GM wins ACS Gold for “Z-Flex Skatelapse”

We’re uber excited to have been awarded a Golden Tripod at the Australian Cinematographers Society awards, held at the Novotel Manly Pacific in Sydney!

It was one of those projects that required no internal discussion, workshopping or debate. We all know what we wanted to achieve, and it turned out precisely as envisioned.

To celebrate, we’re releasing a little Behind The Scenes video. We’ve had rather a lot of people – cinema nerds and otherwise – asking how it was done. So we hope this demystifies the process a little:

Cardno 2012 Global Promotion

Shot in Los Angeles and Brisbane for a rapidly expanding engineering firm, this promotion moved away from the standard scripted production to create a unique documentary style piece.

Unscripted input from staff at all levels combined with executive interviews, high-end motion control timelapses and animation to create a global corporate presentation aligned to the values and market position of the brand.

“Cardno chooses Graetzmedia as they have an outstanding reputation and came highly recommended. As a growing global company we are currently producing our third corporate DVD with Graetz, based on the exceptionally positive group-wide feedback we’ve had on their previous projects with us, and their strong ability to educate  and inspire through stunning visual mediums.  Graetz are like a needle in a haystack. They assisted throughout the process and provided lots of guidance and suggestions. They were placed under significant pressure to deliver in a short timeframe. The standard of their production, attention to detail, perfectionism and the value received has been outstanding. Feedback on Graetz’s projects has been overwhelmingly positive and significant. These guys have real talent but they also possess something else which comes around a little less often – genuine passion, and it shows in the work they deliver.”
