Last week, we featured the transformation of the derelict Carmelite Convent into the Chichester Free School. The team at Metropolis Visual did so many things right on this project. Not only did they create a stunning video highlighting the project, but they also created progress videos to allow the public to follow along with the progress.
According to Tomas Jurjonas, this was a very important piece of the overall video project because the building was such an iconic figure in the local community. There were many parties involved in the project, and it was important to keep everyone involved in the process updated as work progressed. The videos were shared in local media channels, schools, building companies, councils, and architect web pages.
STAGE 1: 1-3 Months
STAGE 2: 4-8 Months
STAGE 3: 9-15 Months
Stage 4: 16-18 Months
Additionally, Metropolis Video has used the videos to portray a comprehensive look at the project, and more importantly their video production work, on a portfolio page on their website in order to attract future clients.
We talk a lot about the importance of progress videos when it comes to long term construction projects. But keep in mind, it’s not just about capturing the footage and creating impressive videos, it’s about what you do with it. Keep stakeholders involved. Update the public. Showcase amazing construction work. Document history. Highlight your services and expertise to future clients.

Matthew C. Grammer recently shared a video he created for his client, Republic Property Group, a Texas based real estate developer which manages a few communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The company was working on Walsh, a budding development west of Fort Worth. Grammer was tasked with producing videos to showcase the initial stages of the community. As part of this, he captured the construction of two buildings: a marketplace and an activity center.
