My career in film began with my involvement with a well known Australian Film 'Running on Empty' (Produced by the Western Australian Film Corporation), which featured my own creation, the famous 'Heroes' car, a blown 57 Chevy. This has since led to my FXI involvement in over 30 other feature films.
Television Mini Series
FXI' industry experience has been further consolidated through our involvement with some excellent Mini-Series made here in Australia, such as Butterfly Island (Series 1, 2 & 3), Spit McPhee and The Last Frontier.
Since 1980, FXI and I have also had a hand in many popular Television programs including Home & Away, A Country Practice, Sons & Daughters and Fire, as well as providing specialised effects for many other series like Mission Impossible (Series 1-19 & 22-35), Beyond 2000, Medivac, Rescue 911, Aaron's Way and Dolphin Cove.
Toyota Dyna was the first product commercial that I was involved in, and since then, have been involved in over 100 Television Commercials. Commonwealth Bank, Pepsi, Coca Cola, Shell, Cadbury, Bridgestone and numerous other companies have sought the professional advice and production services of FXI.
Live Shows & Corporate Events
The imaginative team at FXI really know how to captivate an audience. If you have a product to launch, an event needing a theme or simulation, or if you simply want an amazing Fire Works Show, we are able to recreate virtually anything you can imagine.
The Gold Coast Thunder Stunt Show, Queensland Emergencey Services, Wet n' Wild Water Park, The Australian Government and Street Machine Summer Nationals are just a few organizations who have enlisted our help for their Special events.
