St Regis Temenos villas
Located on the island of Anguilla in the Caribbean.
screening the client chose us to prepare 3D
architectural renderings and a video production for this villa
development. This also involved a location shoot in video and stills.
Various techniques combining 3D and video were used to get this
production looking realistic and inspiring, the key ones being:
3D photo mapping
We used a series of aerial photographs to map onto the 3D mesh
of the site. This means we have incredibly realistic surfaces that
are built from actual real textures.
3D camera tracking
This technique tracks the exact motion of the aerial video and
allows us to match the footage in 3D. Then we overlay the 3D footage
with the real video footage to create a hybrid scene that looks
perfectly real. The villa scenes you see in
the animations are actually
3D, not real.
While on the island we shot various location scenes and features
to help polish the production. Voice overs were actually done in
The very final production was custom tuned back on Anguilla using
a mobile editing suite and presented on location at the opening
