The website is soulpenthouse.com. Kind of a tour on steroids. The subject property is Aurora, the Penthouse at Soul (levels 70-73 of the Soul building) at the corner of Cavill Ave and The Esplanade in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, Queensland, AU. This penthouse is up for auction this coming March. If you are looking for a quaint little getaway in the Southern Hemisphere you might want to join the bidding on this property. Expect the opening bids to be well North of $50M USD. But it’s worth it! As Catherine Phillips from DBI Design says, “we’ve created the most amazing beach side living experience possible.”
I have to say that MaGrath, Brett and his PlatinumHD team have taken property marketing to a whole new level with:
- Six videos shot with a 6K Red Dragon with interviews done on the Canon C300.
- A slideshow of 49 Still images all lifted from frames of the Red Dragon videos.
- 360s are done with a spherical array of GoPros that create 360 video that can be downloaded and viewed with your Oculus Rift.
The videos and stills are stunning! Everything I’d expect from Brett’s team. I have a bit of a problem with the 360 VRs. I use the Chrome browser as suggested and have a 30Mbit/sec Internet connection, but the 360 video is jerky and painful to watch until the whole video is downloaded to the buffer (about 3 or 4 minutes)… just not worth it. Seems like a solution looking for a problem. I’d rather just watch the 6K Red Dragon video. Nice work Brett and team! Great presentation of this property.
