The Road Is Calling Video Storyboard
To coincide with the website design and build, we were tasked with creating a promotional video for first time website visitors and future advertising content. The Road Is Calling storyboard was designed to resonate with drivers of classic and modern supercars - Atmospheric, epic and poignant.
This storyboard takes you through the initial video shot list, music and sound design, locations and photographic shot styles, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Music & Sound Design
Classic and Electronic were the two genres proposed, each with a different take on the pace and connection with the video but both very fitting to the brief. Have a listen to the short 30-second clips here.
- Classical Genre
Classical music exudes quality and maturity whilst evoking an epic feel akin to an immersive driving experience.
Sound design & location recording
Using professional location recording techniques and purpose built vehicle mounts we can capture the authentic sounds of both vehicles. In addition, use of cinema sound effects heightens the viewing experience and contributes to increased brand value.
Here is an example:
Car featured: BMW M6 F13
Peak District Recording Locations
It was important to capture a dramatic background. We wanted emotion, excitement and the hills in provided height. The Peak District is a beautiful setting, here we detail some of the locations scouted for the production.
Property Recording Locations
Adding another dimension, we wanted to see the cars use the driveways of some lovely stately homes.
