Calling all manufacturers, engineers and construction companies! Why animation is crucial for your business…

If you work in any of the manufacturing, engineering or constructions sectors, you may already know how opportune video can be to your business. But within this, there's one type of video that is perfect for these sectors more than any other, and that is animation. The great thing about animation is that the possibilities are endless. You can pretty much do whatever you want and depending on what sector you are in, animation can assist in telling your story in various ways. We've put together this blog to demonstrate how an animated video can really benefit your company. Demonstrating a process The great thing about animation is that it can do things that a live video just wouldn't be able to do. 3D Animation is great for showing a technical process, or trying to showcase something in a particular way. Guides or 'how to's' are perfect examples of this. Say you want to demonstrate the creation of a product on an assembly line. It might be hard to show the process because it's too fast, hard to visualise or too technical. Animation will allow you to break down the process or object and simplify it so it's easier to understand. Using layers will also allow the viewer to see underneath or behind something to see a process that's enclosed or out of view. This helps to create something informative and more in-depth but made more simple to showcase or explain. Environments Animation allows you to create [...]

Our most influential filmmakers

We're constantly inspired by the big names in Hollywood making the stories we can only wish we could have told. As filmmakers ourselves, telling your stories are our biggest passion, and we felt as though it would be a great idea to look at some of the names that have the magic to inspire us. Some of them you've probably heard of, but hopefully there will be a couple of new recommendations here to inspire you as well. David Lynch The master of surrealism, you're in for a strange experience with a David Lynch film. His films are an acquired taste, such as Eraserhead and Mulholland Drive. He's also the man behind the popular cult TV show Twin Peaks, which provides more questions than it answers. We love Lynch however due to his commitment and integrity. He's someone who believes in telling a story how he wants to tell it, and has always been against big studio's running the filmmaking show. He has such a real passion for filmmaking and stands out as one of the most intriguing but influential filmmakers of today. Steven Spielberg If you haven't heard of Steven Spielberg, where have you been? He's one of the most prominent storytellers of today, creating the blockbuster with Jaws, and continuing the trend with Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark to name a couple more. What's so great about Spielberg is how diverse his stories are. He can go from making a fun family movie to a serious spy thriller. We have a range of different types of [...]

Meet our drone video client, Highgrove

Highgrove approached us with the task of making regular progression videos of their newest industrial development site using our drones. Every few weeks our pilot shot the landscape of the site, focussing on areas that has been developed further from the week before. The sheer size of the site allowed our drones to get as much footage as needed and more. Each video made included not just updates to the site but also fresh dynamic shots and movement of our drone of various different points of interest and areas of activity. Whether that be overhead shots of the farm area, or quickly paced tracking shots of the roadside and the site's stream. It's a fantastic opportunity to have a project to work on continuously such as this one. Giving us the experience to do something different with out drones on each shoot, and to keep working with a remarkable client like Highgrove over and over.

More and more company's are moving to use this app for their marketing, including us.
