WE CREATE POWERFUL STORIES

ABOUT OUR STUDIO

The best stories do more than entertain us. They draw us in, transport us and inspire us.

We believe creating + sharing powerful stories helps us connect, learn, teach and even change the world.

We create our own Original IP, work with leading studios to bring their stories to life on screen and we can help you too!

Our goal is to create memorable characters and immersive, powerful story experiences that are enjoyed by audiences everywhere – and have fun doing it!

We are a growing collective of professional Artists, Cinematographers and Animators; Directors, Designers and World-Builders; Musicians, Entrepreneurs, and Educators.

Most importantly, we are all storytellers.

Film-making is the ultimate team sport and we love the creative, collaborative process.  Every project is it’s own kind of adventure.

Want to work with us?  We are always happy to connect with amazing people, so let us know how we can help you make something awesome!

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Collaborating closely with Directors and Producers, we iterate sequences quickly and efficiently to allow maximum flexibility to experiment, evaluate and explore creative ideas visually.

Using the script or storyboards as a springboard, we combine character animation, digital cinematography, sets, test lighting, editing and sound design to create a cohesive prototype of your project that communicates the Director’s creative intention for the project.
 
Then, each department of the production can use this prototype, or storyreel, to confidently work toward bringing this shared vision to life on screen.

Even for live-action production, the previs process saves time and resources by allowing similar shots to be grouped together, real-world measurements or spacial requirements of a shot can be solved before the set is built and live-action setups can be streamlined.
 
Staging can be pre-decided and the need for special equipment like cranes or green screens can be identified in advance.

We work with creative and technical decision-makers to translate your vision from script to screen, indentify challenges before production begins and create the strongest story-driven solutions possible for each individual project.

We believe the characters who inhabit the world you envision are more than just pixels on the screen. They are living, thinking individuals with their own goals and dreams –  it’s what makes them so engaging and unforgettable to audiences all over the world.

Focusing on high-end CG keyframe animation, we are dedicated to bringing your characters to life on screen for any type of digital project; feature film, tv, commercials, games, apps, vfx and more.

With a clear creative vision and good planning in preproduction and previs, the animation process can be a straight forward, creative collaboration from the voice record of the actors, all the way to animation of the final polished performance.

We play well with others and can assist your project at any stage of the production process.  We can work with your existing assets and preproduction materials, or we can create your project from scratch.  Talk to us to learn more about our pipeline and the animation process or discuss the individual needs of your project.

Real-time motion capture brings direct interaction and creative freedom on set for Actors, Directors, Cinematographers and Game Developers; speeding up previs and animation by bringing their characters to life on the screen immediately.

Also known as Performance Capture, Motion Capture refers to the technical and creative processes used to record, transfer and enhance performance.
 
Smaug, Ceasar, The Na’avi, Gollum, Nathan Drake, Tin Tin, dancing penguins, orcs, goblins,Will and Bill Krill and many more engaging characters have been brought to life by combination of cutting edge motion capture tools, artists and talented actors.

We love the challenge of working on all kinds of projects including previs, film, tv and games.  No matter how the character is designed; realistic or stylized, human, alien or anthropomorphic, we ensure the character on screen remains true to the Director’s vision and the actor’s intent.
 
Every subtle movement reveals emotion.

From casting actors and combat specialists, to shooting script support, to the capture day, to the clean up and motion editing to correct and enhance the performance; We work with you every step of the way to ensure the process is easy, collaborative and achieves your goals.
The only limitation is your imagination.

Authentic and engaging visual content is the most effective form of communication in the world today, which is why we bring our cinematic lens and focus on narrative storytelling to every image.

Fashion events, music videos, behind the scenes footage or marketing material; If an image is worth a thousand words, we can help you make sure your images speak with the right words, to the right people.

We believe every image tells a story and it is proven that story is the most powerful way to connect with your audience, where they are…Anywhere in the world at any time that suits them.
 
Your audience, your tribe, your fans, followers and customers want to hear what you have to say and see what you do.  Most importantly, they want to experience your “brand story,” interact with you and feel connected to others like them.

The best marketing and sales results are achieved by effective communication and building relationships. The most effective and authentic ways to introduce yourself so this kind of relationship can grow, is by creating powerful visual content; photo and video.
 
Every project is its own kind of adventure, with its own challenges, from concept and script writing through to final delivery, everything is taken care of.

Bringing our experience in graphic design, advertising, marketing and our understanding of story and emotion, we create powerful visual content that helps you stand out from the crowd, and connect with your audience.
 
We also play well with others, so if you are working with a PR firm, marketing or design agency, we would love to support and enhance their efforts.

WHO HAVE WE WORKED WITH?

WHY WORK WITH US?

WE LOVE CREATING COOL STUFF

Every project is hand made – yes, even though we use the most cutting edge digital tools. From the humble pencil to a 72 camera motion capture stage and everything in between, we simplify the production process, carefully selecting the right tools for your project.

We celebrate the impact individual artists skills, experience and values they bring to each project, at every step of the journey.

WE ARE STORYTELLERS - FIRST

Before characters move, before we start painting or designing, before anything else, we focus on the emotional and structural core of your project…Story.

Story defines when and where your characters live, how they look, how they move and how they interact. Story development ensures the audience is able to suspend their disbelief, to become immersed in the story and feel a range of emotions as the story unfolds.

WE PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS

Directors, Producers, Production Companies as well as Communications, Marketing and Design Agencies, we can use your existing assets, or develop your project from scratch.

Talk to us about how we can help translate your dream to the screen, execute your creative vision and support and enhance your clients brand with visual storytelling.

WE PROBABLY SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE!

Founded by Luke Flanagan in Melbourne, Australia, Turbine Pictures now has a creative hub in Madrid, Spain, with a growing team of artists who hail from all over the world, including in Mexico, Colombia, Spain, Italy, France and Germany.

We are very proud to work with talent from such diverse cultures and are constantly inspired by each others traditions and heritage of art, design, cinema and storytelling.

WE BELIEVE IN BRIGHT CREATIVE FUTURES

As artists and life-long learners, we are grateful for the support, knowledge and experience our supervisors, leads and mentors have invested in us; who have helped all of us to level up our skills and build our dream careers.

Having formally taught students at colleges in Australia and Mexico, we like to collaborate with universities, colleges, schools, individuals and junior artists, when viable, to share our experience and give others the opportunity to develop the technical and professional development skills they need live the creative career of their dreams.

WE LIVE LIFE AS AN EPIC ADVENTURE

We discover, we travel, we experience cultures, we explore, we learn languages, eat awesome (sometimes strange) foods and we forge friendships.

Infusing our projects, our characters and the worlds we create with real, authentic moments and emotions from our own lives is what really helps our characters come to life on the screen and connect with audiences everywhere. The world is an amazing place and endlessly inspiring, so we encourage everyone to get out there, live every day and have an adventure!
