ALL3D was founded to provide the construction sector with dimensionally accurate, verifiable images and animations typically for planning and marketing — a service which still forms an important part of our business. In that sense we are different from many of our competitors who come from a TV or special effects background, where scale, accuracy and an ability to work alongside technical professions are not major requirements. As we developed our client base, it became clear that this core technical expertise was both powerful and capable of being universally applied to medical, engineering, FMCG and other sectors. We produce equal amounts of technical and marketing style images across our four main market sectors: medical device, architecture, FMCG and manufacturing.
We love producing great still images but nothing compares to the satisfaction of creating a story through motion, cinematography and lighting.
Whether it’s a building, device, product or character for planning, FDA approval, education or marketing, ALL3D will produce a creative, well-paced, engaging and beautiful video to clearly communicate your message.
Video & Photography
Alongside 3D animation, live film and photography have become a core pillar of our service offering.
Characteristically, we combine live footage and 3D objects, or titles are combined (composited) to create shots that would otherwise not be possible or affordable. This blending of the purely artificial with the real world produces exciting results that are greater than the sum of their parts.
We provide verifiable photography (including verifiable panoramic) to the construction sector and have an extensive portfolio of photomontage for both planning and marketing.
We also provide product photography (including macrophotography) for the medical, FMCG and manufacturing sectors.
Motion graphics are an integral part of our workflow, whether it’s animated titles embedded into our film and CGI work, or bespoke app or web graphics visible on phones or laptops in live shoots. Another popular application is animation of a client’s logo, producing a short clip that bookends future videos or presentations.
Speaking of presentations, do you have an important one coming up? Why not have us animate a bespoke 2D presentation, integrating your corporate branding to ensure you make the impression you want.
3D graphics alone produce beautiful, informative images and animations but combined with photography, film, illustration or web design, the true creative potential is realised — engaging your audience, communicating your message and adding production value. This process is known as compositing and it forms an important part of our workflow.
Storyboard / Script
Before any other decisions are made in the production of an animation or short film, we sit down with the client to work out a script and a storyboard, which form both the plan but also the contract for production of your finished work.
This is the most critical phase of a project as it is where the most scope for creativity exists. Typically we will host one or more workshops with interested parties where we gather information and expectations before taking that away and coming back with our proposals. We work with copywriters to sharpen and refine that initial proposal, producing a finished script suitable for both voiceover recording and titles.
Web / Mobile
ALL3D provides web design, search engine optimisation (SEO) and social media consultation as and when required. We can also provide animated mock-ups for use in film props (laptop, smartphone graphics, TV footage, projector graphics, etc). We have worked in a limited capacity on augmented reality apps for IOS which included user interface design, graphic design and bespoke coding for real-time 3D refraction in glass.
Design & Design Thinking
We work with clients at the early stage of projects identifying key challenges to create focused and effective design briefs and outcomes through Design Thinking methodology. We start with panels of director-level designers from different fields (typically we use product, industrial, graphic, game and furniture designers along with architects, illustrators, etc). We pair the creatives with key members of the client’s broader team and, over the course of one or more workshops, we direct and document a process whereby innovative ideas are generated.
