Urbân - A studio producing visual content to engage global audiences using film, visual effects, immersive media, and architectural visualisation. We have over 30 years of experience directing and producing 3000+ projects in over 40 countries.
Our USP is recreation storytelling, documenting our civilisation, and allowing audiences to travel to the past, the present and the future of our history and the environments and events that have shaped our lives.
We are experts at computer graphics (CGI) and film production, having started working in the computer graphics (CGI) industry in the early 1990s.
We love enhancing stories with compelling visual effects. However, Urbân specialises in big set-builds and locations, such as knocking up a future city, or time-lapse rewinding to reveal the past, recreating a natural disaster or battle, or graphic FX and metaverse characters.
To engage audiences, Urbân also likes to add an element of fun, wonder, surprise and danger. Therefore, we not only build environments and recreate historic events but we have also been known to destroy them as well.
As a filmmaker we work with all aspects of the creative process including; VFX, computer graphics (CGI), 2D compositing, motion graphics, and film production.
Urbân's directors have decades of architectural experience, having trained originally in the profession before being enticed into the creative image-making world of architectural visualisation - abbreviated to Archviz.
For more than 20 years the team has specialised in large-scale master planning projects, managing developers archviz requirements and deliverables. This has allowed us to work at the top level of the industry partnering with hundreds of clients including, monarchy, governments, blue-chip developers, and the worlds leading AEC companies.
We employ a wide range of architectural visualisation skills including computer graphics (CGI) and film production.
Urbân has produced thousands of visual effects and computer-generated shots for broadcast and film production. We know how expensive it is to develop and produce, often reserved for productions with large VFX budgets. However, smaller budget productions - TV, Corporate or Web, shouldn't be excluded from including the perfect shot to support your narrative.
That's why we developed our stock library - to allow producers access to CGI content that, if commissioned directly, will likely be unaffordable. At present, the library includes footage of Ancient Rome, Tudor London, Dubai and other cities.
