Social Media – The Pod goes viral!

The Pod have just recently produced for VicRoads a TVC to highlight their new ‘Premium Plate’ range for their advertising agency – Helsinki. Using a mixture of 3D modelling and animation, live action and motion graphics, the ad featured heavily in the company’s social media campaign, receiving more than 70,000 views on instagram and facebook.

We also produced for Helsinki, a series of 5-second youtube commercials for energy giant Lumo. The challenge of getting the message across in under 5 seconds was a new one for The Pod, but one we approached with great enthusiasm. These shorts consisted of animated household appliances extolling the virtues of Lumo as an energy provider.

Forged in Fire

Described by Channel 9 Australia as “…a no holds barred documentary exploring the legends, stories and characters behind the Ashes” and its history as a pillar of both English and Australian sport, Forged in Fire was a three part television series that aired during the 2017/18 Ashes series.

With each episode running for approximately 50 minutes, The Pod was responsible for the breadth of animation, titling, motion graphics and 3D design that featured right across the series.

The documentary was also judged best documentary feature at the recent Los Angeles Film Awards.

Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum…
the TripAdvisor verdict is in

As is the case with almost everything nowadays, social media has had its say on the newly revamped Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum, and we’re very excited (and slightly relieved!) to see it has been very well received indeed.

Numerous visitors have taken to TripAdvisor to post their reviews and comments, leaving us quite humbled at the overwhelmingly positive response.
Here are a few of our favourites:

“The sound and light show covers a lot of history. It is very spectacular and well worth seeing. We had been before but this is a completely new show. Our guide Andrew was excellent. Thankyou well done” – Maree E

“Definitely worth paying to see. We went to an evening show only – although next time would visit in the day too. The show was amazing, the effects used were fantastic- really had you believing you were in a storm, the water screen is awesome, I have never seen this before. The story was really well told and very captivating. The tour guides did a brilliant job of setting the scene and telling some great stories. I absolutely recommend this.” – Kelly D

Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum

As part of a consortium of creative teams including Acumen Design, Bluebottle and Generation-e, The Pod are putting the finishing touches on the $3 million upgrade of the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village in Warrnambool. This exciting revamp is sure to maintain Flagstaff Hill’s position as a premier tourist destination along the Shipwreck Coast.

Among the new site installations is an immersive 17 screen theatre designed to welcome visitors to the village. Featuring stunning cinematography of the Great Ocean Road and Warrnambool’s surrounds, the welcome theatre is a multi projection visual feast. The Pod also developed six multimedia activations that run in the village during the day, as well as a site-specific smart phone augmented reality game for kids.

And the pièce de résistance of the village is undoubtedly the spectacular sound and light experience The Pod developed to two remarkable stories of the area’s coastline. From shipwrecks to whale hunting, this stunning night time show takes visitors on a cinematic journey across some of Warrnambool’s fascinating maritime history.
