RIO TINTO Mining operations and processes

AARONS CGI produced corporate video animations 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.

AARONS CGI produced the company’s first installment of the Mine of the Future corporate video in early 2010. The production was designed for a global audience and was in the public domain for several years targeting stakeholders, investors and the general public, and translated into multiple languages. AARONS CGI is credited with scripting, video editing, 3D animations, as well as organizing and directing voice talent. Other animated corporate video presentations were also created for specific mines like the massive Rio Tinto Bingham Canyon Mine (Kennecott Copper Mine) in Salt Lake County, Utah in the USA.

Mine of the Future corporate videoChris 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

Outotec commissioned AARONS CGI to produce a compelling 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.

THERMAL BATTERY Energy storage

Showcase your next innovation with exciting eye-catching graphics

AARONS CGI was commissioned to create an animation 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 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.”

GREEN ENERGY POWER STATION  Eastern Creek recycling

AARONS CGI created 3D animation 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 animation was incorporated into the client’s video aimed at informing local councils and residents of the plans. The animation continues to feature on various Australian national news networks.

MEDICAL Device Marketing/ Instructions for use

AARONS CGI has been commissioned by various medical device companies in Australia and abroad to create 3d animations showcasing life-saving medical devices for both instructions for use (IFU), and marketing purposes. Devices include the Bi-Flow bidirectional cannula, a breakthrough Australian invention available for surgeons worldwide; a vascular closure device designed to help close and heal the hole that is created after a cannula is inserted; plus a tool to repair the mitral valve within the heart, along with other innovations created by Cardiovascular surgeon Dr Randall Moshinsky and Anesthetist Dr Elli Tutungi.

Dr Randall Moshinsky, FRACS, Cardiothoracic Surgeon:

“Over the last few years Roger Aarons has created video animations for a number of medical projects I have been involved in. I have always found Roger a pleasure to work with and his work has been of the highest quality. Roger is very quick to pick up new technical material and his attention to detail is excellent. He has always been quick to respond to my questions and comments, and prompt in delivering content. I would be extremely happy to use Roger’s services again in the future and I would recommend him to others without hesitation.

Animations of the Bi-Flow device have been featured nationally on Australian TV news networks, as well as in medical journals. Do you have a medical device or procedure that can benefit from 3d animation? Contact us today.
