Industry Experience

As a small, focused and nimble studio we are able to deliver a wide range of projects, from small direct-to-client motion graphics animations, to complex fully featured 3d animated commercials. We have decades of industry leading experience within our team, and both our Creative Director and Producer have lead projects in international studios.  We can project manage the entire creative processes, or plug directly in at various stages of production, and we and tailor our style to suit both project needs and delivery times.

Academy Award

We collaborated with Passion Pictures Australia  in the making of the Oscar winning animated short film ‘The Lost Thing’.

Tom Bryant of Interference Pattern was a dedicated, key contributor to the success and production of THE LOST THING. Tom not only has technical expertise of the highest level, but also, so important for our film, is a true artist in his own right. It was this talent that enabled us to fully realise Shaun Tan’s designs and painterly world in the digital space.
