Escalation Sensation premieres on SBSOne.

Art of Multimedia is thrilled to announce the Australian Television Premiere of Escalation Sensation on Tuesday, 3 November, 3:55pm on SBSOne and OnDemand following the broadcast.

This rail heritage documentary was filmed over several months, as the world’s oldest operating wooden escalators were decommissioned at Wynyard and Town Hall Stations in Sydney.

We were proud to work with Sydney Trains & NSW Transport to capture the delicate removal and replacement process before being transported to their final resting places in artworks and an underground museum at Wynyard Station.

Featuring the perspectives of Sydney Trains staff along with historians and other experts, the film weaves an absorbing narrative about a milestone in our industrial heritage. Escalation Sensation was released with a complimentary Historical Report. Read the full production case study here

If you miss the premiere, see it OnDemand for the remainder of November.

'Escalation Sensation' reached an audience of 120,000 viewers during the broadcast on SBS.

Let’s design with meaning together.
