“What a way to celebrate your birthday!”

Germania is a leading German airline, flying to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East from it’s headquarters in Berlin. They were producing a bold new design for their 30th Anniversary. Germania wanted a video that was going to showcase this event for their ever expanding social media audience. Being time-lapse experts with one of our specialties lying in aircraft new livery videos, Germania approached Vivid to produce a video to mark this special occasion.

Production process

Filming took place at Air Livery’s East Midland airport facility and production lasted 7 days. It was a relatively complex livery scheme, with duel contrasting green colours spanning the fuselage. We fixed our banker camera that would capture the whole process. At Vivid, we like to delve into the finer detail. We then had around 6-7 cameras running to capture the more intricate jobs and to provide greater depth to the production process. This was backed up with High Definition filming of key areas, that could not be time-lapsed due to the short duration of the particular task. In the editing process we stitched all the stills together and spliced the video footage into the final edit.
