Firestorm

Firestorm is an immersive, media-rich experience about a small Tasmanian town that was devastated by a catastrophic bushfire on January 4, 2013.

The story is focused around a series of haunting photographs that Tim Holmes took of his family as they sheltered underneath a jetty as a fire consumed their home.

Video, text, photography, audio and graphics are all integrated together. Vivid first-hand accounts drive the narrative, using compelling video interviews and text that flows over moving landscapes. Graphics provide context at key moments and soundtracks bind scenes together, producing a seamless and powerful storytelling experience.
