Plastic Wax

Plastic Wax is an award-winning Animation Studio combining its extensive experience and innovation in real-time technology, animation, motion capture, virtual reality, and game development.
Ausfilm Member since 2014

For over 20 years, Plastic Wax has a built an international reputation for creating award-winning, cinematic content for some of the most celebrated titles, and last year delivered its 100th project. Specialising in both pre-rendered and ‘realtime in-engine’ productions, Plastic Wax offer clients the full range of directorial and production services.

Compelling animation is the final result of a well-considered design process. Plastic Wax’s experience in storyboarding, camera design, narrative development, characterisation, concept design, developmental treatments and script writing draws upon 20 years of directing content that marries the craft of storytelling with the marketplace it needs to engage.

Over the years, Plastic Wax’s investment in R&D has pushed the boundaries of what can be captured live on the mocap stage using game engines. Imagine being able to preview multiple MOCAP performances applied to their CG characters fully rendered in their environment, all in real-time. The technology also provides the flexibility to adjust lighting, cameras or change locations, wardrobe, characters – instantly, whilst on set. They call this workflow “Real-time Animation.”

Real-time Animation is a game changer for any animated production. The workflow is far more cost-efficient, time-efficient and versatile than conventional animation pipelines, as all the post processes of editing, animation, and rendering can all be done together in-engine, and in real time. As pioneers in this innovation, Plastic Wax are now leading the way in delivering this powerfully efficient workflow to the global animation industry.
