About

Eric is a Story Visualisation Studio based in Sydney Australia. If you have an idea, or need creative development, we can help. Our aim is to combine the flexibility and speed of traditional storyboarding with 3D previsualisation, creating animatics that are both informative and emotionally resonant. Whether your project is Film, TVC or VR, we help create content that gets greenlit.

FILM

Having helped with creative, story and previsualisation on some of the biggest films of the last 5 years, we can guarantee that our team we will work closely with the Director and Cinematographer to ensure their visions are fully explored and ultimately realised before a cent is spent on production.

We’ve worked directly with Directors Chris McKay, (The Lego Batman Movie), George Miller (Happy Feet), Alex Proyas (Gods of Egypt), Lord and Miller (Lego Movie), Angelina Jolie (Unbroken), Russell Crowe (Water Diviner) and famed cinematographer Roger Deakins to deliver on sequences, and in some cases on set with extremely fast turnaround times.

VIRTUAL REALITY

Eric has developed several full scale Virtual Reality experiences in-house, and holds the patent for an optical VR camera. We know VR.

Our VR Story Visualisation process is a drawing based approach that allows us to simultaneously produce traditional boards, full animatics, and a fully immersive steroscopic VR experience from a single workflow. As soon as the first board is drawn, we have a virtual world the client can enter. VR truly shows off the strength of the StoryVis technique.

COMMERCIAL

Planning a TV Commercial or Music Video? Whether you have a creative brief, or need an experienced director to work with you to create something from scratch, we can help.

StoryVis is about minimising budget and maximising creativity. Other approaches would require Storyboarding, Previsualisation and Tech Visualisation, often at separate studios. Our “StoryVis” Technology allows for us to solve for these creative and technical problems in a single pass, building assets which can be directly used as the basis for the final rendered product, or viewed from multiple angles to inform set builds, blocking and camera rig placement on set, and shaving thousands off the budget.

What is StoryVis?

Imagine drawing in 3D. Visualise your story in full 3D before production begins.

Storyboards are emotive, but not dynamic. Previs is dynamic, but not emotive.

StoryVis combines these two disciplines into one, allowing for emotionally resonant animatics that audiences relate to and directors love. Through StoryVis, our drawings have a relationship in 3D space, allowing us to create full 3D scenes at the speed of thought, finding techvis, previs and story solutions in a single pass.

Beautiful frames

Gone are the days of your animatics looking like video games from the 90s. StoryVis means that your fully 3D scenes have the quality of hand drawn boards.

Fully interactive

Reframe boards. Redraw expressions. Paint props. Ultimate creative flexibility.

inexpensive

StoryVis components are drawn once and used over and over again, resulting in exponential speed.

Industry Proven

Our proprietary software, methods and artists have helped deliver millions of dollars in box office revenue under the guidance of some of the world's biggest directors.

emotionally resonant

Previs strips out all emotion from the storyboards. StoryVis puts it back. Complex camera moves AND expressive characters. Now you can have both.

world class artistry

Work with some of the world's leading visualisation experts, and know your vision will finally be realised.
