With the average 9 to 5 now on hold, working from home is
the new norm.
As workers realise perching at the breakfast bar 8 hours a
day isn’t ideal, consumers are turning to online shopping for more posture
friendly solutions. A surge in DIY and spatial reconfiguring has seen unused and
unloved corners converted to our official home offices.
With the unpredicted surge of online shopping, some retail
sites maybe caught off guard by missing product images or dated lifestyle shots
that do not reflect the true personality of our nation’s homes.
As budgets are being reviewed, content marketing needs to
continue to maintain the conversation with your customers. Increased web time
is an opportunity to convert online browsing to purchases.
Our CGI quick turnaround service produces engaging
photorealistic images for email, social and website campaigns. Our team just
need basic product dimensions and a couple of reference images to get started.
As the unforeseen restrictions firmly stay in place, CGI
photography is a great imagery solution to the traditional go-to studio shoot.
The Set Visions CG team is fully up and running, working
remotely with minimal disruption to the production schedule. Our project
managers ensure clients are kept updated so they can have maximum input from
the safety of their homes.
We believe content marketing is key to maintaining a
relationship with your customers. To find out more info about our cost-effective
service contact the studio to arrange a call from our team.

A recent project completed for one of our long-standing
clients saw our Project Management team seamlessly coordinate the logistics of
our CGI team, Interior stylists, Models, Photographic studio team and post
production. The result is a set of 14
images that are perfect for brochure and social media content.
Our stylist worked directly with Fabric Box marketing team
to understand the design concepts behind their fabric designs and product
range. Together they designed the unique
environments with our team making sure the interior design trends, the CG architectural
detailing and propping supported their product; ensuring the focus is on the
contemporary blind designs.
The second phase of the project was to select and photograph
models in our in-house photographic studio. These were then edited together by
our post production specialists, resulting in ultra-real CGI images. Shooting models interacting with CGI props can
be a technical challenge. As our
production team strive for photoreal images they ensured the technique was
These images are perfect for marketing content, adding more
value to our client who can use the renders for brochure, online and social
media. Our clients have also ‘future
proofed’ their shots by using CGI our CG artists can revisit at any time easily
updating the images when the latest product ranges are released passing the
saving back to our clients.

marketing contact Set Visions or check out our CGI portfolio.

A recent technical
challenge was set to our CG department…Can we demonstrate the feasibility of
showcasing a frozen ice lolly product in a variety of images? Traditional
photography methods would have meant placing the frozen lolly in direct
lighting for extended periods leaving a frustratingly narrow window for
capturing the shot before the product had to be replaced.
The idea of using
Pix CGI meant our unparalleled photorealism would allow the client to show the
construction and quality of the product whilst keeping the image looking
refreshing and appetising. The ability to deconstruct and re construct
the product could simply not be done without the use of CGI.
After a delicious study of the behaviour of the ice
lolly…the surface, reflection, lighting reaction we recreate the materials in
layers, addressing each physical aspect of the reference based on direct
observation. We digitally sculpted the finished result with the lighting and
art direction integral to the feel of a shot, allowing us to create a striking
editorial image. The beauty of CGI is allowing us push and develop aesthetics
for a strong campaign.
