SimpleMotion had such fun helping to get the wonderful Wizard of Oz production ready for its Australian tour. Can't wait to see it when it lands in our home city of Sydney in the New Year!
Congratulations to everyone involved in Muriel's Wedding. SimpleMotion are so proud of our contribution to this amazing new Australian production that is winning rave reviews!
The Australian Ballet's production of Alice in Wonderland opened to rave reviews in Melbourne this week. SimpleMotion is very proud to have played our part in making it a truly spectacular production.
SimpleMotion could not be happier that Imagination Australia has been awarded the Best Technical Achievement or Innovation Award at the Australian Event Awards last night. The project "Freedom of Movement" was the belle of this year's Vivid Festival. We are extremely proud of our work on engineering, building and installing the beautiful, automated Swings for this project.
SimpleMotion designed, installed and operated the automation and catenary system that flew performers for the opening ceremony of the South East Asia Games 2017.
The brief was to design a kinetic sculpture that integrated audio and light to create a thrilling response to Ford's 'Go Further' theme. While, Vivid is known for its incredible light shows, with this installation we wanted to create not just a visual treat but an opportunity for audiences to play with the installation.
We started SimpleMotion with a key motivation. We wanted to create the next generation of automation tools that made it simple to move things. Those things might be all the moving elements in a huge arena production or the many little parts of your kinetic sculpture or your blinds opening and closing in response to the temperature.
This time last year SimpleMotion was but a glint in our eye. Fast forward a year and SimpleMotion has delivered automation experiences for Sydney Theatre Company and Australian Opera amongst many others and we are on track to launch our own automation products in 2017!
