Chaos? No problem. We maneuvered a 10-foot camera crane and a full film crew in a 500-person worksite without interfering with construction.
Lightning fast response time. We were ready to shoot on a day’s notice to accommodate unpredictable construction schedules. In many cases we only had one shot to capture what we needed.
Expert negotiators. We secured permission from aviation authorities to capture drone footage of Zurich’s corporate campus, just miles from O’Hare International airport.
Zurich is a Swiss insurance carrier with 55,000 global employees. Seeking to create a new gold standard for suburban workplace development, Zurich spared no expense on their North American headquarters.
The 11-story cantilevered building is built on a sprawling 40-acre campus and enjoys LEED Platinum Certification—the highest possible rating from the US Green Building Council.
