Australia's leading subscriber television company, Foxtel, contacted the Human Statue Bodyart agency to help create a dynamic moving Gold and Silver moving statue campaign for the Olympic Games promotions which were broadcast globally via The Comedy Channel.

The Gold and Silver statues moved when a passerby (actor) would walk towards the busking statues and throw coin at their feet!

The effect was so startling that Foxtel and The Comedy Channel decide to broadcast the television promotions internationally, and in the UK the promotion was nominated for a number of media and advertising awards.

The bodypainters and bodyartists from Human Statue Bodyart are highly experienced in working with media companies and advertising agencies, and have also done commissioned works for the likes of Shine Australia, Take40 Australia, Momentum Worldwide, Nova 96.9 FM, Disney Channel Australia, McDonalds Australia, Clemenger BBDO (Sydney), DDB, JWT, George Patterson, M&C Saatchi (NSW), HBO ('Sex In The City'), Entertainment Quarter, IDG Communications and Warner Bros. / DC Comics.

Sydney Resolution


The World's Most Spectacular New Year's Eve Party Just Got Better

Sydney Resolution Excluded From Dry Zone; Let The Champers Flow!

Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert is thrilled to let New Year’s Eve party goers know that on the back of Sydney Council’s announcement of alcohol-free zones at New Year’s Eve fireworks hot spots, Sydney Resolution will remain a licensed event – with multiple bars stocked with a full range of beer, wine and spirits – exclusively for Sydney Resolution patrons to enjoy.

Yesterday’s announcement of alcohol bans across Sydney will ensure that those seeing in the New Year around popular party locations (parks, beaches and reserves) will have to do so with water, juice and soft drinks only due to a Sydney Council dry zone decision. However, Sydney Resolution patrons will not only be able to enjoy the very best in music and premium fireworks displays, but also icy cold beers, chilled wines, spirits and flowing champagne.

Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert is Sydney’s biggest New Year’s Eve party, which will be staged at Sydney’s Glebe Island, overlooking the iconic Sydney Harbour on Saturday December 31st 2011. The inaugural Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert will feature international superstars including Jamiroquai, Culture Club and Pet Shop Boys, as well as Australia’s very own Guy Sebastian, Pseudo Echo and Lyndsey Ollard.

With unobstructed, stunning views of the city and the fireworks display, there is no better place to be on New Year’s Eve than Glebe Island. See 2011 out with a bang with some of the world’s biggest classic and contemporary artists, playing all the songs you know and love.

Sydney’s Glebe Island will turn into a ‘mini city’ for this very special event, with a custom-built venue providing the very best in entertainment and bars, an incredible on-site ‘village’ showcasing Sydney’s best local and international food, and a unique array of retail and market stalls.

Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert is the hottest ticket in town for New Year’s Eve!
Please be advised that Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert is a licensed event – all patrons must be over 18 years of age.

Glebe Island is situated under the Anzac Bridge on the beautiful Sydney Harbour. All patrons will arrive and depart by ferry or bus service from terminals and wharfs provided by Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert.

Please note there is no parking at the event. Gates open at 2pm, entertainment commences at 4:00pm and all performances will conclude by 1:45am. Gates close at 3.00am.

The Line Up...

JAMIROQUAI With more than 25 million album sales worldwide it’s fair to say that JAMIROQUAI are one of the UK’s most successful acts of any era. Fronted by the charismatic Jay Kay, JAMIROQUAI are coming down under for an electrifying live funk spectacular. JAMIROQUAI led the acid-jazz movement in the early ‘90s, later shifting to a unique mix of funk, soul and disco. Hits such as Cosmic Girl, You Give Me Something, When You Gonna Learn, Virtual Insanity, Little L and Love Foolosophy all formed the sound of a generation. With a seventh hit album, Rock Dust Light
Star, JAMIROQUAI show no sign of stopping, as they dust off their moves for an exclusive show at Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert.

CULTURE CLUB were at the forefront of the New Romantic movement, and one of the defining music acts of the 1980s. CULTURE CLUB – Boy George, Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss – had an incredible seven Top 10 hits in Australia including Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, Karma Chameleon, Church Of The Poison Mind and The War Song. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see CULTURE CLUB in all their original glory. The songs are timeless, the voice is unique and the band is still one-of-a-kind.

PET SHOP BOYS - Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe - are electronic dance-pop pioneers and one of the world’s bestselling artists. PET SHOP BOYS have sold more than 100 million records worldwide and had 17 Top 40 hits in Australia, and continue to set the charts and dance floor on fire with dance and pop classics like West End Girls, It’s A Sin, Go West, What Have I Done To Deserve This and Always On My Mind. Fans at Sydney Resolution New Year’s Eve Concert can expect a one-of-a-kind show from the PET SHOP BOYS, who are reproducing their theatrical stage performance – including the major video and dance component – that was created in 2009 at London’s O2.

GUY SEBASTIAN is undoubtedly one of Australia’s greatest singer-songwriters. His first solo single, Angels Brought Me Here, debuted at number one and was the fastest-selling Australian single in ARIA chart history. Add to this his string of awards and the fact he is the only Australian male artist in Australian music history to achieve five chart-topping singles
– including Angels Brought Me Here, All I Need Is You, Out With My Baby, Like It Like That and Who’s That Girl? – and you can see why GUY SEBASTIAN is not to be missed this New Year’s Eve.

PSEUDO ECHO pioneered the new ‘80s electro-pop sound in Australia and quickly established themselves as one of the country’s most successful and influential bands with Top 10 hits such as Listening, A Beat For You, Don’t Go, Living In A Dream and their iconic cover of Lipps Inc’s Funky Town. Since forming in 1982, the band have had album sales in excess of one million worldwide, a Top 10 single on the Billboard US pop charts and a number one single on the
Billboard US dance charts. In 2011 PSEUDO ECHO’S relentless party groove continues to resonate with musicians and fans alike, so get ready to keep groovin’ with some energy this New Year’s Eve!

LYNDSEY OLLARD is an English-born recording artist who splits her time between the Australian Northern Beaches and her UK home. Her debut album, One Night Stand, is eclectic and witty with a combination of catchy beats, haunting melodies and at times hilariously dry lyrics – from the tongue in cheek pub anthem Wasted, through to the heartbreaking tribute Too Young To Die.

Media Release: Sunday, January 23, 2011


FOXTEL today announced that Rove McManus will return to Australian television in 2011 – exclusively on FOXTEL – to host a new talk show on FOX8.

The one hour weekly program - ROVE LA - is to be filmed in Los Angeles and will be produced by Roving Enterprises. The exclusive series will premiere on FOX8 later this year.

Each week, ROVE LA will be a postcard home from the multi-Award winning comedian and filmed in front of an intimate audience in a Hollywood studio. Celebrity guests will feature, as well as field stories from Rove while he acquaints himself with the American way of life.

On his return to Australian TV, Rove said: “While it has been great to rest, recharge and get to know LA over the past 12 months, I have really missed the adrenaline rush of a TV studio and doing what I love most. I’m excited to be back, excited to be with FOXTEL and excited to be doing a show from a country that will give me plenty to share with everyone back home. Now if only I can get the exchange rate going in the right direction...”

FOXTEL Executive Director of Television, Brian Walsh, said: “It is an under-statement to say we are excited that Rove is joining FOXTEL. His passion and enthusiasm for this project is enthralling, and after a well earned break it will be great to have him back on Australian television again.”

"Every Australian television network was chasing Rove and I am delighted that he chose FOXTEL. It is an absolute vote of confidence by one of our brightest and most successful television performers that he chose FOXTEL as the future and indeed, his future.

This series will be unique. It will see Rove return to some of his comic roots and will have all the energy and spontaneity of a studio show in front of a live audience. It also promises some of Hollywood's biggest names as guest stars.

FOXTEL intends for this to be a longterm partnership. We are already planning more show ideas well into 2012. This is a landmark deal for FOXTEL," he said.
