Nutrish Meal Soups

This beautifully crafted campaign brings together filmed sequences featuring people with a variety of busy lifestyles showcasing the speed of cooking the tasty soup from scratch. We styled the food and filmed in our own studio space, then crafted the edit adding original 2D characters over the next few weeks in After Effects. To help… Read more »

Discovery Garden

This delightful campaign is for Woolworths ever popular Discovery Garden franchise. Our brief was to bring four illustrated insects off the pack and set them free in several idyllic garden locations shot by New Zealand based Director Melanie Bridge. Our animators modelled and rigged the characters using both 2D and 3D techniques then tracked them… Read more »

Picked For Christmas

If Christmas is a time for a little magic, then perhaps this latest piece of CGI creature wizardry for the Woolworths Christmas campaign will make you want to believe. RES were invited to bid on creating a fully photo real Australian Mistletoe bird that would open this stunning TVC, and deliver freshly picked cherries to… Read more »

Wake Up to Sleep

Director Tim Dyroff and a dedicated crew shot for 12 days around Australia from Sydney’s CBD in wind-down to the rugged corners of Tasmania and Western Australia to capture these stunning landscapes by night. Nothing was more important than seizing these nocturnal moments…not even sleep! Working closely with the amazing team at AJF Partnership Melbourne,… Read more »

Elevit: Core

This breath-taking piece of live-action, design and animation takes you into the world of an unborn child as it develops over nine months. Directed by Tim Dyroff, who subtly captures the miracle of life unfolding with warmth and a sense of discovery. This project was beautifully realised by our 3D team who used their finesse… Read more »

Whatever The Yes

Yes is a word we like, and when we spoke to M&C Saatchi about working with them on this piece for Optus, it was the first word that sprung to mind. M&C were seeking something fresh to kick-off the Yes TV by Fetch launch. We wanted to design illustrations and imagery that not only matched… Read more »

Fear Less

It’s not often that we are asked to scare our audience. What a pleasure to delve into the darker emotion of FEAR utilising exploding, leaking, and contaminated typographic executions for Shift, Sydney. Fast-paced and beautifully lit, the menacingly abstract renditions are supported by closely mic’d sound effects courtesy of Noise International.

It’s a Long Story

The team worked tirelessly for a solid two months using a mix of live-action, stills photography, 2D & 3D animation, and just about every post trick up our collective sleeve. Bulleit was one of those projects that happen now and again that allow you total creative freedom to explore and create some amazing work. The… Read more »

The Art of Noise

Directed and animated by Dylan McIntyre, ‘The Art of Noise’ won one of only two silver Cannes Design Lions in 2013. With a VO and over 20 SFX to illustrate, we created a 90 second animation that would directly connect ‘what you hear’ with ‘what you see’. Through custom scripting, McIntyre developed a way to… Read more »

Ka-Ching! Pokie Nation

‘Ka-Ching! Pokie Nation’ is a very powerful documentary that screened on the ABC, that lifts the lid on the inner workings of the gaming industry. Working with Director Jane Manning from Looking Glass Pictures and the late Neil Lawrence, Resolution had the complex task of visualising some of the extraordinary statistics and science at play.

Your Finder

Around 20 holiday icons were created in 3D with a simple shaded look. The clean graphic set-up allowed the team to continually bounce between complex and simpler compositions, allowing the viewer to be both teased with the dazzling patterns, while also making sense of the objects unraveling before them. The camera travels forward at a… Read more »

Devil’s Cut

In 2013 this spot for Devil’s Cut won one of only three Global Effies. Creating it involved two months of painstakingly detailed 3D design, texturing & animation, that grew in scope as the sophistication of the look for the barrel and hero droplet increased. Devising a wooden barrel that could convincingly twist, without feeling too… Read more »

Bom Bom Bom

The three day shoot was shot in an eggshell studio to give a 360º environment providing endless depth. A huge 36 products are advertised across the campaign, each one a mini-commercial in itself. When a product would be difficult to shoot or animate to the beat, Resolution created it in 3D; allowing the freedom to… Read more »

Air Force 1

One of our first jobs for then emerging Director Christopher Riggert, we had a pivital role in evolving the creative and winning accolades from around the globe in design circles for our compelling use of 3D for this iconic shoe from Nike.

Possibilities

Online, the most played RES commercial ever (so far), this entirely 3D TVC features a wide variety of juxtaposing but complementary typography, design and animation. The type is displayed within some complex 3D environments, and in contrast to that, the elemental fonts are employed against flat backdrops.

175 Years

This has been one of our largest shoots, spanning 9 locations over 6 days. To assist the live action shoot, we set up a 3D/2D suite on-set, so the director and agency could visualize in real time how the virtual environment and Arcade shoppers were working together; taking into account camera angle options, shop windows… Read more »

Overnights

This TVC for Photoplay’s Lucinda Schreiber is a wonderfully composited and graded live-action spot with spectacular type treatments designed to bring a light-hearted feel to a less fun situation. Although completed with our usual array of technology we hand animated many of the fonts and designs so they felt old school and fun.

Baby

Saatchi & Saatchi teamed up with RES to capture the fun of childhood in this delightfully fresh and heart-warming campaign. Origami paper illustrations were animated in stop-motion style and combined with adorable live action babies to create a world of play and magic. Shot in a green-screen studio, RES wrangled 20 babies in a massive… Read more »

The Block: Sky High

One of a series of titles packages we have completed for The Block, and a real collaboration between 3D and 2D design to bring the paper city and apartment block to life. The show keeps rating its socks off and we’re very proud to be involved with such a dynamic and popular franchise.

Beautiful Innovation

We worked with BWM to develop a script and treatment that would culminate in the reveal of an impressive floral creation. Director Dylan McIntyre got up close and personal with an array of stunning seasonal flora, resulting in some incredible views of flowers in bloom, rarely seen. Macro photography was used to create a sense… Read more »

Pole Dancing Geisha

Showing our wilder side, RES was commisioned to design all of the classic tattoos and great characters that inhabit this TVC and bring them to life in a eye-popping spot for cinema release. We shot the talent in studio and then projected the animation onto a virtual 3D body to achieve the seamless journey and… Read more »

My Family

The story of an adventure told through a child’s eyes is brought to life through this beautiful animated piece. Characters from the My Family sticker series were created in 3D to take us on the journey, before settling in place on the back of their Kluger windscreen. The photo-real Kluger was built entirely in 3D… Read more »

Who Are You?

An oldie but a goodie. This spot was done at a time when everyone was referencing Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy. Of course it’s fine to reference things, but in the end you want to make something that feels original and true to the product – this is a fine example of that.

Country Stones: Lizard

Choosing to steer away from a fully animated approach for this spot, Director Tim Dyroff decided to film a real lizard, animating 3D facial movements in post. The VO is a real customer testimonial, and nuances of his facial movements and mannerisms were delicately blended into the animation.

Life Changes

Life changes. Could anything be truer? and what a fun brief to bring to the screen with a heightened sense of 3D photorealism. Harnessing an arsenal of visual effects from flash floods to jumping fish, terry towelling toys and self destructing briefcases. Feast your eyes on the things life throws at you in 30 quick… Read more »

Very GC

Using a totally fresh approach to promoting Australia’s Gold Coast, RES was commissioned by M&C Saatchi to illustrate and animate a beautifully contemporary mood piece for print and motion to show the attractions of the region. We pulled a great team of animators together and a both traditional and computed aided technique was melded into… Read more »

The Only One

This great music video came out as part of the launch of the Australian movie, ‘Hey Hey It’s Esther Blueburger’ for singer Bertie Blackman. Apart from producing the shoot through RES for Director Greg Stern, we came up with another layer of imagined narrative that was tracked into the action, all made out of paper… Read more »
