The Livingston Apartments

Where: Herne Bay, Auckland

When: October 2013

What: Livingston Group commissioned Buildmedia to develop a range of 3d still images plus an animation for the marketing of seven new high end apartments.

The central city location of the development was an important feature – as were motorway connections, proximity of the CBD and how the site was located between three distinctive suburbs.

The tranquil landscaped gardens and water features were an important aspect of the design that required special attention – petals were animated to float through the sky – bird and water sound effects were subtly incorporated.

Multiple site visits were required to photograph the exact time-lapse cloud effects that would work with the presentation – sequences were captured using a Canon 6D with a Radian camera head.

We worked closely alongside Livingston Group and Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects through out the process. The final product consisted of a number of interior and exterior animated shots that we carefully story-boarded into a 160 second long HD presentation.

18 high-resolution still images were also produced and incorporated into The Livingston’s website.
