The Powerhouse have grown their wonderful Brisbane Comedy Festival exponentially over the past few years. For 2016 we reused some of last year’s footage to showcase the superb lineup the team has brought to Brisbane.
The Brisbane Powerhouse festival of burlesque, circus, cabaret, music and food. All kinds of fun to shoot, and this piece was edited and online less than 24 hours later:
I’ve been filming various events and promos with Brisbane Powerhouse for much of 2015, all the while colluding with them to combine the huge breadth of footage I was capturing into a TV ad which showcases the Powerhouse as a whole.
We dubbed this project the Destination Trailer. It’s part of their Discover Brisbane Powerhouse campaign, which launched in November 2015.
The piece distilled months of filming into precisely 20 seconds, because Television. To include some more awesome stuff we’ve also produced an extended “Director’s Cut” for web.
I’ve been collaborating with Industrial Arc Photography for a number of years, and one of our favourite clients to work with is Airbus Australia. Perhaps it’s because they’re super lovely, professional people. Maybe it’s the incredible toys.
Airbus brought their updated EC145 helicopter for a tour around Australia, and wanted some “Australian” looking footage to show the world. Enter the Sydney Harbour, Opera House, and a little Surf Life Saving for good measure.
I shot aerial footage from another helicopter, hanging out the passenger door with my DJI Ronin gimbal, while 2nd shooter Liam spent the afternoon on a super-yacht sailing around Sydney Harbour. Tough gig.
My collaboration with Brisbane Powerhouse continues, with a promo for the 2015 IRL Digital Festival!
Graetzmedia worked with NEXTDC on the launch of their M1 Data Centre. I was addicted to the music of The Glitch Mob at the time, so suggested their track Warrior Concerto to director Dan.
Then spent some serious time animating titles in SPACE using After Effects, with lots of Trapcode Form, Optical Flares, and Particular, and epic camera moves.
