Not just one win but two in a row - Sixty40 has won gold in the AEAF Awards held by Digital
Media World, again. This year they have been rewarded for best in the Education and Training category.
The award was for one of their series of explainer videos designed, scripted and animated for the NBN. The video was directed by Matt Taylor and Mark Simpson (Taylor also did the character design), animated by Sebastian Danta, Will Mercer and Brad Pickford, and sound was by Plush Films.
This reflects a move into the production of online content for Sixty40, which combines
animation skills and character design with a script development and content
Online content is in full blossom right now. Sixty40 is offering this service to both advertising agencies and businesses. Director, Mark Simpson, explained that their aim is to help them get their messages across with the humour and sophistication that keeps people watching while secretly sneaking information to them. “This type of educational or explainer video is a big category in the animation industry now. We pride ourselves on knowing how to do them right to keep people engaged.” Simpson reported.
