Monkeystack was commissioned to produce the animated pilot for Koala Man, a collaboration between Princess Pictures and Michael Cusack, with support from Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation.
The show is classified MA…so is our case study!
Monkeystack put together a team of exceptional animators to work on the project over several months to bring to life Koala Man – whose world is just like Batman, but much less rich and not as cool. We were so very proud to see the Koala Man premiere in November 2018 on ABC COMEDY as part of the Fresh Blood series. In late 2019, Koala Man was shortlisted for an AACTA Award for Best Online Video or Series.
Koala Man was developed into a series starring the likes of Hugh Jackman and Sarah Snook, released in 2023 on HULU in the US and Disney+ in Australia. Monkeystack came back on board to produce 3D animation, with Justin Wight (Monkeystack Co-Founder and Director) as one of the Producers.
