Philosophy & Competitive Advantages

FINCH’s transmedia work The Great Crusade was nominated for a 2012 International Emmy for Digital Fiction, and won Gold at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festial and Spikes Asia. FINCH's documentary about Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe’s failed bid for the London Olympics premiered on the ABC to rave reviews, and was directed by Gregor Jordan (Ned Kelly, Two Hands). FINCH also created and launched the Open Road Film Festival with 303Lowe, and sponsored by Harley-Davidson, Canon and Audio Network International.

Most recently, FINCH has developed a system called 37Degrees [patent pending] that allows cinema patrons to experience different sides of a narrative in a whole new way. The technology was launched with a short film that premiered in limited release before THE AVENGERS — the most successful film opening ever. NCM, who control 60% of American cinema screens, have taken an exclusive license for the territory, and additonal licences are underway for Europe, Asia and South America.
