With the new election coming up, Gruen Nation has returned and a new title sequence comes with it! Hackett Films worked tirelessly on this stop motion project – only for the overthrowing of Gillard overturning a lot of their plans! The have made it through in the end with this great piecerendered in a stylised Aussie landscape made mostly from paper, with a few scale models as well.
Also check out this Making Of Timelapse to see some of the effort that went into shooting it.
Steve Baker’s new film is a real triumph. Funny, sad, heartfelt, and beautifully made.
Baker won the Tropfest title back in 2007 with one of his first shorts- An Imaginary Life- the first time an Animated film won the grand prize at the festival. He went on to win an AFI for his film- Dog with Electric Collar in 2008 and since then has been working as a director at Taxi Film.
Animator Toby Pedersen teamed up with his good mate, Johnny Pajak (who handled the illustration) and directed this great ad for Census Australia.
Great execution that successfully managed to transform a ‘boring’ topic (Census) into an entertaining and informative piece!

The series is being commissioned by online ‘media group’ Jash- A collective effort from Tim & Eric, Micheal Cera, Sarah Silverman and Reggie Watts. Unforgivably we didnt share the first installment with retired wrestler- Iron Sheik. If you missed it, now’s as good a time as any to catch up!
