To learn more and improve results. However, none of the two is the main…
The main thing is to get excited, but what for?
To show you how we are able to tempt your client and generate more profit for your company.
This is important. Therefore, we are useful to you. Now we describe some aspects of the process.
In all our work we try to go one step further. Sometimes it is a question of technical advances. Other times they are actions related to the rhythm of the movie. The more confidence we get from the client, the more we give. This time, with the spirit of continuous R&D, we decided to develop an own project.
The client does not exist. That fact freed us to give the best of ourselves. We wanted to try visualization improvements in both indoor and outdoor.
We chose a project of A-cero architects, as you know, the firm led by the architects Joaquín Torres and Rafael Llamazares.
For various reasons that we will explain later, we chose a house already built in Marbella.
Its sculptural volume and the diversity of spaces were decisive for the choice.
Obviously, we did not have the technical information and even less in digital format.
As usual, we started searching on the internet.
We soon realized that this information was not going to be enough.
I cannot say anything else: I would have to have a gorgeous actress but the budget did not allow it.
That is the reason why you have to suffer my presence. And it is also the fact that gives cause for the tittle: ALONE.
As we show in the end, this work would have been impossible to do “alone”. The great work of the team, César Ramos and Pablo Rapún, has made it possible.
I am very proud of the team we are.
When you are trying to visualize a building so attractive volumetrically, everything is easier. For this reason, we try to “filming” it in many lighting situations: cloudy, rainy, with morning sun, sunset, night…
The scene were very heavy “polygonally” speaking. As we were adding more detail to the scene, we knew that we would suffer with the rendering times. We did not mind. We wanted it in that way, whatever the cost. A brushstroke: some HD 720 night images took more than 90 minutes to complete.
Different lighting situations provoke very different aspects of the image. We looked for the post production help us to match the “look” as a whole. Obviously, numerous effects such as lens flares, blurs of depth, motion, etc. But this has less secrets.
DURATION, MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS
The length of the video is out of the ordinary. In our productions we do not recommend such long durations. This was a special case. We needed that duration to show everything we wanted and at the intended rhythm. The choice of the music was not easy nor quick. If its rhythm was faster than the rhythm of the images, they did not fit well.
However, if we used a very repetitive and slow music, the movie was endless.
I think that with the choice of: “Waters in motion” by Sonic adventure Project, we got the background we wanted to round the production.
Minor sound effects of rolling the car at the beginning and the bird trills helped to give more credibility to the overall atmosphere.
It has been a visualization exercise very hard but it has been worth it. We have learnt a lot and I hope you have understood a concept:
We know how to tempt your client showing your project. Remember that.
