Resurrecting the past

This two-year travelling exhibition showcased the stories of Australia’s military experiences from the First World War, right up to present day, in an immersive and highly memorable way. Recreated environments, over 200 military artefacts, digital effects, films and an audio guide brought the sacrifice and heroism of a hundred years of Australian servicemen and women to vivid, unforgettable life.

Shaped by its visitors

To ensure the exhibition resonated personally with each guest, we also curated a unique new ‘Local Stories’ showcase for each of the 23 communities the exhibition visited, featuring artefacts and stories from their region. Visitors could record and leave behind their own remembrance messages, as well as take away memories that moved them in a virtual story briefcase.

Arm IPO Film

To illustrate Arm's (ARM) incredible growth potential from producing high-performance, power-efficient CPUs for chip designers, foundries, and software developers, Imagination created an IPO film that embodied the company's tagline: "The Future is Built on Arm." The film featured the CEO and CFO, as well as senior executives from leading customers such as Nvidia, AWS and Mercedes, among others. In addition to the 27-minute IPO film, Imagination created short-form videos for the corporate website, IR site, and listing event, plus cutdowns for social media platforms.
