Conspire, create, craft.
Creature Post is a multi-disciplinary creative studio based in Auckland, New Zealand. A team of visual thinkers, image makers, vfx and experience designers who bring creative projects and unusual ideas to life. Using multiple toolsets and media platforms, we work at the intersection of entertainment, vfx, art and commerce.
Our clients include advertising agencies, brand direct, production companies, museums and galleries. We also create content for live events, and public art. Creative chameleons, compulsive collaborators, our aim is to create and craft innovative, beautiful and exciting work.
We spend work days (and some nights) in a character filled studio based in Ponsonby. We love having clients to work with us in our space, but we are equally equipped for remote work of any scale.

Creative direction & VFX
Lakshman Anandanayagam has been working in the visual arts in various capacities since 2004.
Initially trained in motion design and VFX, his areas of commercial work and artistic practise now span multiple digital and physical toolsets. He's been a Flame artist for top Auckland post houses and collaborated on international projects in Europe and Asia, honing his commercial craft. Many weekends and holidays have been spent creating light art and projection mapped content for festivals and arts projects. He's happiest when creatively problem solving and exploring storytelling through sensory experience.
Head of Motion
Patrick Killeen is our resident savant / senior motion designer. Annoyingly talented at design and animation, he looks after all things motion design and 2D / 3D. After perfecting his craft at TVNZ and Toybox, we’re lucky to have him on board wearing multiple hats for us on any given day.
Kim Baldwinson is a creative producer with over 20 years of industry experience. She started in film and TV, then moved into advertising to work at Ogilvy and DDB as a senior TV Producer. Now, with 7 years experience producing VFX and experiential projects, she has all the skills to coordinate production, post and deployment like a boss. She will turn a hand to getting any interesting project off the ground, and uses her epic producery skills to run our ship.
Pete works independently from our beautiful studio space and is a long time friend and collaborator. He is known internationally as a master of his craft. His passion for the photographic image and his attention to detail has seen him build up a large and loyal client base across all disciplines of grading – commercials, music videos, tv drama, feature and web films.
