AFL | Digital Stadium Graphics | Events

Yes Captain was commissioned by the AFL to create animated, digital signage & fan engagement for 5 clubs in just 30 days. The creative output was massive – equalling over 1 kilometre of digital signage, across two seating levels, at three of Australia’s biggest sporting stadiums, Etihad Stadium, the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Simonds Stadium.

Employing a range of techniques, including traditional hand drawn animation, 3D character animation, motion graphics, and 3D elements, Yes Captain brought to life pre-game excitement, key in-game moments, plus a swag of team mascots including a running and barking Bulldog, a flying Captain Carlton, a boxing Kangaroo, and a screeching Geelong Cat. A total of 1200 videos were delivered and at over 47,000 pixels in width, is the largest digital screen content in Australia.
