VAA Brand Re-launch

Virgin came to Vivid after the work they had seen us complete with Air Livery. They were impressed with the time-lapse style part of their company profile video. As part of a new livery launch for the Virgin brand they wanted to show the world their new look and airplane colouring.

15 days condensed into 4 minutes

Virgin wanted to showcase their new livery for their planes and having seen our work for Air Livery commissioned Vivid to produce a 3-minute Time-lapse video. It was important that we got the whole process and made it look interesting (not normally associated with paint) as this was going to kick off their whole global press launch.

We used multiple camera angles that resulted in over 70,000 frames and spliced with additional High Definition filming, meant that Vivid bought the 15-day process to life. It provided Virgin, with an extremely successful YouTube video and has gone on to have over a million views. It was also used as key component of their launch event for the ‘Mustang Sally’ livery and was shown on national news channels here and overseas in their other major markets.

Working for such a prestigious brand on such an important video commission was a major plus to Vivid and showed us that our previous clients still liked us. The only thing we did not like about the jobs was the heights we had to film from, but to be fair we got used to it.
