2016 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival

Throughout the second week of March, the 2016 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival took over the city, as well as parts of regional Victoria, showcasing some of the world’s leading designers.

The Pod was very excited to once again work alongside the VAMFF management team, to produce a variety of screen content displayed throughout the festival. With more than 100 designers and brands participating in the festival, managing the screen content meant streamlining designs to conform with the overall VAMFF look and feel.
The Pod always enjoys being involved in VAMFF, with the opportunity to work on this internationally acclaimed event both a privilege and a pleasure.


Courage To Care Traveling Exhibition 2016

Contextualised by the devastating events and long lasting effects of the Holocaust, Courage to Care is an outreach program run by B’nai B’rith, the world’s oldest Jewish Service organisation. Drawing upon the many inspirational and courageous stories of rescue and survival from the Holocaust, the programs overarching focus is the advocacy and promotion of human rights and social justice.

In early 2015, The Pod, alongside Acumen Design, began working with the organisation to revamp its traveling exhibition, which had previously consisted solely of guest speakers and physical displays. The goal was to create a more contemporary exhibition, using digital technologies to communicate and preserve the heroic stories of numerous men and women who had the courage to stand up and make a difference in the face of overwhelming adversity.

The revamp involved the production of eight documentary-style, talking-head films about survivors of the Holocaust, as well as an interactive display allowing the audience to explore further elements of each story, plus a raft of others. Each film featured either a direct survivor of the Holocaust, or a descendant of a survivor. Shot against a green screen, these moving accounts of survival and heroism are accompanied by historical photographs of the locations and events that transpired.

This was an end-to-end production for The Pod and Acumen Design, with our team involved in the entire process of production; from principal research through to filming and post-production. We are extremely proud to have been a part of such an important, community-minded project.



Real Estate? Tractors? No problem. These two seemingly disparate entities have been The Pod’s obsession of late, working alongside both the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) and Kubota Australia.

With our inherent multimedia and audiovisual nous, we provided a wide array of content and communication solutions for them both, each a pillar of their industry.

Covering everything from concept design through to script writing and video production, The Pod worked closely with the team at R.E.I.V in developing both their annual professional development and networking conference, Connect, as well as their Awards For Excellence gala. The process involved extensive collaboration with event organisers from both R.E.I.V and Crown Palladium, ensuring stylistic fluidity and consistency throughout the conference and awards gala. The Pod was responsible for the keynote presentation design and production, stage management and the events’ branding, which included the design and print of the award certificates.

As for Kubota Australia, The Pod has developed a fantastic working relationship with the tractor giants, having produced each of their product launches and dealer conferences since 2007. This year was particularly exciting due to the release of Kubota’s first ever 130-170 horsepower machine (basically their biggest, most powerful tractor ever!). The project involved large-scale video production, featuring 3D animation and graphics, as well as presentation development. The Pod scripted and filmed a multitude of product videos, and were also responsible for the branding design of the entire conference, entitled A New Era.

With two major projects running simultaneously, The Pod was hive of activity throughout most of 2015 as we immersed ourselves in the demands of each. Both conferences were major successes, and The Pod looks forward to working alongside R.E.I.V and Kubota Australia again in the future.


Sir Henry Parkes: “Father Of Federation”

The Pod is pleased to announce the successful completion of The Henry Parkes Story exhibition in Parkes, New South Wales.

Installed within Moat House Cottage, a replica of Sir Henry Parkes’ cottage in Coventry, England, this 12-minute cinematic animation not only tells the story of Australia’s “Father Of Federation” Henry Parkes, but also explores a number of significant historical events, both local and global, that occurred parallel with his life.

An ultra widescreen, three-projection system combined with 5.1 surround sound creates a very unique and engaging experience for the viewer. The animations are completely derived from actual historical photographs, with the story transporting viewers all the way from the Battle of Waterloo to Charles Darwin’s infamous voyage to the Galapagos Islands.

Opening to the public this week, The Henry Parkes Story is a permanent installation, a fitting tribute to and celebration of the man, as well as the township named in his honour.
