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. Animation combines these to enable you to communicate big picture research, fast and clearly to everyone.
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, and several Cooperative Research Centres, to communicate with confidence to the public, stakeholders, businesses and policymakers.
Redboat's work has 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 proud to help Australia’s scientists and science communicators make important research, concepts and information accessible and interesting for everyone.
