This week, Hackett Films celebrates three character-driven projects for clients spanning safety and education, advertising and the arts.
The three projects are ThinkBefore.com, a student safety campaign, the new title-sequence for the top-rating Gruen Nation, and imagery and storyboarding for Australia’s first comic book and manga inspired festival and competition, Sydney Opera House’s GRAPHIC.
Hackett Films created the ‘ThinkBefore.com’ umbrella brand for the Victorian Police in response to a brief for a one-minute animated film that addresses the increase in violence against international students. ThinkBefore.com will be officially launched on Friday 6 August.
The Gruen Transfer brand received an instant make-over for the launch of the four-episode election series, Gruen Nation. Lampooning the transient nature of politics, the 20 second stop-motion title sequence is a humorous collision of political posters, slogans and politicians old and new, before revealing the show’s host Wil Anderson.
Hackett Films was also behind the imagery, brand and sample animatics for Australia’s first two-day comic book and manga festival and competition, Sydney Opera House’s GRAPHIC.
Taking inspiration from the alternate worlds of graphic, spanning comic books, illustration, animation, music and multimedia, Hackett Films created the GRAPHIC logo to capture the way graphic novels are read – as sequential boxed illustrations. They also created the cover art for issues of The Brag and Sydney Morning Herald Metro out this week.
