About Robot Army, film production Melbourne & Geelong
We were the kids in school looking out the window, wondering what we’d do if aliens invaded, or who’d win a fight between Luke Skywalker and Batman.
Where once we were told to stop daydreaming, to fit the mold, to grow up. We managed to build a company that is based around doing the opposite.
We’ve been creative since we could form thoughts and pride ourselves on our ability to see life like others can’t. Always unique, always standing out, it’s even landed us on the news a few times!
For us, it all starts with the message, it has to be authentic, it has to be real. The delivery can be as exaggerated and out of this world as ever, but at its core, it must be genuine. No sales gibberish, no tricks, no bullshit.
