Sunday 30th November the newly elected Adelaide City Council Lord Mayor, Martin Haese launched a new augmented reality (AR) app, Christmas in the City. The app was conceived and developed by animation and visual effects studio, Resin. The app provides AR experiences across the city for families to experience throughout the Christmas period. Users download the app, available for free on Apple and Android devices and uses the GPS enabled map to locate markers all over the city. Once activated the markers reveal a number of animations of Santa and his reindeers preparing for Christmas. A key marker is located at the large Christmas Tree installation at Victoria Square then via Town Hall where they can be seen flying down King William Street to Rundle Mall where the fun continues. Along the walk trail markers can be found on the pavement where you may find a Reindeer waiting for the next bus and many more with over 40 separate locations making this installation a first for its scale from our research. The Adelaide City Council will have elves at key locations with iPads to help visitors and enhance the experience for young children. There is also a competition to win an iPad by sharing your images on social media with #ChristmasADL @Nova919. A full map of where all the locations are can also be found at the website as well as links to download the free app.
After being invited to bid on the production of the 2015 Clipsal 500 brand commercial Resin was awarded on the strength of the directors treatment and creative vision for the commercial. With only a five week production schedule and an ambitious scope of work, the commercial is a mixture of pure CGI, visual effects shots, live action that we produced and augmentation of some existing content. The commercial was directed by Resin's Grant Lovering. Checkout the spot.
We are proud to start sharing all our hard work in developing our new app, Two Left Feet. It's a modern day pop-up book that uses 3d animation and augmented reality. Check it out in action on the YouTube promo. Due for release August and will be available in the Apple App Store internationally. Support Website http://twoleftfeetapp.com

We recently handled post on this new commercial for Fantastic Bursts. It also includes CG pack replacement, animation of the product shattering and a CG pack shot to create a seamless animation sequence. The live action shot on Arri Alexa was also graded on the new Resolve suite at Resin. Check out the commercial.
We've recently upgraded the grading theatre with a whole raft of new hardware including a suped up DaVinci Resolve color grading system and new control surface. The theatre is used for finishing all projects at Resin, it can also be booked for grading long form work and dry hired if you want to bring in your own colorist. The theatre is calibrated using a Hubble laser probe and cineSpace calibration tools. Some recent projects to go through the new Resolve system will be posted to the site soon once they are released.
