Who are we?
The Film Crew grew from a simple idea - We can help
In a world where the play button is the most compelling call to action, and yet 5 second adverts come with skip buttons, purposeful, captivating and emotive content is key to getting your message across.
We are an Otago based, locally owned and operated, full-service visual content production agency offering all aspects of video and still imagery creation. We offer a straightforward, friendly and professional experience that delivers purpose-built content with strategic distribution, to ensure our clients get the most out of their investment.
In other words, our aim is to help your business kick goals.
A full-service visual content production agency - with a difference.
The Film Crew was founded by Joe Murdie, a creative thinking, whisky drinking, Swanndri wearing photographer; who needed a video made, but soon discovered that video production at the time was overly complicated, expensive and generally unattainable.
Seeing that video content was becoming a key part of standard marketing strategy, he set out to change that – and joined a new-era of agile, conscious business operators striving to create a different way of doing things in the video production industry. Passionate about video and a firm believer in its engagement power, Joe wanted more than just great video – so he developed a business model that partnered simple yet quality visual content creation with a strong strategic purpose at an affordable price to ensure the end products created by The Film Crew offered long lasting value and achieved beyond its objectives.
Joe has since then become an award-winning film maker and has grown the business to include a team of, not-just film makers, who all have the same vision for producing high quality content. We provide full end to end service from concept development, planning, resourcing, staging, shooting, to editing and distribution strategy.
What makes us different to traditional video production companies is that we care beyond the brief. We want to get to know you, what’s your why?, what are your goals, who are you talking to, where does your business want to go? Then your goals become our goals. We will be your trusted visual content partners, your go-to-guys, your video tech geek experts, your creatives. We won’t help you make visual content just for the sake of it…. But we will help you drive valuable creativity and strategy to ensure that we are creating content that has purpose.
A partner for your business.
As your trusted content partner we won’t send you off with a single “catch-all” video. We will work closely with you to produce on-brand, purpose-built content that goes beyond the expected results, and is visually gratifying; and a full set of kick-ass deliverables in the right shapes and sizes to suit your needs.
