RIO TINTO mining processes/ marketing
AARONS CGI produced 3D animated corporate videos for the global mining giant Rio Tinto between 2008-2013 with the key role of simplifying challenging technical concepts within the organization and bringing them to life with eye-catching realism. The animations were developed for Rio Tinto Innovation and their associated researchers at Imperial College London and shown in a variety of presentations around the world demonstrating the company’s claims and achievements to investors, stakeholders, researchers, as well as politicians and members of the public.
Images below show the process of froth flotation that uses air bubbles to selectively separate valuable minerals from waste solution.
Chris Goodes, the General Manager of Recovery, Technology and Innovation at Rio Tinto summed up his response to the work:
“…a fantastic piece of work that has received compliments at the highest levels in the organisation. From our perspective, a most useful communication tool which saves a ‘thousand words’ and many PowerPoint slides…”
As you can see, working with a small studio you can achieve BIG results – with the added benefit of keeping your sensitive projects as confidential as possible.
OUTOTEC Smelting furnace operations
Outotec commissioned AARONS CGI to produce a compelling 3D animated corporate video of their Top Submerged Lance or TSL Smelting Furnace complete with realistic 3D computer generated molten liquid metal behaving as accurately as possible in the hellish environment of an industrial furnace. The big challenge was making sure the animated liquid metal realistically adhered to the lance, a major feature of the technology, allowing it to stay cooler and thus last longer.
The final work featured at the Outotec display stand for the 2012 mining expo in Perth, Western Australia.

THERMAL BATTERY Energy storage investor video
AARONS CGI was commissioned to create a 3D animated corporate video demonstrating the process of storing renewable energy as heat, which is then harnessed as electricity on demand. The process is built on innovations in Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology – a complex subject that needed to be conveyed to investors as simply as possible. The project required the creation of a realistic outdoor environment as well as an easy to understand animated process of how the thermal battery system works complete with moving gases and heat flows.The animation was so well received that the company’s partner also uses their branding on the animation as well – a complement to the quality of our work! – one version is aimed at investors with prior technical knowledge, and the other, laypersons.
Paul Keen, CEO & Managing Director at Green Thermal Energy Technologies (gTET) summed up his response to the final work:
“Roger embarked upon our Thermal Battery animation video with scant engineering level data files and descriptions, and the result has been a highly intuitive and easily understood marketing tool that has proved invaluable in communicating our new technology to potential investors and clients. The result exceeded our expectations.”

POWER STATION Public awareness campaign
AARONS CGI created a 3D animated corporate video for the proposed TNG Eastern Creek Power Station currently under development in Sydney, NSW, Australia. The multi-million dollar project recycles waste products into green energy, building on technology currently used in Europe.
The animations were incorporated into the client’s own ‘live-action’ video aimed at informing local councils and residents of the plans. The animations continue to feature on various Australian national news networks.
Waste material not suitable for recycling is stored in a giant disused landfill.

CORPORATE VIDEO Exfoliation of vermiculite
The National Centre for Industrial Microwave Processing (NCIMP) based at Nottingham in UK, commissioned AARONS CGI to create a 3D animated corporate video of the company’s development of a prototype machine that expands Vermiculite particles ten times their original size, ideal for use in heat proofing products.
NORWOOD INDUSTRIES Printed marketing materials
AARONS CGI produced a 3D animated corporate video for Norwood Industries to introduce their exciting new website. The company manufactures printed products on both paper and advanced plastics for just about every industry – an animated folding airplane fitted the bill perfectly.
INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO Self-loan library scanner
AARONS CGI created several animations for FE Technologies for their automated self-loan station for public libraries around Australia and abroad.
SUPREME HEATING Solar/ Hydronics process
AARONS CGI produced a variety of 3D animated corporate videos for Supreme Heating to simplify the concepts behind their solar and hydronic systems to potential buyers.
Armed with clear and powerful 3D animations that visually explain every process from start to finish, Rebecca Productions was able to deliver a powerful selling tool for their client.

CATHOLIC HOMES Animated flying logo
A big part of computer animation is flying logos. AARONS CGI can take your existing logo and give it a whole new spin. Catholic Homes required their corporate logo to literally fly into the screen. Their original 2D bird design was re-created and brought to life in 3D. Contact us today and see how we can add excitement to your most important marketing asset.
GROVE HOMES Architectural presentation
AARONS CGI can also create 3D architectural renderings like this one for Grove Homes. This school building project for a government client had to be designed to exacting specifications – with realistic sunlight to foresee the effect of heat on student class rooms at the hottest time of the day in summer-time Melbourne, Australia.
CORPORATE VIDEO Chlorination process
Australian Innovative Systems needed to simplify the process of communicating a chlorination reaction when passing salt water through an electrode.

BLUNDSTONE Product training/marketing
Explaining the inner-workings of a work boot to sales executives and internet visitors might seem mundane, but with 3D animation the structure of a shoe’s sole can be seen as something fascinating. Blundstone required an exciting 3D animated corporate video of their latest sole design requiring the various components to be assembled over time.
ADVERTORIAL Soil treatment
Olsen’s Greenbio needed to show the benefits of it’s soil treatment product that contains micro-bacteria and other chemicals to help plants thrive using less water, and release more oxygen into the environment. The 3D animated corporate video advertorial was produced as a DVD to accompany a garden magazine sold at newsagents.
COURT ROOM VIDEO Accident reconstruction
The Australian Government required a forensic 3D animation to recreate the infamous Lismore train accident in country Victoria, 2006. The 3D animation was used in court and helped determine whether fog, the lack of crossing signals, or even the train’s colour played a role in the crash.
DISPLAY ANIMATION Interactive floor display
Dine at The Salmon Shop in Melbourne and you’ll be welcomed by an interactive floor display featuring 3D computer generated salmon made by AARONS CGI that cleverly interact with your movements!
PACIFIC DUNLOP Acoustic foam panels
Pacific Dunlop produces specialized acoustic foam panels designed to improve sound quality, and AARONS CGI was commissioned to create a realistic home theatre and recording studio to demonstrate its benefits.
As the primary target market was home theatre owners, an idea was devised to explain the use of the acoustic panels in simple terms – an analogy between sunlight hitting a projection screen spoiling the view, and sound echoing around a room colouring the sound.
ARBORCO Tree relocation
Perhaps our most unusual request for a 3D animated corporate video was for a tree relocation process for ARBORCO.
