The overarching creative compliments the ‘pop-up book’ set designs and the Victoria era visual language from classic G&S theatre posters, highlighting the productions, events and venues included in the festival program as well as icons within the City of Adelaide, set to the instantly recognisable music from two of the leading G&S productions, Pirates of Penzance and H.M.S. Pinafore. We wanted the audience to see Adelaide through the eyes of Gilbert and Sullivan!

The TVC went live across VOD platforms, social media channels and on the digital screens in front of Her Majesty’s Theatre. The State Opera South Australia loved the commercials artwork so much that they requested a flat artwork version for printed 70cm x 20cm posters and stubby holders to be available to purchase as official merchandise.

Our 2D animations joined the documentary’s energetic mixture of live action, interviews and music, covering topics including social media, photoshopping, ‘fitspiration’, the influence of media and advertising on body image and role models. The animations illustrate and support the key message of the documentary in a light-hearted yet impactful style, designed for younger and older audiences to understand in a meaningful way – acknowledging shared experience or empathising a scenario whether directly or subconsciously.

‘Chico the Family Dog’, who is introduced and seen in live action scenes throughout the documentary, appears in animated form, experiencing extremely relatable emotions in a heartstring-tugging scenario that kids, teenagers, young adults and adults alike can all empathise with, and quite possibly relate to, encouraging open conversation and support through positivity. Embrace Kids celebrated its World Premiere at the 2022 Melbourne International Film Festival before being released in cinemas across Australia and New Zealand.

NUN HIT WONDER’s story was written by Peter Monaghan, and adapted for screen and directed by Jasper St Aubyn West and Anthony Frith. The narrated animation, formatted as a large-scale projection piece, ran at approximately 5 minutes with supporter logos and was accompanied by a psychedelic animated countdown screen. The entire project was developed and approved in consultation with those who held the rights to the Mead Estate.

Magic & Mayhem is an adventure quest game with a narrative focused on consent in relationships, demonstrated as the user chooses characters to take on their quest, with some displaying more enthusiastic responses than others, what outfit they should wear and to assign an item per character; from potions the character can use when needed to magical beans forced upon the character.

Players are faced with multiple choice options along their quest that define an end summary covering topics such as alcohol and drugs, enthusiastic consent and body language. The aim of Rize Above’s work is to assist young people to develop skills to have healthier more equal relationships, and to support caregivers and professionals to become allies with these goals.

You can play Magic & Mayhem in Rize Above’s Game Zone.

The animated narrative took audiences on a journey of service and sacrifice in war, conflict and peace-keeping missions of South Australians from the Boer War to today.

We produced the chronological narrative from 800 images of South Australians, past and present, who have contributed to Australia’s military commitments through extraordinary service and sacrifice, historical press clippings, letters and other service-related imagery from Virtual War Memorial Australia’s collection.

We are proud to have helped this magnificent project come to life with support from the SA Government with Project Partners Virtual War Memorial Australia, KWPX, Coopers and AJS Lighting Sound Events. Image courtesy of Pete Hall.

We will remember them.

 

We produced a series of animations and a range of online content to be used as key resources within an educational program structured of eight weekly modules. Each module provides tools and resources to help with resilience, anti-bullying and opening up conversation on emotions, designed to be delivered by teachers or on a student self-help basis, highlighting the message “Mental illness affects everyone… including children”.

Our design and creation of the cute ‘Peeps and Feels’ represent every child viewer – not defined by gender, race, shape or features, but by emotional characteristics. This approach to character design makes for an inclusive experience, no matter what classroom viewers are in. Concepts, characters and storylines were thought out strategically as we created a colourful and engaging collection of animated visual resources, each covering a topic highlighted within modules for children to connect with and learn from.

 

Our brief was to inform, excite and encourage overseas businesses to level-up and unlock the infinite opportunities available in the Australian digital games industry, find their team and access a vast range of benefits – all while championing the success of home grown games studios.

Working with our Player 2, the amazing team at IGEA (Interactive Games & Entertainment Association), we received over 400 submissions from studios across seven states & territories to represent Australia in the showcase. Our capability and understanding of games design and being active members of the games industry was just the XP needed. Achievement Unlocked: Australia.

Cohda Wireless is a world leader in the emerging field of innovative connected vehicle solutions and software, setting the benchmark for tomorrow’s transportation with proven applications. Even some of the best GPS systems face huge issues when travelling through the ‘urban canyon’ of cities. Tall buildings and tunnels disrupt signal and distort the determination of vehicle position, leading to false collision warnings issued and actual collision warnings not being detected.

The US Department of Transport estimates 94% of crashes involve human error. V2X-Locate’s breakthrough software has the potential to eliminate or mitigate up to 80% of non-impaired driving collisions using measurements between vehicles, satellites and equipped roadside infrastructure.

NSC support their candidates with advice, training and upskilling, linking job seekers directly to identified openings throughout the supply chain – where opportunities on water and home soil being as open and vast as the ocean itself.

Each of the 30-second videos feature a specific call to action in simple yet effective naval telegraph communication style text alongside nautical inspired graphics and radar designs – ensuring focus is captured, maintained and viewer’s minds are opened to a career in one of the most technologically advanced industries in the world alongside the space industry.

The Discovery Centre aims to inspire the next generation of the space workforce with stories of innovation, curiosity and technology, offering a place for the community to meet and explore the latest innovations in space technologies. This is where you can learn about Australia’s role in expanding national and international space activities.

We took inspiration from the infinite curiosity that space offers, taking you on a journey beyond Earth and back again. The charm of clean lines and the use of the Australian Space Discovery Centre’s signature bold colours goes hand in hand with the 80s video-game style, making us the real Space Invaders.
