The Mo State Backs Up For Movember

Monday, November 2nd, 2009


David Boon: Mo Hero

There’s no doubt which state leads Australia in moustache production. That would be Tasmania.

While other states dropped the mo for a couple of decades, or only resurrected them for ironic purposes, great Tasmanians like David Boon and David Foster scaled the heights of achievement while sporting classic handlebar facial growth.


David Foster: Mo Hero

Inspired by these mighty Tasmanian heroes, the team from Scene Change Tasmania are stepping up for their second run at Movember. Last year’s efforts raised an impressive sum of money toward important yet often ignored men’s health issues such as depression and prostate cancer.

Movember was started in Australia in 2003, and has since spread across the world, a testament to the global appeal of the mo.

Now it’s your chance to support the intrepid team of Gareth Percey, Rod Street, Ben Coombe, Damien Free, Dean Vervaart, Ben Wallace, Paul Davies, Josh Warwick and Matt Walker.

Sign up as a donor here and watch their mo’s unfold during the course of the month.

A big thank you to the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, who have given us permission to look like pool cleaners around the hotel for the month.

PS. Our clients can be assured it won’t go quite this far (pic via @cyantaeed):


Scene Change: Very Good News

Thursday, June 25th, 2009


Scene Change Hobart, birthplace of the 2007 AV Revolucion, is thrilled to announce that we’ve been appointed in-house AV supplier to Tasmania’s premier conference venue, the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart.


All of our Hobart guys have spent a lot of time working in the Grand Chancellor over the years, and are really excited about working with the hotel team. After all, quite a few Grand Chancellor people have been big fans of our corporate mascot Larry, and have signed posters of him on their desks.

Grand Chancellor Hobart General Manager Ralph Freckelton said “The choice was easy, we’ve worked with the Scene Change team many times and they always do a great job.  We’re very excited that this partnership we will bring our clients a fantastic AV offering with some new state of the art installations happening soon.”

Here he is with our own Rod Street on the left. We still prefer Rod with his Photoshopped Che hair and beret, but from now on he’ll save that for fancy dress occasions.
