FINCH launches brand new technology and innovation venture company 'NAKATOMI'

Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 9.38.01 am.jpgFINCH has set up the new innovation, venture and post-production driven company called NAKATOMI.

Since founding in 2011, the technology department has been fundamental to FINCH's offering, but after 7 years, and working in a rapidly changing industry. It's time for NAKATOMI to forge its own path.
Based on the ethos of constant evolution, NAKATOMI will be expanding on its technology and post-production offerings to drive innovation in applied and interactive tech through machine learning specialists, Unreal developers, VFX and concept artists, and mechatronic and software engineers. Drawing on skills from storytelling, filmmaking and engineering, NAKATOMI will develop its own experiences, products and services that exist at the cutting edge of technology .

The company was the tech partner behind the D&AD Black Pencil winning 'Most Powerful Arm', MONA 'Moo Brew Roulette', Australian Defence Force's VR 'Category 5' game, the Kraken VR game, and the Steve Waugh Foundation 'Riderless Bike', as well as VFX work for such brands as MLA, BP, WorkSafe, IKEA and Red Cross. NAKATOMI will be headed up by Managing Director Emad Tahtouh, Creative Director Andy Timms, and Executive Producer Kent Boswell.

FINCH will continue to focus on advertising and entertainment, as well as pioneering groundbreaking innovations such as CREATABLE (a STEM education syllabus for high school girls) and The Lion's Share (a partnership with the United Nations, where animals earn money for their image usage rights to protect their habitat and welfare).
