Studio by Ad Robot


Who are we to you?

For many brands, a bespoke touch is required. That's why we created Studio, by Ad Robot. While Ad Robot's core business provides programmatic video marketing at scale, here at Studio we work directly with Brands and Agencies to create premium bespoke content, ranging from 3D Character Development, Campaign Visualisation, Augmented Reality Solutions, and much more.

The team at Ad Robot has previously been on the Story Team for The Lego Batman Movie and worked directly with acclaimed directors like George Miller (Happy Feet 2), Angelina Jolie (Unbroken), Russell Crowe (The Water Diviner) and Alex Proyas (Gods of Egypt) to solve creative and story problems for tentpole films.

In addition to this, we have worked on a number of high profile campaigns for brands like Mobil, Coca-Cola Amatil, Dropbox and others.

We now offer this same level of service to you, leveraging our AI technology, and good old creative ingenuity in order to bring your brand to the front of the stage.

Dropbox Connect

Working with the creative team at Dropbox was an absolute pleasure for us, as we got to share their creative vision and work with their brand guidelines, converting them into intelligent video assets that could be updated to accommodate any copy, any duration and voiceover, output to any format, and all within minutes.

Lego in VR

Our obsessions with Lego began after spending the better part of 4 years in the Story Department of The Lego Movie series, storyboarding, previsualising and developing narrative.

This led to Ad Robot Studios presenting a fully immersive VR Sandbox game called "Bleep Blocks" to key Lego Company executives. All blocks. Build anything. It's a hell of a lot of fun!


Ad Robot Studios sit at an interesting intersection between Advertising, Mixed Reality and Filmmaking. As a result, we find ourselves solving problems in very novel ways.

From this we developed our proprietary AR Handoff technology, allowing large scale tracking and mapping for interior and exterior locations.

Oh, and we should mention, it's a lot of fun! 

Mobil China - Previsualisation

Ad Robot's Lachlan Phillips was tasked by Fin Design with turning the concept of a robotic Cheetah, into a well oiled (literally) vehicle motor.

We developed the camera language and editing language to deliver this concept, providing previsualised shots, techvis assets and an edit from which the animators could build the final assets.

Chester Notes

Ad Robot decided to do a little marketing of our own. We developed our own Chester Mascot, designing and bringing him to life in house.

The really interesting part here however is how we utilise Ad Robot's AI Video technology. We can actually update what Chester is saying in close to real time, allowing us to deploy new pieces of Hollywood quality 3D animation at scale - sending unique messages to prospects, or updating content for social media ever day.

It's a Robot Revolution!


Toyworld is a beloved brand the world over, so when we were asked to design a new Mascot for Mr Toy's Toyworld, we were excited!

Meet Elfy. Starting out as a concept sketch done in house, Elfy has been developed into a fully fledged celebrity, being used year after year.

Rent The Roo

We love it when we can flex Australian style. Upgrading Rent The Roo's decades old cartoon kangaroo into a modern, dynamic character was a pleasure.

From concept to delivery, Ad Robot Studios gave this job the attention it deserved.

"We don't have clients, we have partners. Let's grow your business together!"
