Presenters

We are naturally, chemically, attracted to beautiful people. Almost every leading brand in the world is represented by an international 'Hollywood' actor, actress, performer, supermodel or sportstar.

McGrath Lower North Shore principal Dean Mackie had very firm views on using Presenters when we first started working on his account back in 2013. He was insistent on using professional talent. Coming from a broacast television backgound where Talent were staple, we agreed. Enter spokesmodel Angela Shallis. We even embedded a team, including an edit suite, in his business for two years to forge a closer, working relationship between CREW and Agents. It worked tremendously well and Angela remained the ambassador for McGrath on the Lower North Shore until July, 2018.

Many brands have taken the lead.

Using a Presenter has many advantages, the least of which is diffusing the common Vendor perception that they are paying money to build an Agent's profile. Presenters can elevate Agents through interviews, opening questions with statements like "You've set many local sales records over the years, what do you think of the home...?"

Presenters can also do things Agents could never get away with - like pick and smell a beautiful flower, or roll down a hill.

Smart Phones, the Inernet and social media has given anybody the power to "broadcast themselves." Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Many Agents are doing themselves and their brands irrepairable damage with their actions on camera. They are being filmed outside, in bright sunlight, in High Definition, wihout make-up, slumped in counches or stood up against walls. Their body language is not being directed. They're not camera ready or camera prepared.

Social Media 'Boosting' probably does more for their ego than their videos. Like it or lump it, the screen - big and small - remains a stage for Talent. The YouTubers might have blurred this line but one thing never changes: Beauty.

Why you Should use a Presenter

  • The Camera is a $ullshit detector with a nine mile radius.
  • It can smell fear. If you look nervous, you'll be seen as nervous.
  • If you "umm and ahh" and "know know" your way through a piece, the audience will perceive your delivery as ignorant.
  • If you're overweight, the camera will stack on another 10 pounds.
  • If you've had a late night, there's nothing like 4K to pick out every burst blood vessel.
  • If you are going to appear on camera, use dusting powder to take off the shine.
  • Ask your Camera Crew to use three-point lighting.
  • Go to a Drama or Presenter School.

What we do is actually a craft you might want to learn. Or, we can help straighten up your act.

GIVE YOUR PROPERTY THE SUPER STAR TREATMENT
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

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.

First class video production. David Howe. McGrath Estate Agents.
I've known of Platinum HD's work for some time through their high quality Architectural photography used for marketing prestige residential properties for sale on the Gold Coast. Recently I've had the pleasure of working with Brett and his team to photograph and video several houses that I've designed, creating stunning promotional videos for my use. His extensive background experience in TV working on both sides of the camera and in production is evident in the professional approach he takes to his work, whilst his enthusiasm and appreciation of design results in beautifully crafted presentations. I would highly recommend Platinum HD to anyone wanting slick and edgy marketing video production. John Lea. Architect.
