An exciting opportunity to demonstrate the scale, diversity and reach of Royal Mail Logistics literally by the numbers.
The film involved a Linney film crew shooting across the UK-wide mail network of rail, air, road and distribution centres to deliver a 2-minute film.
The film builds around a series of impressive business stats displayed as ‘3D sculptures’ including everything from people and technology to buildings and vehicle fleet.
The 3D tracking technique was created using After Effects with a plug-in called Element 3D, which allows any 3D objects to be brought into a sequence and viewed in real-time. Each shot using this effect needed to be tracked in order for the 3D text to remain in the correct place throughout. The track is done using the built-in After Effects 3D camera tracker, which analyses the footage and creates a 3D scene, this then allows 3D objects to be moved and positioned anywhere within the footage.
In this time of online shopping and 24-hour retail gratification, can traditional retail-based businesses compete?

Great Garage meeting last week, the highlights being:
Tracking: We've started a new multimedia project to show off our skills. We are using the Adobe After Effects camera tracker and some left over footage from a recent Linney video to create some mayhem. Here's what we've got so far:
Liquids: We've been messing about with our Phoenix FD plug-in for 3DS max. We can do liquids well now.
Our nice red for Christmas?
Other things we discussed were:
We are testing out a new 3D mouse.
We like goblins and Elves (Who doesn't?) We've been looking at the making of Azog from the Hobbit films:
The Bubble cam lets you record 360 degree footage and make conference calls in 360 degrees.
Everyone knows PayPal as the widely-used and trusted payment choice for online purchases, but if you've not tried using the PayPal app on your mobile, then it's a great time to do so. Linney Design has just help PayPal launch their new improved app. Think of it as a digital wallet and you're not far from what the future holds for us - your mobile replacing your wallet altogether.
The new app allows you to 'check in' to shops, restaurants and bars and pay by PayPal with only your phone on you. Very soon, you'll be paying this way everywhere, from shops to car parks to vending machines... Carrying cash and cards will be a distant memory, as will queuing and waiting to pay.
And if you want to transfer money to friends from your phone, then the app will help you do that too, as well as checking your balance and managing your accounts.
The launch of the app saw Linney design conceive the ad campaign for use across a range of online platforms. In all, over 100 individual ads were created and are being served now across hundreds of websites. So give it a go - simply download the app at the Apple and Android app stores.
Linney Design is delighted to be part of an award-winning mission to promote sustainably-sourced food.
Our client Compass Group UK & Ireland picked up the Fairtrade award for the second year running in last night's Menu Innovation and Development (MIDAS) Awards.
Linney created the brand and all marketing material for EatFair, a range of Fairtrade food and drinks served in Compass locations nationwide.
As well as the name, logo and visual identity, we produced an ad campaign, POS and website to promote EatFair products and boost awareness of Fairtrade among Compass clients, colleagues and customers.
