You need a flaming schooner scuppered, sunk and raised from a watery grave in Botany Bay? No problem. ATMs just not Mardi Gras enough? We will bejewel them. The main streets of Broome too in the present? Let us transform them into a 1950s set, complete with tonnes of blood-red pindan and an authentic tin hotel…


Construction (sets and props)

With over 25 years experience in the industry, and as part of the construction team/ construction manager for major films and TV shows (Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith; Farscape IV; My Kitchen Rules; Bran Nue Dae; The Circuit; Sleek Geeks; Love My Way), and with a strong focus on art-based TVCs and new media promotion (ANZ GAYTMs; Cloud 9 Frozen in the Clouds; Strap a Motor to it/ Ice Break drag race), Alien Proof Construction prides itself on being able to build anything, from Shakespeare to spaceships. Literally.

Vehicle customisation

We love nothing more than getting our teeth into a vehicle mutation, from kitting out classic muscle cars for a guitar solo vs drum solo drag race for Ice Break coffee, to a dancefloor cantina used to promote Miller Chill and a four-ton camping truck called Black Mary. And our erstwhile leader is the pit-chief and engineer for an all-girl racing team, converting Aussie beauties into stylized apocalyptic racing machines that face-off in the dirt once a year, in a location known only to a few…
