Flashmob time with Siemens Enterprise Communications!

We had a call from Siemens Enterprise Communications to go down to London and film their Flashmob that was linked to their #AmplifyTeams initiative.

Videos for Exhibitions – Aganto Ltd

Aganto had been wanting to complete a timelapse of the build process of one of their temporary buildings, but the weather and the build schedule never co-incided!  Welcome to Great Britain… Because they had plenty of decent photographs, we decided to create the building layer by layer in After Effects, and then use the photos…
