Last year I was invovled in the creation of two videos for two architectural competition for Quick-it. Both were hospitals, both in France.
First time for me to work with 3D animated people, those were AXYZ design people with manually tweaked bip files. We also tried the wind option technique with Onyx trees and custom leaves. Those were pre-rendered footage that were placed into animation with AE. Thanks to Peter Guthrie for his hints while looking for the best method to use, and espacially for providing this tutorial just at the right moment! This can be improved but turned out good already!
Production time was approximately 1 week for the first video and 3 for the second.
