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.

Stephen Champion
Centre Manager, Bathurst Entertainment Centre

"The various displays, in particular the 'voice' room, posed many questions in my mind, which is always a positive indicator. It is good to think about how we contribute to social and political views in a rapidly changing environment. No clear answer! But at least it has me thinking..."
