    Fuse Festival logoDan Monceaux spoke twice at Fuse Festival this week, sharing danimations’ creative industries perspective on two music industry panel discussions. Considering the constantly shifting terrain of the music and technology landscape, Dan brought to the event his personal experience as both video producer for danimations and self-managed independent musician as Supermarket. Now in its fifteenth year, Fuse Festival is the longest running annual music industry event of its kind in Australia, and it sustained a vibrant and convivial atmosphere throughout. The three day and night event brought together a wide variety of musicians, managers, publishers, agents, tour bookers and more from around the nation and beyond for an inspiring exchange of ideas and talents. Danimations extends our thanks and congratulations to Alistair Cranney for making us proud to be a part of South Australia’s thriving music community.

    Dan Monceaux and Emma Sterling of danimations are currently working on the creative development of a South Australian dance-film project entitled ‘Sleep Disorder’. Director Kat Worth engaged Danimations to direct photography and roll multiple cameras in the first stage of the project which started this week. Supported by ArtsSA, the Australia Council for the Arts and Australian Dance Theatre, Adelaide-based dancers Daniel Daw and Alison Currie take the performers’ roles, while the production team includes Carol Wellman Kelly, Gabrielle Griffin and Nic Mollison. The piece is a creative response to experiences of sleep deprivation and the emotions and distortions of consciousness that come with it. Through the work, Danimations will be demonstrating the more extreme fringes of our creative capacities, including in-camera optical effects, black and white post-production, high-speed (slow-motion) filming and underwater cinematography.

  • danimations adds value to business websites with instructional videos

    The potential for instructional videos distributed online to improve brand awareness and customer service efficiency is significant. The growing popularity of Youtube as a search engine and the general trend towards ‘asking the internet’ when a problem is encountered in daily life create growing opportunities for online video responses to the world’s problems. Using combinations of video-blogging, presenter demonstrations and screen-casting techniques (capturing a desktop’s display in real-time) video presents itself as an engaging, flexible and increasingly attractive value proposition for business. Not only can your videos answer your customers’ frequently asked questions concisely and clearly, your staff can spend less time taking disruptive help-desk phone calls. A good, honest product or service demonstration can also help drive sales and build consumer confidence. Take a look at our first danimations’ Digital Media Tips episode below and consider the value instructional video could bring to your business’ website. As always, your inquiries are always welcome.
