If you SEE DIFFERENTLY®, like we do…
Local agency and good friends at Third Floor design came to us with three words - Launch, Grow, Change. We played on the hand crafted approach Third Floor takes with their clients and created a rocket, butterfly and acorn which now sit proudly on their website and office walls.
We were approached by Gyro to create a CGI train to help re-launch the Heathrow Express brand. The brief called for a high-end feel, with dark lighting and photo-real rendering. We used a mixture of imagery to create the train from scratch and created some renders for print, and an animated train for online banners and terminals.
Shadowplay joined up with Philip E James. Using a selection of his stock photography, Shadowplay created this fantastic scene, to showcase their post production skills and Philip E James’ photography. This image comprises of many layers which come together.
We created these anatomical images in CGI for a large chiropractic clinic. They wanted to add a positive feeling to the images which would be on display in the large waiting area of the clinic, so we decided to add the colourful stripes and make them illustrative in style.
A piece of internal R&D here, in an effort to pull together our photographer, retoucher and CGI artist. An early start was needed to wait for a moment when traffic cleared, after dodging a few red buses the back plate was in the bag.
The founder of Shadowplay has taken on a new venture with the launch of his pioneering clothing brand. After a successful kickstarter campaign the factory line is well underway and the wheels are fully in motion. We look forward to seeing the growth of &sons, watch this space!
Indesit came to us requiring some imagery of their products which were yet to finish in production. Therefore we created CGI assets for them to use across their packaging. Here you can see an example of our CGI product creation in stages through to the final completed render.
We have worked extensively with Gyro London and Shell in the past. Following on from our landscape and automotive projects, we were commissioned to create these simple but fun visuals using computer mice, with photo real rendering and lighting to match the Shell brand.
We were approached by Havas Worldwide to create some imagery for an animatic to go into research for Birds Eye. This shoot was great fun, it was a large production over four days with lots of models, various locations and food stylists.
Another internal R&D project here created in advance of a pitch with Adidas HQ in New York. We are always keen to show off our CGI capabilities and this was another perfect opportunity.
Having worked with Rolls Royce on creating advertising photography, we created a series of ‘Dark’ concepts for future projects. This was our first render in the series and set the tone for the rest.
Whilst out in New York for various meetings and shoots we stumbled across these young lads playing basketball. We had a quick chat with them and they agreed to let us take some snaps whilst they continued to play in the New York sunshine.
