Showcasing a Retrofit Success

Video production sustainable construction

At Content Creatures, we thrive on turning ideas into captivating visual stories. Our recent collaboration with Grosvenor Group was no exception. Tasked with creating four live-action films to promote Grosvenor’s remarkable retrofit programme, we embarked on a creative journey that blended authentic storytelling, with filming and motion design.

Grosvenor Group, a renowned property company, stands at the forefront of sustainable real estate. Their commitment to environmental leadership and net zero carbon goals is unwavering. When they approached us to showcase their impressive achievement of retrofitting 1 million square footage of space in London, we couldn’t wait to get involved.

Our video production process

After a discovery phase to learn all about the Grosvenor Group brand and vision, we moved into three stages of production.

  • Location Scouting: Mayfair and Belgravia—historic, iconic, and brimming with character. We scouted the perfect spots to capture the essence of Grosvenor’s work.
  • Production: Our crew worked tirelessly, capturing the soul of each location. Shooting took place mid-construction in a cold, wet January, but we made sure every shot counted.
  • Animation: We developed a graphic property from existing brand guidelines and in full consultation with Grosvenor Group’s brand team.
