Very, very nice indeed. The only thing throwing me off is that it is very dark and as such I'd expect a longer exposure and therefore streaky/blurry water. At the moment the water appears captured at a very short exposure time, which is great in some ways but I think blurry water might improve it. But I love the mood and lighting and particularly the composition. very nice work!

You sure know how to sell a space, Arkin! Just kidding - wonderful stuff. You've really captured a difficult mood here. My only crit would be the music - I don't think it fits the subject or the atmosphere. Maybe something darker and more classy might be more appropriate.

Would be great to see some more shots, particularly a few nice interiors with rain coming down the windows.

Great stuff :)

I think this is one of those very rare occasions when the renders look better than the photos! Very well done indeed. Love the lighting and texturing work too.

Thanks! That's a very fair point. We also had trouble with this side of things during production. The trouble was that we had so many shots to fit into a relatively short film. The other consideration was that this was not designed to be viewed online or on DVD/Blu-Ray etc. but only on an iPad (the Client's own iPad), and the idea was that they could simply pause it at any moment and take in the spaces. So slow moves were not necessary. I think as a "film" it could certainly benefit from being a bit slower. Cost was always a factor, too. Double frames = double cost! Thanks again. @jpintor

Thank you! Very much appreciated. I think we were (and are) lucky in that the architects are just very, very good. I love their style and their workflow and we've become good friends as well as business partners. I know what's in their head and they know how we work and how long things take, so it's a great relationship. I think one of the most important things was to set the scope of the project out very clearly from the start, so everyone's expectations were the same. There was a time during the project where a 3rd party influence tried to turn it into a Disney-style hollywood animation with sound effects and other gimmicky elements, but he got a swift talking-to and we resumed as planned. Was rather tense for a few weeks! Thanks again and we really appreciate the kind words. @AndreasRenderWeirer

Hi Samuel. Very pleased you like the piece! It was indeed a huge logistical task. Regarding DOF, we did think about it but the architects were very keen that this was more of an "explanitory" piece than something arty and "filmic", so they needed to see every detail across all frames, including objects right at the corners and in the distance, so DOF wasn't really an option. If you look very closely you can see that we did add some simple post-DOF to the very edges of the frame, but nothing too strong. We think this helped a little to give it a filmic "feel" without causing issues for the client to "take in" everything. I hope that answers your question! If you have any more, please fire away. Thanks again! @samuelconlogue

Thanks for your feedback! The water itself is rippling but only very subtly. The architects were very keen to make sure it looked serene and the water undisturbed, otherwise me might have exaggerated the effect a little more. Thanks again and very pleased you like the piece!@DrorBekerman
