Social media loves a good film or animation. So do those otherwise static or boring TV screens in offices and at company receptions. What about your public exhibition? Maybe you should add music and a voiceover to help get your message across.
▼ Animation visualising the interiors of H-Huset - This film was commisioned by Region Örebro län to show the public how the interior of the new hospital building will look. After flying-in to get an overview of the area, we go in through the main entrance, we see the reception and atrium, a waiting room, examination room, operating theatre, recovery room and the ambulance drop-off before flying-out again. The film was accompanied by a speaker and music. See the H-Huset breakdown here.
▼ Animation visualising the development of the USÖ - This was the first film requested by Region Örebro län to show the impact of the new H-Huset hospital building, and it's part in the overall development of the univerisity hospital. Most of the film shows a "model stylized" animation. It starts with an overview, some historical slides, then a drop down into the model, a flyover across the three main parts of the USÖ development, a breakdown of H-Huset and it finishes with a photo-real flyaway. The film again was accompanied by a speaker and music. See the H-Huset case study here.
▼ Strängnäs double tracks and the new travel centre - This animation was created to show the new double track line between Härad and Strängnäs, and the new station building connecting the platforms, bus and underground carpark. It was commissioned in 2014 by Trafikverket. The film starts with a fly-in showing Strängnäs' church, an informative sequence showing the major impacts and then a travellers perspective as they arrive by train. The film was to have a subtle stylized effect over it and was accompanied by a speaker and music score.
▼ Bokompakt smart student living - This film was created to promote the "smart living in 10m2" concept for Tengbom. We organised a class of actors to play out various scenarios; studying, playing Trivial Pursuit, working out and of course throwing a party! I clipped together the film, created the text message bubbles and overlaid sound effects. We created both a Swedish and English version of the film. It was interesting playing "director" being creative with the cuts. Read more about Bokompakt here
▼ Green screen photography promo - As visualisers you can never stop promoting or explaining processes to clients and architects. We required more photo cutout people for a project so we organised a photo shoot. I fixed sweets & snacks to ensure we got a good turnout (we did!) and decided to film the session and run it as a timelapse on Sweco's office screens. The first part is footage from the shoot, the second part are the photos from a "sitting eye-level" height.
▼ One day, 3 images challenge - Sometimes with only little time it's a challenge to see just how much you can get done! In this set of three images I had just a day. The architect provided an ArchiCAD model. I put this "timelapse" breakdown of the process together to run on screens at Tengbom to show the architects that visualisation doesn't have to be expensive and slow. Obviously there is a difference between a day and a week's work but if you need an image in a day...
▼ T-Mobile headquarters, Milton Keynes - This was the first animation flythrough I worked on entirely myself. I wanted to show the exterior first and then go through the interior offices. I finished off the movie with a night scene across a pool. I was satisfied considering it was from way back in 2011 and company hadn't done animations before.
