All ready to go….
Hard to believe that Shelter Brewing has been open for a whole year. With a big venue and a big band and some seriously big vats full of beer it was always going to be a BIG party. The crew from Totally Sound were more than happy to be part of this awesome event. Southern River Band always put on a great show and Genga was there to keep the dance floor busy to the very end.
The Totally Sound team had the pleasure of working at the beautiful Voyager Estate recently for their special awards night, The Big Micks. The brief included lighting the barrel room and providing sound, staging and audio visual aspects for the awards evening. What an amazing space to hold an event.
The Barrel Room
CinesfestOZ in it’s 14th year was an amazing event to be part of. It is a busy festival, with 270 film and event options throughout Bunbury, Busselton and Margaret River.
A Diverse Range of Experiences on offer
The Festival encompasses so many facets of the Film and Entertainment industry. With everything from free community film screenings through to ‘In conversation dining experiences’ to accompany films.
There was an extensive schools program, IndigifestOZ, a Cinesnaps short film competition. There was live streaming of the event for those who could not attend. It all finishes with a big Gala Night of celebration, where the winner of the Film Prize is finally revealed.
The team were super busy..
The Totally Sound team working closely with Dean and Sharon from Lomax media were busier than ever this year. If feels like the festival grows in leaps and bounds each year and with that comes an increase in technical requirements. It is a multi venue event with it’s own unique challenges….and we love it.
The team implemented some new initiatives this year. The first of which was to use an optical fibre backbone at Orana Cinemas, simplifying the cabling infrastructure. At the Esplanade Hotel the crew used Q-Lab to automate playback, vision and lighting.
The Gala Night – Finally the winner of $100,000 Film Prize is announced.
The film prize recognisees excellence in Australian Film making, and this year’s winner was Nitram, Directed by Justin Kurzel, Written by Shaun Grant.

Did you miss Fringe this year? Here is the link to a quick wrap put together by our good friends from Lomax Media
The Southern River Band close the 2021 Bunbury Fringe Festival - great way to finish an awesome event
The Totally Sound crew worked on both the RAC Street Parade and the The Apprentice and Traineeship Company Carols. We also spent time in the lead up to the event working on a basic theme/backdrop. We built a huge metal 3D star and carefully covered it in a gold fabric with plenty of sparkle. We made gold banners, organised gorgeous read drapes and made gold tie backs and enormous presents. A little fun for the team
The Carols this year included two iconic children’s Christmas movies that could be viewed on the stage screen and a trailer screen on the grassed area in front of the bus station. The crowd seemed to really enjoy this new initiative.
The carols were the usual joyous experience, with plenty of festive colour and a great showcase of local talent. It’s always wonderful to see the crowd singing and moving along to the familiar Christmas tunes.
A celebration of all things left of centre, edgy and totally different, Fringe has quickly found it's way onto people's 'must' list in Bunbury

It is a dairy, but not as you know it! The new robotic dairy at Bannister Downs Dairy and Creamery hosted this years Dairy Innovation Day. The crew headed out to Northcliffe to work alongside Dean and the team from Lomax Media and Jess Andony and Esther Price from Western Dairy. The event showcases some of the latest innovations in the dairy business and provides an opportunity for networking.
There were a few challenges, not least of which was building AV in the middle of a working robotic rotary dairy. The conference included live crosses from various locations on the property, including drone feeds from Lomax Media. The event culminated in a Gala Dinner at the Pemberton Sports Club.
