From Drawing Board to Desktop and Beyond

There's a lot to consider with 3D imaging and video in order to get the right results. Our team have vast experience and can guide you through all the stages. As a brief guide though, most projects tend to follow 3 key stages.

IDEAS, CONCEPT AND VISUALISATION

You give us your outline ideas and we take time to learn about your company, your market and your goals from the development. We can then start to visualise the best approach for production.

STORYBOARDING & SCRIPT

With a script approved (either provided by you or devised by us) we set about storyboarding the video for sign-off prior to starting full production. We discuss camera angles, panoramic backgrounds, element details – everything required to get that all-important cinematic effect.

PRODUCTION & EDITING

Once agreed, we produce movie-quality 3D images and video before tweaking camera / animation edits. The final stage of the process is the addition of a royalty-free soundtrack and/or voiceover, synched with the animation.

Augmented Reality

Never heard of Augmented Reality before? Believe us, you soon will. Augmented Reality uses trigger events to overlay images, text and video on everyday scenes. We're working on a number of AR projects right now and will showcase our work here soon. Even the humble business card can become something truly special.

Trigger Element

We establish a trigger element and embed it in software. When viewed through your phone or tablet, this image triggers the overlay sequence.

Extrapolation

The mobile device extrapolates the elements contained in the image, sending data above the real world scene.

User Experience

Information is overlaid onto the actual scene – extended data, video, text or interactive elements.




Videos showing Augmented Reality

A quick video showing practical uses for AR, presented by furniture giant, Ikea. Using triggers, Ikea furniture is placed in the buyer’s home, given them a better idea how it would look in real life.

Video presentation by National Geographic displaying the full potential for Augmented Reality to bring otherwise impossible scenarios, locations and people to life.

Our Service

3D production has come a long way in a very short time. Technologies previously the preserve of major Hollywood companies are now at our disposal. And let's not forget the potential of 3D printing - a technology that's about to revolutionise production as know it.

3D video

3D video gives true ‘other-worldly’ views otherwise impossible in traditional media.

3D imaging

Concepts are hard to explain with mere words. We can model your product prior to full production.

3D modelling

Need something printed in 3D? Give us the specs and we’ll model it for you, ready for printing in 3D.

Work

We've done a lot of this 3D lark however unfortunately, due to Non Disclosure Agreements, we're not allowed to show most of it. Just the nature of the job when you're dealing with sensitive information. Here's a small taster of what our designers and animators can produce.
