Buildings don't move, but as cinematographers we want to see action passing through our frame. That's why when Architectus asked us to create a film for the Ainsworth Building at Macquarie Uni, we made it our mission to inject as much movement as we could without activating the space with people, by using classic cinematography.
Take a look:
Architecture Video Production
Outside the building we had a 2-person drone team capture the glossy exterior. Inside, we shot the space using a ride on dolly for smooth tracking shots, camera jib for raising and falling movement, wide angle zoom lenses to immerse the viewer within the space, and a cool move called the 'track and zoom', which was made famous by Alfred Hitchcock in the 1960's.
The film is edited as a montage, set to a track reminiscent of the famous score by Phillip Glass from the 1982 film Koyaanisqatsi.
That's a wrap!
We hope you enjoyed this film as much as we love architecture video production. If you have a project you'd like to discuss, give us a call on (02) 9188 0835 or send us email here.
