Peak briefed us to create a CGI video for their booth at NRF in New York. From sketching out ideas on a note pad to the final rendered video, every frame was meticulously crafted to maximise both visual appeal and messaging.

Product

Visualisations

CGI (computer generated imagery) is the perfect way to visualise your product. We can produce highly accurate and photorealistic 3d renders of your product. Product renders are often preferred over traditional photography as you can make the product look perfect, show what’s inside the product with an exploded view and allows much more control.

What’s more we can integrate with real footage or even create a 3d studio to really make your product shine.

Wireframes

to entire worlds

It all starts with a wireframe. When producing any type of 3d project we create models, camera movements and animations without any textures or lighting. Think of it as the blueprint for your project. This way you get to see what your project will look like without any intensive rendering and changes can be easily made. Once the wireframes are finished, we move onto texturing, lighting and rendering and this is where everything comes to life. Have a play with the slider below to see a before and after!
