My old boss, Simon Townsend, who won eight Logie awards for Australia’s best kids show Wonder World! back in the 80’s, lived by “Make em laugh. Make ‘em Cry. And make ‘em pay.” He probably learnt it from Willesee.

Flash some skin, lay it on with shock & horror, spill some blood and guts or tug on the emotional heart-strings, our content has raked up tens of millions of views for our Clients, upset the international real estate industry and made headlines around the world, and we were paid to do it. If we said no, the job would just go down the road to another production house anyway, and did on several occasions when we thought the Client's idea was in bad taste.

In working for NEO Property, we received bomb threats from feminist groups (after Binda Place) and were disowned and publicly crucified by many peer group leaders in the real estate industry, while they happily attended award ceremonies where the plunging dress code is ‘bikini’ ballroom and there’s more tits out than stars in the sky.

As somebody who understands TV classifications, most of our real estate productions would come close to winning a C classification. The rest, a mild G. The hemline of the real estate industry is very Victorian, because Agents have to be clean-skinned, have no religious leanings and no opinion. That’s what makes shocking the industry so, well, bloody easy.

So what’s the trick in getting a real estate video to go viral? We’re not talking about cats or buying tens of thousands of views off phone farms. How do you get a whole industry talking. You shock ‘em. We believe you have to polarise an audience.

Our last campaign drew on the comedic talents of Garry Who who played an old school real estate Agent called Lucy 'The King' Cutter in a webisodic series called GOLDDIGGERS. Dripping in fake costume jewellery, and skulling cans of XXXX, he played politico incorect to the hilt. GOLDDIGGERS was a teaser campaign for a subsequent recruiting drive which saw Agents being offered a $50,000 sign-on bonus, via a personalised video. The campaign worked a treat.

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.

Having had the absolute privilege of being associated with Brett & Linda Clements and the entire team at Platinum HD TV for near on 13 years. I have no hesitation in recommending the high quality service that this company provides and prides itself on. They have amazing ability to work with you as a client and have always provided a true value-add to all of the productions. Michael Vettoretto – Senior Sales Executive, Auctioneer
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.

We have worked with Brett, Pony (Linda) and the Platinum HD team since opening our Queensland offices over 3 years ago and have built such a close relationship with the team that they feel like an extension of our Sotheby's International Realty family. We work with their team for various videography and photography projects for Property, Company Branding, Social Media, Testimonials, Auction and company events and they always perform above and beyond our expectations. Video is such an integral part of our business and we have found so many changes with videography in our industry over the past few years. Platinum HD are always in sync with the changes and constantly keep our company and team current with the innovation in the delivery of their products therefore allowing us to remain at the forefront of our industry.
