Kathmandu: We’re out there

Creative Agency: Special Group Australia
Production Company: Exit Films
Director: Stefan Hunt
Kathmandu has had a global rebrand and is on a mission to enhance the wellbeing of its wearers, by reconnecting with nature. ‘We’re Out There’ is their new campaign and it encourages its patrons to focus on how they feel when they go outdoors.

Sanitarium’s Weet-Bix has released a new campaign, ‘Feed the Belief’ encouraging the next generation of ‘Weet-Bix kids’ to follow their aspirations. Heckler was tasked with bringing the children’s imaginations to life for this quintessentially Australian brand, by creating the VFX and CG elements.

KIA: Sorento
Post Production: Heckler
Creative Agency: Innocean Australia
Kanye West’s ‘Dark Fantasy’ was a fitting track to showcase the new Kia Sorento SUV, which has been completely rethought to embody luxury and performance. The Kia TVC was created by Sydney design, animation and visual effects house, Heckler.
Heckler used a combination of real-time 3D creation platform Unreal Engine and Autodesk Maya to create the spots. The Sorento’s exterior assembles from darkness, monolithic metals emerge to form a luxurious interior. The SUV takes shape,
we have ignition, the moon a suitable interstellar playground to test the performance of Kia’s most luxurious model yet.

Post Production: Heckler TV
Producer: Sydney Opera House
Director: Ziggy Ramo
Ziggy Ramo releases the music video for ‘Little Things’, a rework of Paul Kelly‘s classic ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’.

With a First Nations perspective on invasion, intergenerational trauma, and Indigenous deaths in custody, Ramo shares his people’s plight. Heckler was honoured to complete post-production for this emotive and evocative film.
