Old Tech New Decks

Old Tech New Decks is a show about creating new music using old technology and is part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Australian composers Vanessa Nimmo and Matt Rankin have woven together clacking typewriters, bleeping DOS games, and melodious Nokia ringtones into an intriguing and unique aural experience.

Image Workshop took on the challenge to create this teaser ad to promote the show, including concept creation, development and production.

Jarrod frocks up for frocktober

You don’t often see men dressing up in frocks, let alone to do a glamourous 1930s style photoshoot. This short promotional video showcases one man’s efforts to raise money for ovarian cancer research – shot, edited and published by Image Workshop in just two days – Jarrod Bates explains why he’s wearing a bejeweled gown and how you can help a worthy cause.


This video, commissioned by the 6th SCAPE Christchurch Biennial of Art in Public Space, explores Melbourne artist Ash Keating’s “Gardensity” installation: a physical structure housing a film projection about the future of inner-city living in Christchurch plus an online discussion forum.

Don’t try this at home, kids!

Come join us in a warehouse as we shoot some promo portraits of alternative circus performers the Damaged Duo. These girls do stuff you have see to believe – luckily you can see the final pics from both this and a second shoot (Contortion! Juggling!) in our Project Gallery.

Plus we’ve chucked some lighting diagrams and camera info in the video for fellow lighting nerds out there on the ‘net.
