Our team are experienced in working with a wide range of construction related businesses from architects and surveyors through to developers and construction companies.
This sector largely use film for B2B purposes and have specific objectives such as showcasing a development or surveying a site for a project.
At Picture Book Films we take the time to understand exactly what your aim is for your project and decipher the best ways to showcase your site.
Using CGI graphics we bring pitches alive by demonstrating the evolution of a development, think Grand Designs! Using infographic animation we make your big numbers stand-out and impress, adding another level of impact to your content.
Our team document long complex builds employing methods such as timelapse cameras and piloting drones for aerial perspectives, showing the scale and context of the builds.
One of the most popular commercial use cases for drones is construction planning and management. Software developers have created solutions that analyze construction progress with regularly captured data. While ground surveying is still a critical part of construction planning and monitoring, the use of drone data has become increasingly important.
An effective way to tell the story of a development is through the personnel working on the project. By identifying the key roles within the project, these team-players demonstrate the levels of expertise involved and the complexities of each stage of a build.
One of our exisiting clients, the University of Brighton, approached us to help them create video content which would showcase the benefits of their proposed £300m Lewes Road development.
The university wanted video content that would talk to the local community, the wider city, key stakeholders in the project, and, most significantly, could be used as part of their planning application.
The Picture Book Films team worked closely with university and developers U+I to develop key themes for the video content, what story they wanted to tell and the most engaging way to tell it.
We then filmed on the various sites, used our drone to capture aerial shots that showed the scale of the project, and put together graphics to bring the project to life.
The university were delighted with the final films and used them extensively in their successful application process. You can view the film below.
