Blue Rocket Productions produced the online component of the Logie award-winning ABC3 television show, My Place, which goes to air earlier this year.

My Place Part 2 received investment support from Screen Tasmania and Blue Rocket produced a rich interactive world for those who wanted to experience more of the show. My Place won the Logie for Most Outstanding Children’s show in 2010 and Blue Rocket also produced Part 1 of the website that featured in the launch of ABC3 in late 2009.

At the time of the website's launch in June, Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings said "The amazing new website expands the story incorporating the characters and stories that will feature in My Place Part 2 on ABC3."

"The show and website tell the stories of 26 children over 260 years, from before European settlement to 2008, all of whom have a habit of getting into some sort of trouble.
 
"Screen Tasmania invested $100,000 in the show, and the spend in Tasmania was over $280,000, representing over 90 per cent of the online budget and employing more than 15 crew.”
 
"Tasmania is building a national reputation for its quality online content creation, with the same team producing the website for another multi-million dollar television production, The Straits."

Congratulations to Blue Rocket from everyone at Screen Tasmania!
