About us

The leading specialists in helping government and science agencies to create awareness, impact, and change, through animation and video.

Our vision is to move human thinking forward.

This year, generating engagement will become increasingly challenging. We face more competition for our attention and our audiences are less tolerant of irrelevant content than ever before. We want communication made fast, fun, simple, accurate, and easy to digest. 

Redboat helps leaders cut through and stand out from the noise, to engage, inform and inspire their audiences.

We've helped organisations like CSIRO, the Department of the Environment & Energy, the ATO, and Geoscience Australia generate large scale engagement with important, complex and sensitive subjects that make a real difference to the lives of Australians. We've also helped Australian brands such as Toyota Hino, CRT, and Hyundai to capture people’s attention and grow their businesses.

We are an innovative, creative company focused on clarity, simplicity, certainty, strategic results, quality of service, customer experience and exceeding expectations.

We work with leaders, organisations and businesses that have a need for clear, strategic and engaging communication to help them touch the hearts and minds of their audiences.

We do this by delivering high-quality, strategically and lovingly crafted animation and video campaigns.

Today, we’re moving human thinking forward, one step at a time.

We're proud to be able to apply our skills and talent to help Australia’s leaders create better futures.

Redboat can help you generate large scale impact and value, through animation and video.

If you have an idea or message to get out and you think animation might be a good medium for it, or you think we might be able to help each others businesses, you're probably right.... and you should definitely get in touch.

"Redboat helped us to create an online animation for interested parties to lean about Marine Zoning. We had a short turnaround time and very specific requirements, which did change at our end during the course of the project. The team at Redboat were wonderful. They offered suggestions to improve the process along the way, never seemed phased by last minute changes and were generally a pleasure to work with. We were thrilled with the end product. I’d highly recommend their services. "

Vivienne Sykes, Brand and Content Manager - Parks Australia
Department of the Environment and Energy

"We used Redboat to tell a complex story in a short animation. We were completely happy both with the result – it make quite an impact at the time and is still being used successfully – and with the professional way in which Adrian interacted with the team in developing and fine-tuning the brief. I enthusiastically recommend his work generally and have done to others who might be looking for similar services."
