execute a flythrough video that would have a real impact for the customer.
We allocated two days of filming to capture everything we needed to put together an exciting building flythrough video.
On the first day of filming we utilised two of our state-of-the-art steadicams with two different focal length lenses on the cameras. On one camera we had a wider angle lens allowing us to capture wider shots to show scale and establish areas. Our other camera had a zoom lens which allowed us to capture more detail and depth.
From this first day of filming we were able to put together a rough edit of the flythrough video, this helped us to identify if we needed any further shots of any areas in particular, which we could pick up on the second day of filming.
For the second day of filming we concentrated on the exterior drone footage, the building exterior had quite a lot of detail, which we needed to show.
Using our drone, we filmed the exteriors showing the scale and surrounding areas along with detailed features of the building.
The university has used this building flythrough video extensively across marketing campaigns, open days, business events and email marketing to really get the most out of it.
Tom, who worked on this project said:
We had exclusive early access to the building before it was officially opened to students, this meant we could take our time when filming to make sure we got the shots we needed. Overall I’m really pleased with how this video turned out and how we managed to capture the perfect building flythrough video for the university.
