2013 marked a departure from tradition for AWARD, with the industry's best creative work being published and distributed in a digital format for the first time.
Winning entries were showcased in an iPad app available free on the App Store, allowing the content to be shared farther and wider than ever before.
This project provided an opportunity to spread our creative wings. Wax, paint, silicon, 3D software and a 3D printer all played a part, along with the regular tools of a digital studio of course. The end result was a harmonious blend of old and new.
The Glue Society’s ‘Watch With Mother’ sketch show is an experimental blend of horror and comedy played out across a series of six short episodes.
Such a unique show warranted an equally novel format for experiencing it. We designed and developed an interactive app for iOS and Android tablets, allowing viewers to fully immerse themselves in the content.
A sketch viewing mode allows side-by-side playback of scenes featuring your favourite characters and shuffle mode plays back sketches in a random order.
The app also features the show's soundtrack, director interviews, ‘making of’ footage and photo galleries.
Will O’Rourke and the Glue Society were asked to create a series of thought provoking interstitial videos for TEDx Sydney 2011. The approved concept was based on taking two seemingly contrasting subjects and seeing if there was any correlation between the two. For example is there any correlation between Olympic Gold Medalists and Suicide?
We were tasked with creating an interactive extension of the concept for the TEDx audience to take away post-event. Our iPhone app solution allowed users to compare various contrasting criteria using a minimal visual interface which then displayed correlated results across a world map.
The App quickly became ‘New and Noteworthy’ on the App Store and enjoyed over 30,000 downloads within a 2 week period. The App also picked up a bronze award at this years Spikes Asia.
