Creative Direction & Consultancy

At Observatory our belief is that our creative video solutions should always enhance and make an impact to your project in as many ways possible. Our unique placement in creating high end content creation for emerging and immersive technologies we understand how to activate your audiences at the idea inception stage through to delivery.

As creative digital architects we can advise which content works best for the technology deployment you have in mind and for optimum audience reception.

Motion Graphics

Motion Graphics is one of our core services. Between the team we have over 25 years of experience in 2d and 3d motion design. We adapt our techniques to accommodate different types of branding and explore narratives from the storyboard through to motion boards and final animations.

We can execute standard motion graphics in traditional formats broadcast HD and regular 16:9 content delivery. We are also experienced in adapting content for more unusual multi screen setups and large format delivery.

Projection Mapping

We’ve delivered multiple projection mapping activations for The British Museum, Lexus, Intel and the BBC. We accommodate each part of the creative process, from building scanning to green screen shoots and animation. We thrive on mapping challenges of all scales from products to palaces.

We can consult on technology providers for equipment and we have activated live campaigns that use social media aggregation for viewer interaction.

VR / AR Production

Creatively pioneering solutions for the ever changing immersive experience landscape. Offering bespoke innovative creative and delivery options including workflow for Hololens and Oculus with certified Unity staff for production in house.

Projects to date have covered event planning, stage design presentation, experiential campaigns and commissioned VR & AR art installations.

Pre-visualisation

At Observatory we have in house expertise in 3D photogrammetry and 3d space pre-visualisation. We use this to help plan event spaces and experience projects before large amounts of equipment have been rented. We can apply VR to place the viewer inside the virtual event. As commercial drone licence holders we have the ability to survey larger sites, generate 3d site plans and help your team plan.
