3D visualisation

Visions become visible, impressive virtual worlds are being created. 3D visualisation offers many possibilities far beyond conventional photography.

Consulting

Architectural visualisation

An authentic and realistic atmosphere, a proper light setting and materiality are often demonstrated in a comprehensive presentation. Architectural visualisation is an ideal compliment to samples of real equipment and therefore important to make visions more visible.

Consulting

CGI visual worlds

Via CGI, values, emotions and stories can be realized and therefore expressed in customized visual worlds of products.

Consulting

Animation / VFX

Stunning effects from abstraction to realism – 3D animation and simulation makes impressive communication possible and by means of images, brands can thereby stick to the client‘s mind.

Consulting

Marketing for real estate development

For project development one series of images is hardly sufficient. It is the complete product that is essential to successfully develope and commercialize projects. Unique and customized ideas result from close cooperation with marketing and advertising agencies.

Consulting

Storytelling

Suspense and content-related credibility are only two aspects of an entire storytelling. A successfull narrative structure needs an excellent concept and novel ideas.

3D consultating

Specifying objectives for CGI project requires expertise. From the concept and storytelling to an economically planned workflow – everything should run smoothly.

Consulting
