What do you get when you merge drone footage with 3D animation? A very cool rendering of a future Baltimore, that’s what.
Elevated Element started out using drones to photograph aerial views of city landmarks as they exist today. Now the Owings Mills outfit run by Terry and Belinda Kilby is showing how big plans for some of Baltimore’s planned developments would look from above when finished.
A recently posted video includes aerial imagery merged with 3D animation to show what developments in Baltimore might look like — developments including Port Covington, Tradepoint Atlantic in Sparrows Point and repairs at the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower.
Terry Kilby said the reel includes pitches that the company gave to clients, and so doesn’t necessarily represent the final plans. Developers, architects and others are interested in the technology’s ability to visualize the plans and data involved in the big projects, he said.
