Profile

Mod is a studio that specialises in realtime and virtual production. That means we produce creative storytelling and experience across platforms, including Extended Reality (XR) and games, and we use realtime technologies behind the scenes for film & TV. Mod was founded in 2010 by Michela Ledwidge and Mish Sparks and has worked with many organisations

Our name is inspired by the culture of modifying or 'modding' video games - where game developers support audiences to actively engage with their titles to create unique experiences.

We are the developers of Rack&Pin, a production management software system used in-house and licensed to third parties.

Lesly
Visitor to ACO VIRTUAL, Manly Art Gallery & Museum

"As soon as I got home this afternoon, my granddaughter was pestering me to download the ACO app on my phone. As we have a really weak phone signal in our house, she spent that next hour sitting outside in the dark using the app (with her feet tucked up under her to prevent the possums we feed from biting her toes)."
