our process

After meeting with the Ahaus team, ruef started work on the automation video, developing a full script and shotlist for the new sales video. The ruef video production crew visited the Ahaus production floor in Richmond, Indiana, to capture on-location footage of Ahaus employees working on automation and workholding projects. As the automation video edit was starting to come together, ruef 3D artists began developing 3D animations for the automation video using CAD files provided by Ahaus. The ruef production team visited Ahaus again to capture additional footage for the workholding video, and more 3D animations were created specific to workholding. Throughout the entire process ruef and Ahaus met regularly to discuss updates, refine concepts, and review timelines.
