Our Projects


Our film projects are produced at the highest quality, drawing on years of film-making experience. Our team is compiled of everything from industry greats to enthusiastic new comers. Activate Entertainment is equipped to take on the largest job to the smallest of projects. Nothing is too big or too small.

    For IOR’s 30th year celebration, Activate Entertainment was approached to create a 15min mini documentary profiling this prolific oil company. We traveled across the great state of Queensland to meet their team and hear their stories. Using a combination of motion graphic and live action footage, we traced back the origins of IOR Petroleum to the humble town of Eromanga in central Queensland where their story begun. To capture the true breadth of this organisation our mini film crew traveled Australia wide to interview clients, customers and staff. 

    In partnership with the Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing and the Queensland Academy of Sport, we produced the promotional videos for the QAS4Schools initiative.

    Working with the delightful flipside circus, we breathed life into their new branding using motion capture technology. Flipside Circus engaged Activate Entertainment as part of their rebranding to assist with producing a video which would align with the organization's new direction. As their funky new logo consisted of a series of colourful lines and circles, we decided to explore what it would be like if this image came to life as one of their workshop participants. The results are pretty special. 

    We produced a series of online videos which showcased the qualities and features of one of South-East Queensland’s most luxurious camper vans. In one big day of filming in Strathpine we captured and acquired all content to showcase the experience. We also created a number of how to videos which walked clients through some of the finer details of using the camper.

    We helped entrepreneur Louisa Dyson launch her exciting new venture into the Personal Concierge world with promotional videos.

    The project involved a series of interviews with people involved with Aspire International Youth Music Festival. A range of topics were discussed including their passion for music, the vision for the festival and the impact it has had on those involved. Our expertise in filmmaking allowed us to help tell the great stories behind the Aspire International Youth Music Festival.

Augmented Reality

Activate Entertainment is an industry leader in augmented reality (AR) using the incredible new technology as a storytelling, educational and promotional tool. Their projects have been showcased across Australia at multiple festivals, shopping malls, car dealerships and events.

    “There is a monster on the loose and we need your help to put him back into his enclosure! It is really important that we find him! He is one of many endangered monsters in this world that we need to look after and protect. Find the other monsters, they will help give you clues as to his whereabouts!”

    Using augmented reality technology, participants will meet several invisible and endangered monsters who will assist them in finding the missing monster. This amazing experience encourages teamwork, problem solving and an active interaction with technology.

    Each monster has been modelled from an endangered Australian animal allowing for an engaging exploration about animal extinction and the role humans play.

    “‘It’s fun to be healthy, inside and out!’ There are some strange noises in the library. It is the Wall Thing. He is stuck, half way through the library wall! With his fist clenched he can’t free himself, no matter how hard he tries! With your assistance he has a plan. Scattered all around the school are other creatures that he is confident will help him get unstuck. They are thieves who live in a hidden world. These are the ones responsible for when you can’t find your right sock or your lunchbox. These thieves have very opinionated views about what they like and don’t like –they much prefer to be healthy!”

    This experience uses augmented reality storytelling to move participants through a physical game-like experience. It utilises the classic ‘level-up’ function of gaming where tasks need to be completed and clues decipher in order to progress.

    Teams scan images on posters or other printed material to generate the computer generated creatures. They must listen to the clues delivered by the creatures then fulfill any request they are given. An example of this may be the Lunchbox Thing who will explain that he will happily provide information, in exchange for a healthy lunchbox. An unhealthy lunch box will also be a choice, however participants need to scan the healthy option to progress in the game. Once this is done they will be given the clue for the location of the next monster.

    The Thing in the Wall is available for download from the Apple App Store.

    MedAugment™ app is the output of a research collaboration in Australia, between Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Activate Entertainment, NPS MedicineWise, Diabetes Queensland, TerryWhite Chemmart Group, and Princess Alexandra Hospital – Diabetes and Endocrine Clinic, supported by Heart Foundation.

    Working with one of Brisbane’s fastest growing employment relationships companies, we brought to life a series of quirky animations to help get clients quickly get up to speed with the company’s processes. When clients begin engaging in a dispute process it is often stressful, confusing and upsetting. Our aim with this series of animations was to produce content which would relay the desired information in a way that would retain their attention and maybe just generate a smile or two!
