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.
