University of Sydney — Shanghai World Expo

Hackett Films created three sequences for the Shanghai Expo showcasing the work and research of the University of Sydney and its ongoing ties with China. Students and professors were rounded up to speak about their fields of expertise, and were filmed against green screen and composited into a virtual university space where further visuals were integrated to help explain their research. The live action was directed by Chris Tan with Jean Camden compositing the animation alongside Chris.
