Flood barriers are essential products for areas that are prone to flooding from heavy rains or hurricanes. To get a hurricane rating, a flood barrier has several tests have to be passed including impact testing and wind-loading. This flood barrier testing was the subject for a business video we were recently hired to shoot and edit.
A lot of work goes into setting up the testing process. Setting up the test rig, adjusting speeds and points of impact and crunching the data to see if each test was successful. They even used an air cannon to launch 2x4s at the barrier!
A couple of the challenges from a video standpoint were creating various proprietary camera mounts and getting interesting camera angles. Using ladders for high-angle shots, and mounting cameras to the barrier and the air cannon made for some interesting shots!
It was an extremely interesting experience. Definitely a first for us, and we got some insight into the whole testing process. Having to create the camera mounts for the impact devices and getting unusual camera angles really flexed our creativity! You can see the finished video HERE
If you have a product you plan to test or demonstrate, we can create a video for you that you can use on the web or in a presentation. Here’s another example !
