We have a potential homebuilder client that is interested in 3D floorplans that we can incorporate into a 2-4 minute video. These are the kind of videos that are created in Autodesk 3D Max. Here is an example of a similar video. Do you know of a company that can help us create these type of floorplans.
You could probably find a freelancer that does Autodesk 3D Max at freelancer.com but of course you will have to get setup to take measurements of properties and send them to the freelancer. Don’t under estimate the amount of work that it’s going to take to do that kind of video even if you contract with a freelancer to do the Autodesk work.
To me the example video you sent is no where near as compelling as a Matterport tour. See this post on that technology:
While Matterport is appears expensive – $4500 + $100+ per month if you have a builder that is willing to contract with you to do a bunch of his new homes that could easily cover the initial investment of a Matterport camera and get you started as a Matterport provider. I think the Matterport tours would do the job you are talking about better for builder. I’ve heard several photographers in the Arizona say that there is a significant demand for Matterport tours in upper-end Arizona listings.
I think Matterport is a much better approach if you can contract with the builder for a fixed number of tours.
What do you think, what’s the best solution for David?
