We at OV&P do a lot of video and photographic work for our corporate clients. This varies from promotional videos that showcase their business, its values and its products, to training and event videos and/or photographic galleries that support their marketing, team building and education programs, as well as online content such as infomercial videos and website images. Innovation is key for us, so we use the latest in aerial video and photographic unmanned drone platforms to provide amazing perspectives, combined with traditional tripod and handheld techniques. This provides our clients with a competitive advantage when utilising the content in their marketing strategy.
One of our latest projects for the Barrow Construction group involved doing exterior and interior shoots, by day and night, of their latest work of art. Katherine & West is an iconic, exclusive office and penthouse development in the heart of Sandton, Johannesburg – Africa’s financial hub. Above is a behind-the-scenes shot of the aerial drone about to take off, and here is the final video that we created for them:
As you can see, the building is in a prime location, opposite the Sandton Gautrain station and within walking distance of Sandton City, Nelson Mandela Square and at least seven leading hotels. The design is unmistakable in the cutting edge style so regularly associated with Barrow Properties, with flowing, curved, reflective surfaces providing for a world-class first impression of this landmark building. Complementing the exterior, the interior design is punctuated with stunning features such as the spiral staircase that commands centre stage in the ultra modern atrium. This provides for a welcoming atmosphere, including a classy coffee shop and beautifully appointed guest facilities.
We use high-tech drones with video and photographic platforms mounted on the latest 3 axis, vibration damping gimbals to capture smooth, sharp footage and stills. Having the top drone pilots in the country fly for us, gives our camera operator the freedom to create exceptional perspectives and compositions to include in our final product. This is further enhanced by utilising leading edge editing and post production technology that allows us to express our creative talent, whilst working with our clients to best fulfil their brief. In this way we can achieve the required levels of excellence to support our clients in sharing their message with their market, in order to help build their brand, enhance their exposure and positively impact their bottom line.
