Have you driven by Chandler mall recently? Did you notice a few new buildings occupying a once vacant lot with a half-finished building? In fact, the development company, Hines, has recently completed its $160 million project of building class A office space, a luxurious hotel, and an upscale apartment complex on that 8,900 square foot lot. And guess what? We had the pleasure of working with the executives at Hines to create the main logo and grand opening videos! The new development is called Chandler Viridian, and we are excited to see everything come to life.
Who is Hines
Hines is a privately owned development company that works in 24 different countries around the world. Chandler Viridian was just one of many projects that they are working on. Their portfolio consists of $116.4 billion under management and is growing at a rapid pace.
Three different videos in only 2 weeks. There were many obstacles that we had to work around while filming these videos and shooting photos to make everything look perfect. One of the most difficult aspects of shooting this development was dealing with the construction still taking place on the buildings. Working around the construction workers and manipulating the shots to make it seem like the building was finished was not an easy task. We did a lot of touching up at the end, including removing equipment, fixing dead trees, and more.
Another challenge we faced was the limited amount of time we had. We only had 2 weeks to complete the entire production and only 2 days to shoot the entire 8,900 square foot land with all its features. The first day we shot was before the grand opening ceremony. We brought in various models to pose in “lifestyle” shots, giving the audience a taste of what it would feel like to live and work at Chandler Viridian. We even captured drone footage of the land to show a birds-eye view!
The next shoot was at the grand opening ceremony, showcasing all the executives and the first-ever Hines hot air balloon. This was a historic day for us and Hines, as we saw this development come to fruition.
With a short amount of time, multiple obstacles and a lot of hard work, everything came together! Click here to see the final video.
One of our owners, Eric Garcia, created the logo for Chandler Viridian. As pictured here, the logo is plastered on every sign all around the building, giving the new area a unique brand and contemporary feel. Having the elegant logo all over the development ties the hotel, the office, the apartment complex, and all of the restaurants together.
With the talent of our creative staff and the hard-working accounts team, we were able to produce a great video for the Chandler Viridian development.
