Viral Videos

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.

Brett Clements and his crew at platinum were responsible for filming my last fight at Melbourne’s Hisense arena late 2012 for a documentary I plan to release. They also filmed the lead up training camp, including the final press conference and the weigh in the day before the fight. This was a world title fight and at times was a pressure cooker of an environment, with patience and personalities tested to the maximum, and Brett and his crew not once were a distraction, contrary to that, they blended in with us so seamlessly it was if they were part of the team! They also flew to Perth a month after the bout to film more interviews for the Doco. Brett and the team were always very professional and accommodating to our requests/requirements, and Brett's filming and creativity were matched only by his passion and enthusiasm. Brett has a gift of capturing 'the moment' and putting it on screen. I can vouch for these guys if you are proposing to hire them for a gig. World Champion Danny Green

Brett and the team at Platinum did some corporate videos for us [Condev Construction] on our culture and the business. They were amazing to deal with and the quality of production was outstanding. Nothing was too hard for Brett and the team. We are very impressed with the end product. Glenn Cream. General Manager.
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).
