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.

Testimonials

"From our first meeting it was clear that Michela and the team understood what we needed. They were friendly and clear in their communication, flexible in accommodating our changing needs and they produced two fantastic products on time and on budget. Having Mod lead on such a critical element, in what was an extremely busy period for ACON, put my mind at ease. I am extremely happy to recommend Michela, Mish and the team at Mod. Thank you."

"We’re having such a great response from ACO Virtual... we’re getting lots of word of mouth and people returning several times with different friends / family members. A roaring success in so many ways."

"As soon as I got home this afternoon, my granddaughter was pestering me to download the ACO app on my phone. As we have a really weak phone signal in our house, she spent that next hour sitting outside in the dark using the app (with her feet tucked up under her to prevent the possums we feed from biting her toes)."
