Produce a video that will assist in the sales and marketing of Trafford House in Manchester. However….. this wasn’t any old office suite.
Trafford House, based in the Southmoor Industrial Estate, was one of many buildings that had been rejuvenated and given the once over by Jamie Goldspink at Picked Spider, cool name for a creative agency eh!
The design features of the building were just as ace!
This was an exciting and risky shoot as we wanted to use a small drone to dynamically illustrate the sense of space.
We filmed each room with the drone, moving around the pillars to slowly reveal the spaces with consideration of where the graphical elements were going to be added in post.
Filming indoors with a drone is always a little bit hair raising, howeve,r if done safely it can produce amazing results.
Once we started we couldn’t resist trying slightly more adventurous shots like flying up the staircase and also flying through the top level office door and over the railings.
After all the excitement with the drone we set about filming the spaces with our slider and also shooting as much of the Art Deco design features as possible. Jamie and Pickled Spider had worked hard on creating all the signage for Trafford House, so we really wanted to do his work justice.
As you can see from the finished edit, it’s a cool little piece that illustrates the space, light and USP’s of Trafford House in a stylish 2 minute Art Deco inspired mash up!
“From the moment you shake hands, you feel you've known Nic and Dean your whole life. A confident duo that takes their profession seriously and with relative ease. From the outset, they understood the brief and helped craft the footage in such a way that fully captured the essence of the building. I'm looking forward to working with them on the next project.”
