The Situation

Harness Racing Victoria run an Annual Awards Night, for the horses, trainers and drivers at the end of the spring racing season. Our sister company, Woohah Productions, has provided audio, visual and lighting production for the event in previous years.

The Brief

HRV had used a third party media agency in the past for their video packages. Whilst they were generally happy with the quality of the product, they were looking for improvement in two key areas from us; design, and integration with the Woohah production team.


We created a proof-of-concept by repurposing pre-existing templates to suit the brief. Suitably impressed by our effort, HRV then provided a deluge of voiceovers, race highlights, scripts, run sheets and anecdotes. Our main challenge was keeping all that information catalogued and organized until all winners and nominees were finalized.

Using voice overs provided by the client, and footage from the past season of racing, we assembled the packages announcing the nominees and winners for each respective event. Challenges in this process included decoding broadcast quality footage for web specifications, as well as very tight turnaround period.

The Debrief

The patrons and organisers were thrilled with the effort that the whole team put in, noting how modern the event had become, video packages included. The client was particularly happy with us for the long hours and patience invested in the project.
