When we get presented with a challenge to visualise an idea – rather than something well defined with architectural drawings and elevations, the process to the delivery is very different than normal.
Our clients have a vision in their mind of what it ultimately may look like and in order to achieve this vision, the best way forward is to spend a lot of time in the strategy phase of the overall process. Just like sharpening an axe before a whole lot of wood-chopping, we need to really understand what the primary objective of the package of images is going to look like before touching any 3D software.
In the project images below, we created a package for an incredibly inspiring idea that when people die, rather than being buried in a cemetery amongst others – they can actually choose to “become a tree” – our clients have developed a unique process of purifying the ashes and be used to nourish a selected tree in a parkland setting for the family to come and celebrate their life and continue their legacy. Check out the Mornington Green website in the comments below to see more about the project.
Our main challenge was how to choose from so many options of areas around the future parkland to ultimately communicate the vision of the project. And this is where the camera angle diagram workshop comes in.
It helped establish the first two cameras – hero aerial and one of the key features with groves of White Crepe Myrtle opposite Flowering Crab Apple trees – however, the final camera was ultimately fine-tuned once the model was completed with trees populated throughout the scene and we could adjust the camera live to suit the scenery.
So even though the images had a lot of freedom, the ultimate result was developed through a mix of standard processes and adjusting to the project on the fly – because some projects just need that flexibility!
“Thanks, Stan. Great result.
Looking forward to future stages and making the world a greener place with you.”
