3D Drone Building

Ryerson is a leading processor and distributor of metals, with operations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and China.

For this video production, Ryerson wanted to show what their new Centralia, Washington facility would look like. Just outside Seattle and Portland, this 214,000 square foot facility will be state of the art with advanced metal processing capabilities.

Before the facility was even built, Ryerson wanted to promote their new metal manufacturing facility. Our concept was to fly the aerial drone and capture video footage of the vacant site and overlay the new building on top of the live action drone footage.

Using the CAD drawings and site plans, we were able to determine the best angles to film the empty lot with the drone. To achieve the desired final result of this video production, we had to find the right day to fly the drone. Wind speeds, lighting, and time of day were all factors for us to consider.

The aerial drone video footage was filmed in a flat picture profile so that we had maximum latitude in post production for color grading and correction. Video footage was captured at various angles and altitudes and with various movements.

Then, using the CAD drawings, we created the building in a 3D space. That building was then overlaid onto the moving aerial drone video footage. Everything was edited to music and exported in HD.

Ox Box // 3D Product Animation


3D product animation is becoming increasingly popular in the manufacturing space. We produced this 3D product animation video for Ox Box, a corrugated box/shipping and storage container manufacturing company in the Chicago suburbs.

The manufacturing company developed a new shipping kit product and wanted to market it with video on their website, social media and at trade shows. Instead of filming the container in a manufacturing facility or a warehouse, we opted to use 3D animation so the viewer could easily see the components of the kit and how it sets up and knocks down in seconds.

The first stage of our video production project was to develop a script. We analyzed current marketing language and developed a script that targeted the manufacturing company’s target audience. From there, we created a storyboard for each scene based on the product photos. We held a casting to select a voiceover, searched for the right music, and 3D animated all of the scenes.

Aerial Drone Video & 3D Building Overlay

Central Steel & Wire Company is building a new 900,000 SQ FT metal manufacturing facility in University Park, Illinois (Southern Suburb of Chicago). Before the building was built, they wanted to promote their new metal manufacturing facility. Our concept was to fly the aerial drone and capture video footage of the vacant site and overlay the new building on top of the live action drone footage.

Using the CAD drawings and site plans, we were able to determine the best angles to film the empty lot with the drone.

Central Steel and Wire Company is owned by Ryerson.
