Aviation

Working around aeroplanes, big jets and helicopters demands you have your wits about you and your public liability insurance paid up!

Filming airside is a whole other ball of wax. It's a dangerous environment. We've done a few hundred hours of helicopter aerials in our time, have completed the HUET course, own aviation-grade safety harnesses and have filmed in and around airports, here and abroad.

Locally, we have a great working relationship with Dan Egan and the team from ABC Helicopters and Garry Liehm from Brisbane Executive Helicopters. We've flown with Dan onboard the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and also on the now defunct Chopperline, which used to be owned by former Iron Man Grant Kenny. We've worked extensively with the Westpac chopper on the GC and have spent many hours chewing the fat with Peter Bird who is responsible for building the Carrara operation, which now includes POLAIR.

We've done a lot of trips between the Gold and Sunshine Coasts filming for Queensland's Surf Life Saving Association, including water rescues and all aspects of training. And it's always the pilot that flies the shot. Given our digital budgets, we're mostly hand-held, out the door, and on the skids, although we have experience with gyro mounts.

In terms of the aviation industry, it's not very often you get a chance to work on big productions. An opportunity came our way a few years ago when Airways Aviation needed a film, urgently, to win the training contract for Singapore Airlines. At that point in time, the company was midway through a Gold Coast airport rennovation and had one training plane and a few graduates available. We would have to 'mock' the whole thing up. We wrote the film, cast the students, borrowed the uniforms from the local pilot store and delivered. In time and on budget. It worked. The rest is history.

For the busy agent the all in one package is gold. One point of contact to co-ordinate manage all facets of the process with photos, videos, floorplans, editing mean that I can spend more time growing my business rather than in it. One onsite shoot to have everything completed with rapid turnaround times means that I can get to the next property. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Wow, it’s been more than 12 years now since I first met Brett and Linda Clements of PlatinumHD. My how time flies when you’re having fun, and it’s always been fun when working on sight with the PlatinumHD team. Not only do I have huge respect for their creativity and quality video production but I also admire Brett and Linda’s outstanding work ethic and enthusiasm in providing the best possible service for their clients. I’ve stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Brett Clements at 4:00am in the morning and 8:00pm at night to ensure we covered the best quality lighting to present some of the finest homes for sale on the Gold Coast. In essence Brett and Linda make me look good in the market place and this is paramount for my career as a leading Gold Coast Prestige Property sales and marketing agent. But more importantly, PlatinumHD produce high-calibre marketing videos to make the properties I sell stand out for my clients. Selling lifestyle is key and Brett certainly enhances the ‘sizzle in the steak’. Let there be another 12 years of mutually beneficial working relations. Thank you Brett and Linda (aka Pony).

I’ve worked with platinum since their inception. They know their craft. They are an asset to our firm. Gillian McGrath. McGrath Estate Agents.
I have personally been using the Gold Coast Platinum HD Teams services for over a year now from ground photography to drone videos. The team have provided a one stop shop for my listing requirements (voice overs, video, editing and still photography for internet and newspaper advertising). I have recently decided to join the leading real estate agents wanting to produce advertising videos that are out of this world, standing out from the rest. I can proudly say the Gold Coast Platinum HD team have delivered on this request and will no doubt continue creating the outstanding quality that I have now become accustom to. Thank you for being amazing! Thomas Clark
