In collaboration with Air New Zealand and PitchBlack Partners, Toybox was delighted to have the opportunity to work on the latest In-Flight Safety Video, 'Journey To Safety'. The video tells the story of a young girl who transports Mr T a lost takahe to his new home with help from Air New Zealand and the NZ Department of Conservation, all while conveying the important message that our native birds need our help and are in the grip of a biodiversity crisis.

The appearance of the takahe was thoroughly researched. The Toybox animation team visited Auckland Zoo to gather first hand reference of actual takahe feathers to exactly replicate the appearance and movements of the bird.
