Gooseboy Productions is a full service television & video content production house. We have over 30 years experience in news, current affairs, corporate & training materials, lifestyle, factual, children’s, multi-camera live OBs and predominantly advertising & documentaries. We can take projects from concept through to delivery for broadcast, web and DCP cinema files. We run a powerful full 4K edit suite with ample redundancy and capacity. We have a broad range of post skills including grading in DaVinci, extensive After Effects skills and audio mixing.
The Gooseboy team moved to the south Coast 13 years ago. My career started as a commercial & advertising photographer and graphic artist. We still undertake photography and design projects, mainly for clients away from the South Coast. When away from the South Coast I work under my own name.
Known formerly as Image Solutions of Melbourne, a fully accredited, full service, advertising agency & production house. We continue to provide film, photography, graphic design, marketing and advertising services. Making more than 50 projects a years for the last 5 years means we understand delivery, time frames and budgets all whilst remaining true to a creative and commercial brief. I consciously moved out of my previous business to get back to what I love, making great images that tell compelling stories, being a freelance lighting cameraman/DOP & editor is what makes me happy.
We have serviced broad range of clients across many countries, including Myer, Clemengers, AMP, Channel 2, 9 & 7, Sportsgirl, MCG, Hewlett Packard, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, London Underground Authority, Foster’s Group, Linfox, Hilton Hotels, Qantas, BHP, Amcor, ANZ, EPA, NAB, WWF, Army, Warner Bros, Victorian Tourism, Tourism Australia, Ford, Mitsubishi, Boral, Holden, Brown Brothers, AAP, VW, BMW, Tip Top, Gillete, Email, Bega Cheese & a broad range of State & Federal Government Departments and Statutory bodies.
Living remote from hire services means we own our own kit, additionally I am maniacal about reliability and equipment care & testing. A shoot in a remote location will not fall over if one item fails as we always have redundancy. The second half of 2015 will see us invest in additional high end 4K gear and lenses for a particular job.
