Explaining complex, technical ideas and information quickly and in simple terms requires a methodical and detailed approach. But to make it engaging and compelling requires imagination and creativity. We combine these to help you communicate big picture scientific research, in clear and engaging animation.

We understand that science communicators are often spread over several campaigns with tight schedules and need a responsive creative service. With our proven 5 stage process you can relax and know the hard work is being taken care of for you.

We have helped leading science organisations, including CSIRO, DATA61, Geoscience Australia, Science Technology Australia, Cooperative Research Centres, and leading universities to communicate with confidence to the public, stakeholders, businesses and policymakers.

Redboat's work helped a front cover Nature Journal paper engage an even wider audience and engage policymakers with important science. Our science communication animations have been picked up and hosted on several major news sites (Fairfax, etc), massively increasing reach.

As an an experienced science-communication provider and a proud member and sponsor of the Australian Science Communicators Association, we understand the complexities of balancing the needs of multiple stakeholders, public interest and government agencies.

We’re passionate about helping scientists and science communicators make important research, concepts and information accessible and interesting for everyone.

I went to Redboat because I wanted a short, sharp animation about who we are - the elevator pitch concept. The end result was exactly what I was looking for. Redboat were easy to work with and honoured their commitment to the time frame. I would definitely use them again.

"Redboat helped us to create an online animation for interested parties to lean about Marine Zoning. 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."

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 they interacted with the team in developing and fine-tuning the brief. I enthusiastically recommend their work.
