Real Estate Video Production

The height of luxury. Our expertise in real estate video production and aerial videos made us the logical choice for this branded video production. 1000 South Michigan Avenue — 1000M — is a 74-story luxury residence on Chicago’s iconic Michigan Avenue. Designed by internationally renowned architect Helmut Jahn with interior design by Kara Mann, this high-design skyscraper called for a video as elevated as it is. Richter Studios rose to the challenge.



Flying high! Aerial video comes with special challenges. Our extensive experience filming with helicopters and drones in real estate video production helped us safely navigate the obstacles.

Because the allowed flight paths in this dense part of Chicago were restrictive for drones, we used a helicopter with front-mounted camera gimbal. Timing was critical: we chose our schedule to get the natural lighting we wanted at a time when popular Grant Park was free of large events. To ensure a seamless integration between the product animation and live action, we planned our flight paths in partnership with our 3D modeler to ensure the “completed” building could be smoothly inserted into our shots in post-production.

The shorter version: This 30-second spot captures the highlights of our longer real estate video production for 1000M.

They brought creativity, skill, and perseverance!

“It was a great project and Richter Studios did an amazing job. They brought creativity, skill, and perseverance! Everyone understood the vision and got on board."
