        pictureDRIFT created the motion graphics package for the television broadcast of the 2014 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardigras for Golden Duck Productions and SBS2. Building on the established 2014 branding theme of diamonds and kaleidoscopes, we developed a program opener that linked together mardigras imagery such as kissing lips, beating butterfly wings, feathers and festival masks with iconic Sydney imagery such as the Sails of the Opera house. These icons were constructed from fractured diamonds and flourishing decorative lines which finally form the mirrored heart logo of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardigras. backgrounds, lower third straps, transitions and footage windows were also created to complete the graphics package.

          pictureDRIFT won a competitive pitch to create the on-air ident to launch the mtv summer 2014 campaign. The brief from mtv was to create an ident that was Fun, colourful, playful, upbeat and energetic featuring colourfully dressed people appearing in the scene to the beat of the building MTV Summer track, like a graphic Equalizer. Out treatment constructed a multi layered scene built up of background, mid ground and foreground action loops. Each loop containing one character performing an action which plays through as a series of echoed movements expanding to fill the scene with complex action, then contracting again in time with the rhythm of the music. The scene space is divided up into colour bands from the mtv summer brand. As the action extends out through the colour bands the characters wardrobe colour changes to match the colour band.

            Carly Heaton, creative director of Foxtel Factual channels, invited pictureDRIFT to collaborate on a launch promo for their new show called "Building Australia". The idea of the promo was to feature the host John Doyle exploring the many different types of historical residential buildings of Australia (including queenslanders, inner city terraces, homesteads and beach shacks. The big challenge was we only had access to the host John Doyle for a few hours and could only get him in one location, yet we wanted to show all the ‘styles’ of Australian House." The solution was to film on greenscreen with minimal props, then build the various houses and environments digitally from location photography and measurements. Detailed measurements and planning were required to ensure that built elements on set such as fences and doors, matched up to the location photography. The photography was projected onto geometry in maya using the glyph plugin. The live action was then tracked, and animated cameras were added. Keying, rotoscoping and and final scene composites were then done in nuke.

                    Jemima's Big Adventure is a new program from the creators of Playschool. For the very first time children are given access to play with Jemima, transporting her into their fantasy filled, adult-free world, touching the Play School brand like never before. In each episode a Play School presenter journeys along a suburban street to drop Jemima off at a friend’s house for a fantasy themed adventurous play session with 6 little friends. Playschool once again commissioned pictureDRIFT to create the program opener, broadcast graphics and logo for it's latest new series. We continued our collaboration with the freakishly talented art department team at ABC’s Children’s Television, photographer Anthony Geernaert and this time round worked with stop motion expert Damien Lay. In the opening titles, through stop motion animation of puppets, sets and materials, we travel through various themed worlds constructed in the Play School aesthetic using simple everyday objects and handmade materials. In each world Jemima features as a hero character in fancy dress, slides down the back of a brontosaurus, flies through outer space in a rocket ship and rides a horse galloping along a rainbow from a magic castle.

                      QBE commissioned a new television commercial to screen heavily during the 2013 Tour de France. Agency creative director Steve Sidhu created a script which focussed on the kinds of wheels used in the various modes of transportation that QBE insurance covers. Building on the "frozen moments" theme developed in the first two commercials pictureDRIFT made for QBE, our treatment involved creating a continuous fluid and free moving camera, which navigates and transitions through simple stylised scenes frozen in time within a clean white space. QBE Wheels was shot with a motion control camera, the footage was then tracked and rotoscoped to allow minimal stylised graphic environments to be added, giving each scene a sense of context.
