Once a month we step out from the comfort of our laptops and phones and link up for an afternoon of 'Lo-Fi Friday', celebrating creativity in all forms. It's a great way to encourage out of the ordinary thinking & generate some positive team feels (there's usually a few beer and vinos involved). This month we all hit @lildarlinbar for a cocktail making class (one of the better activities we've done, we'll admit). This salty-fresh illustration was part of the team invite and is the work of @uncle_uncel, the creative alter-ego of our own office all-rounder Sam Rowlands. Head to our Insta stories to see a bunch of shots and vids from the arvo. #GrumpySailor
Ready for a journey into the soul of Aussie music? The @AustralianMusicVault, at the @ArtsCentreMelbourne, is a shrine to our national soundtrack, an experience of the artists and riffs and objects and concerts and memories we love and cherish. Geez this was fun to be involved in. Explore more of the project on our website. #GrumpyWork
If you're looking for stories told differently (and let's be frank, that's all we do) check out 'Malaria', a short film combining elements & inspiration from origami, kirigami, time lapse, napkin illustration, comic book art and western cinema. A thoughtful way to spend 5 minutes, jump on our Facebook or LinkedIn profiles to check it out. Written/directed by Edson Oda.
Can you imagine a world with zero deaths or serious injuries on the road? That was the story the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), in Victoria, wanted us to tell when we linked up to help them craft their Road to Zero experience, at the Melbourne Museum. This exhibition, which will continue for the next ten years, launches today, and we couldn't be prouder of how it has shaped up. It has been, without a doubt, our largest and most ambitious project to date, as it's actually a combination of 13 different projects. From a 3D mapped car projection to a virtual reality car journey through time, to video storytelling and interactive displays and a glass elevator designed to demonstrate collisions at different speeds, this was a project that combined many different messages, tools & audiences. And underpinning all of the amazing creative & technology our own multi-skilled team worked on, we had to work closely with road engineers, behavioural scientists, teachers, students, educational experts and researchers. If you're in Melbourne, or you want to be, we warmly invite you to check out the exhibition and help us move the needle.
Every thread has a story. 'Looseleaf' was an experiment commissioned by the DC Lab back in 2015 to showcase the rich and ever-growing collections of the State Library of NSW. This online experience allowed users to weave through the staggering collection and explore the relationships and data behind the images, in order to discover new story threads. We loved creating this, even though we still waste big chunks of time engaging with our own creation. Just don't get stuck in the Twilight section.
Very excited to be at TePapa today. Incredible experience to see the Scale of War exhibition in the flesh, effecting is an understatement.
Stand tight pirates, sailors & aspiring digital producers; our own Claire Evans (currently on maternity leave, training the next crew of Grumpy Sailors) reckons there’s an AFTRS course that’s worth a look if you’re plotting a course for a digital producer gig. After all, our own co-Captains, Claire and James Boyce, met on board a similar expedition some years ago. Check it out by jumping on our Facebook and following the link.
