CSIRO – Infinity Swing

THE BRIEF

CSIRO and their Energy Flagship wanted a way of kickstarting the public conversation around energy. They came up with the idea of building a 16-metre wide eight-seater swing that uses the kinetic energy generated by swingers to create groovy sound effects and light up letters above the seat to spell the word INFINITY.

The installation n heavy traffic areas of Sydney (Circular Quay) and Melbourne (Federation Square) literally brought traffic to a stop and gave CSIRO staff the change to engage with the community in a broader conversation around energy.

THE SOLUTION

To capture the experience of the Infinity Swing installation and the message it was trying to deliver, Square Fish worked late into the night filming participants at both Sydney and Melbourne locations.

Using our motion timelapse rig, we were able to capture the event across an entire evening – in the end producing a video that captured the fun of the experience and the important messaging CSIRO was trying to deliver.

Hamish and Square Fish are hands down the best video production company I’ve ever worked with. Fast turnaround, competitive quoting, and a super pleasure to deal with. But most of all, Hamish gets it right every time. Once the briefing is done – whether it’s a series of interviews, a corporate promotional video or a launch event highlights reel – the result is delivered fast and with just the right grabs and content selected. There is rarely any need to go back for a second edit. If I had to guess the Square Fish motto, I would say it’s “get it right first time”.

Square Fish have delivered some incredible work for our live music projects. Hamish and the Square Fish team were always accommodating and agile, which was essential to make our tight deadlines work. Despite some difficult timelines and moving targets, the content was always delivered on time, at consistently a high standard and met the brief. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Square Fish again in the future.

Sam Bell

Hamish at Square Fish took on my project and invested his energy into making sure it met all my requirements. His ability to visualise and encapsulate the story and then put this into a video is a true art. The quality of the images captured in the short time frame was amazing and I would highly recommend Hamish to anyone looking to use his services.

Hamish is not only a fine producer of entertaining commercial videos, but is also a highly professional video storyteller. I have dealt with him for years and he excelled himself twelve months ago in producing a video for waverleystation.com. It communicated far better for Waverley than anything preceding it and attracted over 25,000 viewers on social media.
