An international company specialized in turbine and construction project visualisation.

More than 20 ‘visual fanatics’ working on projects and development of software. For them, technology means: ‘unlimited opportunity in visual representation’.  A new name reflecting this was therefore chosen in 2016. The Imagineers. Imagination realised by technology. Maarten: “We rather don’t explain it. Experience it and you will know exactly what we mean.”

They have the ability to show ‘tomorrow’ today. From 2D or 3D visualizations to interactive journeys through a virtual world. Not distinguishable from reality. Except that it does not yet exist.

Here’s a link to their website.

responsabilitys and projects

In my work as Imagineer I was responsible for the video department as well for the greater part of the ICT and system resources as desktops, network associated storages, software and backup schedules.

The main part of the day for me consisted of video production, edit and motion graphics.
Small gaps where filled with tasks for longer term ICT issues, usually I would have to invest about half an hour a day to fix immediate question and hardware issues.

Some of the projects that have been publicly available I’ve written down for a insight into my work.

Hompage video The Imagineers

Project overview

An portfolio/experience video for “The Imagineers.com” homepage.

A project that initially started as a full fledged video production was rapidly scaled down to a more affordable and modulair interchangable variation.

Personal experiences

After preparation for a video and meetings with Rafaël from n8w8.nl and the founder Maarten from The Imagineers we decided to make a modulair video for promotional purposes and the companys identity on the main page of the new website.

Meetings, Video pre-production, Casting, was a big part of the indicative research we did towards a video.
After a couple of weeks we decided to go for a faster approach by editing the existing material and recording new material from recent projects. A few videos where shot on location to give a impression of our work enviroment.

The video is heavely graded so the weboverlay comunicates and the people in the video are more shapes then easely recognizable people.

The workflow for allot of the work needed to be documented so others could step in or start in a function within the editing proces, it also needed to be a selfexplanatory edit so content is easely replaced with new projects.

360° Video – HHWE WindEnergy Hamburg 2016

Project overview

An 360° experience video for various companys in the offshore wind turbine busines a.o. IHC IQIP, ECN, Ampelmann and SIF.

Personal experiences

I’ve put up a workflow for our 360° photographer to go out and record video with a new introduction if poositional audio. By means of plugins and a special microphone we were able to make a perfect 360° experience with both video and audio in full 360°.

The video itself are a collection of footage we where able to shoot on short notice, a storyline therefore is a bit unclear. The introduction shot is a outline of the entire project followed by a long climb up the tower of a turbine whilst intercut with short footage of construction halls and asembly cranes used in the process of building and placement of the turbines.

360° Video – Veilige Wieleromgeving Limburg

Project overview

An portfolio/experience video for “The Imagineers.com” homepage.

A project that initially started as a full fledged video production was rapidly scaled down to a more affordable and modulair interchangable variation.

Personal experiences

A Project for Heijmans and partners (BAM) as a pitch to be able to start construction on a save cycle enviroment for olympic/professional cyclists to train.

This park is multifunctional and can be used for sporting aswel as cultural events.
To communicate this without having to composite advanced 3d animated characters we decided to have regular flat footage evenly spread or directed in a certain direction to steer the audiance in a certain direction on the 360° canvas.

Interface Video – Windplanner.com

Project overview

An portfolio/experience video for “The Imagineers.com” homepage.

A project that initially started as a full fledged video production was rapidly scaled down to a more affordable and modulair interchangable variation.

Personal experiences

A unexpectedly complicated project, the main problem was/is that the interface is in constant development so to make a consistently recognizable interface in the video and have so called money shots was a tacticil affair.

In the end it did communicate the main functionality of the program and showed a somewhat recognizable interface.
