QER 3D Process Animation

QER required an animation demonstrating the operating process of their new Oil Shale processing plant in Gladstone, to be used on touch screens for community education and demonstrations. Animation Ink developed a clear, easy-to-understand 3D animation and a custom, interactive screen design showing the plant’s internal workings. These projects were also complemented with a series of additional animations for use in community consultation and demonstration sessions, and for internal education. The success of these productions led to our being contracted to complete a second, shorter 3D animation for trade shows and web viewing, and a DVD series was also produced for local and international distribution.


APPEA The Journey of CSG to LNG

With the backing of major coal seam gas producing companies, including Arrow Energy, Origin, QGC and Santos, APPEA called on Animation Ink for the production of a DVD that would promote coal seam gas and liquefied natural gas as a safe and viable energy resource. Uniting these key industry players, the DVD aimed to explain how the gas is produced, its uses, and the important environmental and safety measures taken by companies to ensure more efficient and greener production. Animation Ink produced and duplicated over 20,000 DVDs, with the production released for both domestic and international consumption to governments, local councils, community groups, schools, and for in-house training.


Coffee 3D drilling illustration

Drawing on our experience in mining industry modelling and animations, Animation Ink completed a cross-sectional 3D illustration depicting the coal seam gas drilling process for a public audience. The illustration showed the fracturing drilling process underground in detail, and local communities and groups interpret the data as an educational A0 diagram.


Arrow Energy Field Guide

Arrow Energy contracted Animation Ink to develop a pocket size environmental field guide for its employees working in pipeline construction. Using an array of 3D illustrations, the guide provided on site engineers and construction workers with layout instructions and dimensions for working on farm lands and in fragile nature corridors, helping to streamline their processes and minimise environmental disturbances.


Origin Energy CSG Process Production

Developed to illustrate the joint venture between Origin Energy and Conoco Phillips, this DVD production outlined the two companies’ current projects and commitment to their new alliance in the coal seam gas arena. Animation Ink produced a number of animations especially for this production, including complex animations of the drilling process and resulting gas flows. The production was viewed domestically and by foreign investors.


Blue World Architecture

Blue World Architecture engaged Animation Ink to develop 3D renders of a housing estate development in New South Wales, Australia. Two detailed, high definition 3D renders were produced, illustrating the layout of the townhouses and of the overall complex.


Arrow Energy CSG DVD Production

Animation Ink supplied Arrow Energy with a professional DVD production which simplified its CSG process for non-technical audiences around the world. From the formation of coal seam gas, to drilling, gas flow, and production for gas turbines, our clear and dynamic animations provided a powerful visual education tool. The video, which was dubbed in Hiri Motu and Mandarin, was shown domestically and to audiences in China, Indonesia, and PNG.



Animation Ink was contracted by AARC to complete a series of 3D animation renders and fly throughs for a newly developed coal mine in central Queensland. Drawing on all available data, we developed a complex 3D landscape including details such as homesteads, trails and roads on site.


Australian Ice Racing

In the lead up to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, Animation Ink was called upon to develop a website for the Australian Ice Racing Federation. As well as serving as an informational base for the federation, the site was constructed to provide up to date news and results for those following the events from back home.


Runge ICT Corporate Design

Drawing on our strong grounding in graphic design, Animation Ink provided a new corporate design for Runge ICT, formerly known as Runge Networks. Responding to the client’s desire for consistency, the company’s existing logo, colour scheme and portfolio layouts were all incorporated in the new design.
