Get Reel is a collection of Western Australian digital content that covers a wide spectrum - from animation to ads, from 3D fly-throughs to games development, from engineering to education, from virtual safety training to visual FX for film and television.

We're aiming to show you the variety of work being done, the rich diversity of jobs and the international opportunities that skills in digital content development can open up.

Some WA animators and 3D modellers are among the best in the world – see what they’re working on to give you an idea of the jobs that are available here and overseas for those with the talent and commitment to pioneer in these new fields.

Some of the companies, organisations and individuals whose work is showcased include:

Daytime weekday screenings will be targeted mainly to schools, with weekend screenings for everyone else. Reel will run 60 - 90minutes, depending on content received. Discounts for students, members of participating organisations and group bookings.
