Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum

The Pod, as a part of a consortium led by Acumen Design and including Bluebottle and Generation-e, are putting the finishing touches on a $3m upgrade of the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village in Warrnambool.The upgrade is designed to maintain Flagstaff Hill’s position as a premier tourist destination along the Shipwreck Coast.

The Pod created a 17 screen immersive theatre show to welcome guests to the village as well as six multimedia activations that run in the village during the day. A smart phone, site-specific interactive game for kids is also about to come online.

As well, two nighttime spectacular sound and light shows have been produced by the Pod and Bluebottle (who did the environmental lighting) which bring stories of the area’s maritime history dramatically to life. One show deals with the disastrous wreck of the ship Loch Ard, while the other features the coast’s whaling history, which has seen whales going from almost being hunted to extinction to the present day where whale watching is a major attraction along the coast.

The Bunbury Museum Heritage Centre

The landscape occupied by the township of Bunbury has a long and rich history. From the Noongar people who have inhabited the area for more than 40,000 years, through to the British colonialists who settled here in the 1800s, the area has played a significant role in the growth and development of both cultures that continues today.

Opening its doors for the for the first time in November 2016, The Bunbury Museum Heritage Centre was commissioned as a means of commemorating and celebrating these shared histories. Through a variety of installations ranging from projections, experiential displays and interactive touch screens, visitors can access first-hand accounts of the towns pioneers, learn about Bunbury’s numerous shipwrecks, the legacy of the towns street racing culture of the 1950s and 60s, as well as the deep connection between the Noongar people and the area’s precolonial history.

In terms of research and production, The Pod was responsible for collating and conceptualising a wide range of historical documents, photographs and video footage into engaging digital displays. This involved thematic design development and user experience design through to motion graphics, animation, video & photograph editing and interactive programming. The Pod also oversaw the installation process, ensuring our end-to-end involvement with the project.

REIV Celebrates 80 Years

Showcasing the very best of the property industry, the annual Real Estate Institute of Victoria Awards for Excellence are the landmark social event for all real estate professionals. Held at the Crown Palladium Ballroom on Thursday the 27th of October, more than twenty-five different award categories recognised the outstanding efforts of numerous agencies and individuals across Victoria. 

Working closely with REIV marketing personnel, The Pod conceptualised and produced a vast array of media for the event. Unique event branding, personalised award certificates, audiovisual content and displays, large-scale printed materials and more than 100 Keynote presentation slides, all produced and developed entirely by The Pod, ensured the event was a complete success. 

As a team, we particularly enjoyed the creative control afforded us in developing the evening’s mood setter, an inspirational short film illustrating the vital role the real estate industry plays in the lives of everyday people.

The Pod Challenged the Limits

Another year, another successful dealer conference for Kubota Tractor Australia. Following the release of their most powerful tractor range ever, the behemoth M7 series, in 2015, it was difficult to imagine just how this years event could surpass the sheer excitement and anticipation that was generated last time around. And yet, with a fantastic collaborative effort, it is safe to say that Kubota’s 2016 Challenge The Limits Dealer Conference, at the very least, matched its predecessor.

And whilst the new products undoubtedly speak for themselves, The Pod’s team of talented and creative directors, videographers, graphic designers, writers, photographers and staging crew worked tirelessly to ensure an unforgettable audiovisual experience.

The exhibition space of more than 4500 square metres was adorned with all manner of Kubota products and displays, a sea of orange for the dealers to explore between the raft of presentations. Totalling nearly five hours and more than 600 Keynote slides, each presentation was produced and designed entirely by The Pod.

Working alongside Kubota’s sales and marketing team, The Pod produced an array of ephemeral videos and motion graphics developed specifically for the event. These featured throughout the presentations, as well as across multiple screens stationed amidst the exhibition floor. Extensive script production, staging coordination and direction also meant the large-scale, dynamic sound and lights programme was simply spectacular.
