We have worked with Stage One on a few different projects over the years and it was an honour to be called on again to produce a film that would display their skilled team’s abilities and celebrate the designers that entrust them with their ideas.
We used a mixture of aerial cinematography, slow-motion and green screen along with an emotive soundtrack and voiceover to tell their story

This film was a true collaboration of creative’s working together to produce an amazing story that really does celebrate the work that they do. We were initially presented a loose concept and storyboard that showed a day in the life of the company mixed with images of projects they had worked on . We worked closely with Stage One to push the concept forward in a more visually attractive way that would move and inspire audiences.
During production we experimented using a GO-PRO camera attached to the CNC drill. Ultimately this was replaced in favour of the aerial shot which was much more pleasing and in-keeping with the tone of the film.
Early pre-vis work was used to give us a clear visual goal for the gallery and how we would display work that was in various formats and quality.
