New Holland Director, Ryan Maddox and a select team of artists and vfx crew were tasked with the ambitious creative brief of crafting a CG barren Australian landscape regenerating before our eyes into a luscious outback nirvana. From utilising bespoke grass and foliage tools, clever water simulations and seamless integration of matte paintings, the team showcased the breadth of design, 3D and 2D talent at New Holland Creative.
The main challenge, and, in the end, the film’s biggest success is finding an ingenious balance of 3D and 2D techniques to bring the Australian bushland to life.

Sydney design studio New Holland Creative have directed and produced a stunning flagship campaign trailer for the launch of RIOT Games ‘League of Legends – Wild Rift’ mobile game, in partnership with BBH Singapore.
The film – a dream-like journey unveiled in 180 degrees – takes the viewer through the mythical League of Legends backstory, as part of a global launch campaign for Riot’s next chapter of the blockbuster game.
The spectre of Viego transforms into a powerful, unliving wraith tortured by an obsessive longing for his centuries-dead queen. He now stands as the Ruined King, controlling the deadly Harrowings as he scours Runeterra for anything that might one day restore her, and destroying all in his path as the Black Mist pours endlessly from his cruel, broken heart. But hope remains in the form of the Sentinels, who battle against the dark.
The assembled creative team at New Holland covered all aspects in directing this collaboration with Riot Games and BBH Singapore, from initial concept art, storyboarding, edit, animation, Houdini FX, through to final compositing at 3K.
Westpac has launched its new brand campaign, created by DDB Sydney highlighting life’s eventful moments where all the surprise, excitement, vulnerability, and challenges can lie; in moments both big and small.
Directors Billie Pleffer, Stefen Hunt, Danny Cohen and Shelly Lauman all worked with Garth Davis to bring this stunning spot to life.
New Holland Creative collaborated with DDB, working along with the above directorial team to design two significant scenes. We had fun diving into the world of claymation to explore ways in telling the story through unique characters and set build. Another scene required a live action character be transformed in to a 2d aesthetic. Our 2d character designers developed this distinctive look to coincide with the launch of Westpac’s new Digi-card app.
Opening title sequence for viral film for Panasonic Lumix brand.
Working closely with the design team at Sedona productions, and under the direction of Paul Mitchell we were commissioned to create this futuristic piece for Swinburne University.
Within this collaboration, New Holland modelled up the architectural elements in 3D to be used in the pre-visualisation of the commercial. Paul could then direct where and how the holographic imagery appeared in each room in the virtual university. We then brought to life the film through the use of animation, particle fx systems using houdini and final compositing.
In a fantastic opportunity for New Holland Creative, founder & creative director Brendan Savage was awarded the assignment of directing the global visual campaign for Sony BRAVIA televisions releasing in 2020.
Based on the agencies “Sensorial Gateway” concept, we crafted our visuals around elements of the natural world. Motifs like haunting ice caves and spellbinding ravines capture a sense of scale and highlight the elements of immersion, subtleties, and depth so essential to the BRAVIA’s performance. Premiering at CES 2020 and created entirely in 3D in a collaboration with the wizards at Alt vfx, we designed environments and set pieces that bring all those elements together in an international promotion film. Our team confronted the challenge of creating powerful moments of natural beauty capable of wowing people at first glance which merge with captivating Sound-from-Picture Reality.
“Evenflow” takes the viewer on a journey starting with the wonder of a glacial landscape, leading down into the magical surrounds of an ice cave. Astonishingly, these breathtaking scenes appear to take place within a single grain of sand. Further exploration reveals the awe inspiring landscape of a sandstone ravine. The sun sets on a myriad of colours seen in the layers of sandstone, as the film finishes perfectly to highlight the clarity and contrast as we look up in to the Milky Way sky.
La Brea is an American drama television series that premiered on NBC in 2021. The series, produced by Keshet Studios and Universal Television, is created and executive produced by David Appelbaum.

The survivors find themselves trapped in a mysterious and dangerous primeval land where they must band together to survive.
Our New Holland pitch was successful to design and animate the distinctive show title, that gives a visual nod to the parallel dimensions written throughout the narrative of the season.
The campaign highlights how two simple letters – .au – can open up a new world of possibilities through the delivery of shorter, simpler and uniquely Australian online addresses.
By asking the question, “What will .au change for you?” the campaign encourages Australians to consider the opportunities and benefits delivered by the new namespace.
.au direct will allow Internet users to register domain names directly before the .au for the first time. The campaign aims to raise broad awareness of its introduction through television, radio, outdoor and digital advertisements
New Holland was commissioned to bring the stills photography to life using the photogrammetry animation technique.
Agency Alkemy X tapped us to help them with Hulu’s annual celebration of all things spooky, Huluween. Haunting the Huluverse with a ghost returning from the Golden Age of Hollywood: Uluh, a Hollywood actress who has returned from the grave to claim the success that escaped her during her living days.
Director Rupert Cresswell created the original character and backstory for the ghost that would inhabit the streaming platform during October, as well as a comprehensive package of digital assets to be leveraged across the streaming platform and its social media channels. Our task was to design the look and animate the ghostly cloth simulations enveloping the omnipresent haunting spirit, along with final compositing.
The final package produced a suite of assets includes idents, GIFs, teasers and still graphics used throughout the platform and extending to outside digital channels.
The Hitman franchise is massive in the gaming world. To announce the upcoming launch of the video game Hitman 2, we collaborated with the cinematic wizards at Plastic Wax to create this trailer. Premiered at E3 2018, New Holland was commissioned to design and animate all the motion graphics sequences seen throughout the film.
The trailer reflects the events that can happen in the 2nd mission of the game. The mission takes place at a motor racing event where agent 47 is given his new assignment. The motion graphics are used to deepen the explanation of the possible scenarios that lead up to what at first glance looks like a tragic accident.
A big team effort that Warner Bros. Games and IO Interactive loved.
Brands are adjusting the way they communicate with younger audiences to be in line with culture and the way the internet shapes interactions and perceptions.
Analog Folk collaborated with New Holland Creative and our technology partners T&DA to design and build Rekorder-Land.
The brief was to create an experience like never before for Swedens premium cider. Designed to connect with the audience in a fun and unexpected way, whilst using the mobile and social mechanics that they’re used to. Being an online and mobile experience, this didn’t mean the experience won’t be premium – far from it.
New Hollands team of concept artists, designers and animators created striking visuals to invite the viewer to explore Rekorder-Land through a series of portals, where they not only watch the amazing visuals, but interact within the experience. Artificial Intelligence technology was developed by T&DA to add an extra layer of sensory involvement and interaction as the viewer navigates Rekorder-Land in real-time.
Together, we created a one of a kind online adventure where games are played, new environments explored and souvenirs taken home.
To promote the Samsung Q series soundbar working in unison with Samsungs television range, Che Proximity reached out to New Holland to create a sound driven visual to use across traditional and social media.

Project 007 (working title) is a brand new James Bond video game to be developed and published by IO interactive.
Featuring a wholly original Bond story, players will step in to the shoes of the world’s favourite secret agent in the very first James Bond origin story.
We have a great working relationship with the elite creative production company Plastic Wax. IOI had developed the idea showcasing a bullet being loaded into a chamber of a gun – could it be Bond’s trademark Walther PPK? – Monty Norman’s iconic Bond theme slowly builds up and eventually soars as we see another Bond mainstay : the gun barrel sequence. Then, a shot is fired and the screen turns red, leaving “Project 007” at its centre.
When Plastic reached out for us to play a part in their team to create this teaser trailer for this unique gaming title, we jumped at the opportunity to earn our 00 status!
We collaborated with agency Che Proximity to design a motion graphics package for 7Elevens relaunched media and social campaign for 2021.
We aimed to explore the potential of the recognisable 7 Eleven brand elements and bring them to life in a cohesive animation style that would compliment their new and improved offering of in store food and beverage.
Teaming up with We Are Social, T&DA we were commissioned to add some energy in to ZipPays latest campaign anthem.
Our team designed a variety of stylistic typography and motion graphics to bring out the unique personality of each of the celebrity characters.
Starting with extracting the style from the existing brand guidelines, we decided to push the design elements in to a new paradigm for the brand. To help bring out the stories, we spent time developing different styles based on each person in the cast and the overarching narrative of “yes you can zip it!”
Ausfilm reached out to new holland to evolve their corporate branding with a new, animated ident for use in international markets and across all promotional collateral.

Ogilvy Bangkok sought out New Holland Creative to create a series of commercials aimed specifically at the social market for Coca Cola.
Our visual artists used houdini to create the fx animation of the thousands of emojis seen in the bubbles of coke fizz. Bespoke animation was added and combined with stunning rendering techniques to create these fun little vignettes.
What if we could show parents that relaxing the rules is okay by allowing them to have a laugh at all the crazy things that happen when you’re raising a family?
Ogilvy commissioned New Holland Creative’s very talented Hui Ying Kao and their technology partner T&DA to illustrate and bring to life the many amusing life situations during the covid lockdown in a series of cheeky and quirky animations for The Natural Confectionary Company. The illustrations embody the essence of raw storytelling, being imperfect, sketch-like pictures that almost seem like they could’ve been jotted down by a kid themselves. They are simple and a little bit messy. Purposeful messy, though, with a consistent style that mimics the organic hand-drawn like illustrations we see on TNCC packs.
After being in lockdown for many weeks there’s bound to be some wild stories out there, plus with kids going back to school, there’s sure to be more stories to come. These are then shared with influencers that then upload their story to their blog and socials with the hashtag: #StorybookOfReal to encourage other Aussie parents out there to embrace the changes they’re going through and maybe even have a laugh at them.
For a number of years Vittoria has successfully produced Nespresso compatible capsules.
A new look has been created to showcase the 14 exciting blends as part of the release of a range of brilliant colours of Vittoria Coffee capsules. New Holland was sought out by Loyal agency to collaborate on this visually exciting campaign. Designed specifically to focus on the foiled pods and the brilliant range of blends available, a kaleidoscope of colour and movement has been created to entice the coffee connoisseur.
Set to our cello song, we open with a beautiful woman enjoying a Vittoria Coffee. At this moment the camera starts to slowly push in. In extreme close-up, we see her face begin to magically pixellate…but the pixels are no ordinary pixels. Her face is made up by the beautiful array of colours of the Vittoria capsules. As this transition happens, the capsules begin to move in a beautifully orchestrated rhythm, almost ‘liquid’ in its nature. The rhythmic movement comes to an end as a pod docks with a Nespresso machine.
A stream of freshly made coffee evokes the camera to discover the variety of packs of Vittoria’s new range of capsules.
Global super brand Uniqlo has are 2,000 stores in Japan and abroad.
New Holland was commissioned to create the launch commercial for the 2020 grand opening of its new megastore in Yokohama.
The shopping complex is called Uniqlo Park consisting of retail stores, amusement facilities, green space and a spacious rooftop. The stunning piece of architecture offers extensive space for shopping with Uniqlo and on the rooftop visitors can gaze at the panoramic view of Tokyo Bay and enjoy the interactive space and playground for the kids. It’s a completely new type of shopping facility where people of all generations can shop, play and relax.
Using stop motion techniques and advanced fx simulations we had a great deal of fun crafting a unique film using colour and texture. The whimsical animation navigates the viewer to explore the 3 stories at Uniqlo Park.
Clemenger Melbourne collaborated with New Holland to create a dynamic retail campaign to showcase the X range of vehicles soon to arrive for BMW Australia.
Using a combination of media stills of the cars, 3d photogrammetry and 2d compositing techniques we produced a vivid light show that was used across both print, social and motion collateral.
It just goes to show what can be done, before the physical vehicles made it to Australian shores!
Performance capture meets motion graphics for augmented reality. Shot on iPhone and rendered in realtime!
In a great collaboration with the wizards at Electric Lens Co. We brought together design, performance and technology to create this mobile experience concept.
The piece visualises an ‘organic’ ghost-like hologram performance, in augmented reality, placed into the environment wherever the user happens to be. In this case in Sydneys Paddington Reservoir Gardens. The ‘ghost’ is a soft snow of fine particles, like grains of sand that catch the silhouette of the figure, as though it were a spectre that was always in the space and is merely illuminated by this dusting of particles.
While this example is rudimentary, and is not intended as a vfx shot, we do think it illustrates the general concept and hints at the potential to a real-time user experience that anyone with a smart phone can view… wherever they may be.
New Holland Creative was commissioned by 72 and Sunny to collaborate with director Stefan Hunt to come up with a quirky and eye catching visual style to launch Kosciuszko Pale Ale this winter.
A beer with altitude. This is Lion Nathans first focused marketing campaign for the brand, and agency 72andSunny created the brand aesthetic for print, social and outdoors. New Hollands specialised skillset in design in motion made us the perfect partner to bring the “Kosci spirit” to life in the film. Using a combination of traditional cut out techniques, stop motion, 3D and motion graphics, our design and animation team worked their magic in a rollercoaster ride down the slopes of Mount Kosciuszko.
The results truly encapsulates what the brand is all about and it is fantastic kick off to Kosciuszko Pale Ale’s first ever marketing campaign.

Our Muse, Ayami Nakojo is transported through a labyrinth of mystery as she discovers a world of no rules. From the very first sketch on paper through to the final composition in Flame each scene was crafted by New Holland to inspire a world where avant-garde styles are created every day, in all its eccentricity and chic brilliance.
An Esher world of endless stairs. A cavernous underworld of a gravity defying maze through to the electricity of Tokyo Noir, this is a film with No More Rules… For good measure it even has a flying whale made of diamonds!
For those that love the quirks of Japanese television…it’s crazy in execution. No wonder that KATE remains Japan’s No.1
New Holland was approached by their good friends at Plastic Wax, for another collaboration.
This time our design chops where required for the latest instalment in the Tom Clancy franchise. Working closely together we created this trailer to launch at the 2019 E3 conference.
Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad is a mobile game that unites the iconic characters from across the entire Tom Clancy universe. The title brings together characters from The Division, Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell franchises, and includes the bearded Nomad as well as infiltration specialist Sam Fischer himself. Additional characters include Caveira, El Sueño, Montagne, and Nomad.
Production was managed by Plastic Wax, while our design team created a series of vignettes to introduce each character before showcasing the mobile game play available on both iOS and Android devices.
New Holland celebrated the Netflix feature I AM MOTHER hitting the screens in 2019, featuring the company’s innovative and striking design for both the lead titles and closing credits.
When the film’s director Grant Sputore approached New Holland to create a title sequence to fit within the aesthetic and production values seen throughout the film, the crew jumped at the chance after seeing a preview of the film in the ComicCon trailer.
“Our eagerness to problem solve at the earliest stages of design development helped us showcase to Grant and his production team what we think would fit perfectly in their film,” said New Holland founder and creative director Brendan Savage. “It is our job as designers to work closely with the film makers, and we successfully blended conceptual thinking with a creative design approach for I AM MOTHER. I’m really proud of the results, and proud to be part of the creative team on such an awesome piece of filmmaking.”
Mitsubishi Motors Australia and RichardsRose have unveiled their latest campaign, ‘Nothing can Frighten a Triton’.
The campaign bursts on to all broadcast and social channels with haunting visuals by New Holland and a ground-pounding track composed by Grammy Award-winning remixer Dennis White.
Directed by Jonathan Nyquist of McFly, RichardsRose approached New Holland for our combined talents in concept design, illustration and seamlessly integrated visual effects. All work was painstakingly created in-house at New Holland, including final post in Flame. New Hollands artist, Simon Cowell painted all the “surreal” Ghost Train hoardings which were then made into working 3D doors that we see throughout the television & digital campaign.
One way to really understand the Skoda brand is to demonstrate what it means in other countries. Skoda gets hearts racing in the WRC2 rally championship, support the peloton in the Tour de France while their concept vehicles showcase the latest in high tech for the near future.
In this brand film we bring to life how simply clever Skoda cars are in Australia.
DDB Sydney sought out New Holland for their design sensibilities to create a film that was equally as clever to Skoda. We came up with a treatment with a beautiful and sophisticated typographical technique that literally brings to life the words ‘SIMPLY CLEVER’.
Two Mad Cowboys commissioned us to design and animate a motion graphics piece to showcase the new “smart” technology in the EiQ chip.
Breville latest ovens, use the EiQ chip. Using houdini fx, we designed a an abstract circuit board on multiply levels in 3D space and then used various sound cues to pulse an electric energy along the circuitry and out through the motherboard. From above it makes beautiful line art for use in graphic design collateral.
New Holland was approached by tech agency T&DA to design and animate the motion graphics interface for their assignment for Anglo American. We collaborated to create a bespoke showcase for a conference that Anglo were the main sponsor for.
As the company is quite tech savvy, they envisioned holograms to showcase a ‘Tech Hub’ that represents their built-software that reads the data of the tasks their operators and machinery-undertake to determine if it’s safe or not. With real hologram technology only conceptualised and in the nascent stages of development, our approach to creating a consumer facing and compelling hologram rests on utilising existing technologies to mimic the look and feel of those that we see in Hollywood blockbusters.
Given that there are numerous amounts of data, we presented this data in interesting ways applying motion and UI design. T&DA utilised the latest in transparent display technology and we are able to design and fabricate large display units that resemble something out of a science fiction film set. T&DA partnered with Studio Kite to 3d Print the desk builds, and designed an area of the booth that could show case what the future of Anglo American could like.
New Holland was commissioned to create the titles and on-air graphic package for the next adventure in the popular SBS food series, Destination Flavour China.
Both were produced by drawing upon the influence of Chinese culture and cuisine, and blending this with traditional and modern design. They were created to take the audience on a journey with Adam Liaw to gain an understanding of the different regions and food styles around China, while maintaining consistency with the overall Destination Flavour series.
Destination Flavour China’s titles spawned from an idea to work with a parchment and paint style. Creating the effect for the painted look was made by feeding the footage frame by frame through an algorithm to “paint” the image in a traditional style. The result was then blended together with bespoke animated paint elements bringing together the final result. The aesthetic for the title sequence dictated the elements and style for the rest of the content we created for all episodes that is screening on SBS and SBS OnDemand.
Foxtel has launched a new campaign for its new streaming device – the Foxtel Now Box, the simple way to stream Foxtel direct to your TV.

New Holland directed the commercial, which combines the designers and animators from New Holland Creative with the amazing vfx artists at Alt.vfx. A big thank you to the guys at TBWA Sydney, Felix, Foxtel and Alt for the opportunity to breathe life into the new Foxtel Now streaming device.
New Holland had the great pleasure to be involved in “Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition” organised by the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
MANDELA My Life: The Official Exhibition, is a new world class exhibition on Nelson Mandela’s extraordinary life, curated from the extensive collections of the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. A century on from his birth, this exhibition poetically and emotively explores the personal and public life of one of the most influential men in modern history.
Design Director Brendan Cook commissioned New Holland to illustrate figures in a traditional figure drawing style for a 10mins film that is being shown at the exhibition at Melbourne Museum. New Holland’s talented concept artist Simon Cowell used his experience in figure drawing and inspiration in Edgar Degas’ charcoal figure drawings to illustrate every single frame by hand.
World Premiere is in Melbourne in Sept 2018.
In a new TVC campaign for Volkswagen Australia to release the new 2017 Golf, New Holland Creative was commissioned by Goodoil Films to work with director JH Beetge on an 80s design aesthetic with a futuristic vibe.
New Hollands brief was to make the future real by looking through the lense of a child and featuring the 80’s video game, Saturday morning cartoons and futuristic icons we all grew up with. We created a bespoke cartoon sequence, using the same cell animation techniques used in the era, along with an 8-Bit gaming sequence harking back to the old Atari console.
Redefined. Reimagined. Reinvented.
In a landmark development for Perth, Westfield Stirling is redefining the role of a major centre. It will be positioned at the top of the hierarchy by reinventing the future aspirations of what a Westfield destination is to the community.
Scentre Group sought to again team up with New Holland, in this their second major collaboration to visualise the latest development for Stirling. Created entirely in 3D before the first excavating hole is dug on site. The highly experienced team of architects and interior designers worked closely with our artists to create a world class architectural film for Westfield. We raised the bar from our Newmarket, Auckland film to create a visualisation that was full of life, colour and movement, showcasing the restaurant, markets and shopping precincts.
Such massive productions is a thrill for our team. An visualising Westfields landmark developments come not much bigger than this.
WITH collective approached us to design and create an animated 3D lock-up to be used across a variety of media channels.
The device reflects Foxtel’s best ever offer for the sports they broadcast. Using the textures and detail in the various sporting elements make this piece pop off the page. From the subtle hint of branding embossed on the basketball, to the stitching on the cricket ball and even the fuzz of the tennis ball, all these elements come together to make you want to grab hold of the $39 and give it a squeeze.
The offer lock-up appears both alone and in conjunction with a series of sporting legends. We also created an animated version which is used across TV, digital banners and outdoor media.
To launch the all new Toyota C-HR, BWM Dentsu, Sydney, has created a campaign aimed at a cosmopolitan demographic in search of the “Thrill of the Next”.
This commercial unapologetically shows off the C-HR’s slick design, technology and performance as the car seamlessly moves a young couple from one experience to another. New Holland was commissioned to work closely with Exit Film director Ben Tricklebank to design all the concept art for the varied set pieces and experiences seen throughout. Starting with the layout and overall aesthetic of the huge chamber hall for the C-HR to drive through, we then designed the multitude of individually themed rooms, with various robotic lighting installations, mirrored illusion walls and montage of stadium sized video screens that resolve through to the hero pack-shot of the car.
All our concept art was completed before the shoot to aid a seamless production that required innovative, live-action camera work and amazing visual effects by the talented team at Alt.vfx.
Our various room and lighting installations models were supplied to Alt, firstly for their meticulously planned pre-vis, which then flowed through to the awesome photorealistic cg seen in the completed commercial.
In this brand campaign for M&C Saatchi Sydney, director Carl Rinsch and Alt.vfx had the enviable assignment to produce a total of four commercials, jam packed with stunning visuals combined with a beautiful but quirky Japanese aesthetic.
New Holland was commissioned to deliver scenes that needed our specific design sensibilities. A creative phase started with us completing the concept design for the Japanese themed gallery room that is seen throughout the tv, digital and print campaign.
New Holland was also responsible for delivering the challenging technical tasks of creating the electric mayhem of a Tesla Coil, along with the mesmerising effects of the Pin Cube and the detailed form of the archers iris. Using Houdini 3D software and Redshift for rendering, New Holland was more than happy to meet this challenge to reach the lofty standards set by Alt.vfx
Our design work and animated sequences were only a small part in the overall scheme of such a large production, but it was rewarding to work with Alt.vfx and Carl who appreciate what these nuances bring to their projects.
New Holland was commissioned by Foxtel Lifestyle channels to create and design direct an original titles sequence and graphics package to complement the visual look of ‘Stage & Screen’ and the Foxtel arts channel.
Warm tones, interesting shapes and textures, and shallow focus macro cameras contribute to the show’s developed look and feel and was our first project rendered in Redshift.
New Holland created the design and vfx for the Queensland governments biofuel initiative in collaboration with agency Ogilvy One20, and directed by David “davros” Wallin. The campaign features the 2015 V8 supercar champion Mark Winterbottom, the ambassador in Queensland to promote E10 fuel.
Using a combination of maya and houdini, the E10 liquid travels from the fuel bowser – and becomes the catalyst to magically create the fuel system and engine of the car. Travelling from this macro view of the engine, the camera pulls back to reveal the car build being completed.
You cannot say New Holland isn’t diversified!
In this, our first video game collaboration with the cinematic wizards at Plastic Wax, our design skills were used to create an exciting style to the trailer announcing Hitman 2.
To create something spectacular and evocative we needed to fuse together direction, a strong design aesthetic, animation direction and the best CG in the business. A graphic film like this one can inherit the beauty of contemporary graphic design, and natural CG cinematography from PlasticWax while infusing the motion graphics with simple storytelling and purpose.
We love to make things look beautiful, painting every frame in its best possible light. Warner Bros. Games and IO Interactive were very happy with the results.
Recently recreated and updated in 2017 in 4K for the Australian governments film organisation, Screen Australia. This animation is based on a sculpture of liquid light that swirls in 3D space to form the logo identity.

New Holland has always been about challenging our clients in positive ways. Pushing them to try new things, to push themselves outside their comfort zone, to go somewhere new, to try something different. We treat ourselves the same way, as we believe that pushing ourselves and trying new things outside of our film and commercial design skillset is part of an ongoing process of becoming better, sharper, clearer.
When we were contacted by the highly experienced and very talented team from Scentre Group, who were seeking a world-class Architectural film for their latest flagship Westfield development in Auckland, New Zealand, we jumped at the chance. This was a perfect way to push, challenge, create.
As New Holland Creative had previously never tackled work of this nature, it initially seemed like New Holland was a strange choice for such a high-calibre client. However the creative team at Scentre Group led by Nicholas Thiolouse were just as critical of their own standards as we were of ours; they sought a collaborator who could push them and challenge their way of approaching these projects, and in our collective pool of experience they saw such a collaborator. Such a client is what you dream of!
Over the course of this monumental project the New Holland team became experts at creating beautiful and highly realistic architectural renderings, utilising our experience in feature film VFX to balance the lighting, frame the camera and evoke a mood.
At the end of the day it’s the results that tell the real story, and the teams at New Holland and Scentre Group could not be happier with the end product.

A Project of Epic Proportions
When our friends at Artists in Motion contacted us to help deliver the Opening Ceremony animation for the 2017 Solidarity Games, we jumped at the chance.
Artists in Motion are experts in the field of event based graphics, with the Opening Ceremony requiring a 2 minute sequence named HOPE, which featured fully CG environments combined with highly choreographed dance routines, to be filmed on the Fox Studios back lot.
AIM contacted New Holland, as they sought a team of artists who they could trust to not only deliver beautiful CG environments to the highest quality, but who could also bring an elegant design sensibility to the overall piece. Working from the previz and static models created at AIM, the task for New Holland was to breath life into the scenes and to create a magical experience while remaining true to the underlying design aesthetic.
The project itself was on a truly epic scale, with the final projection appearing on a screen which was 80 metres across and live streamed around the world to many thousands of viewers.
Event based work is something New Holland has always wanted to explore, and this collaboration with the fantastic team at Artists in Motion provided us with the opportunity.
