Welcome to our new site

Welcome to our new site and the online film-making business we’ve wanted to launch for years. Decades actually. What do they say about ‘overnight success’? It doesn’t happen overnight. There’s no doubt we’re an acquired taste in online video. We pack our own technology – showcache.io – and we’ve very firm views about how a […]

Mishy Canning

Something unusual in the world of agent profiles. An agent who didn’t want to be on camera. All Mishy Canning wanted to do was re-create an old story, and share it. So that’s what we  did. Model Allira Cohrs played Mishy, in her first dramatic outing, and actor Vince Gorce played the home-owner, who was […]

IVY & EVE – And The GH5

This project marked the first time we fired Panasonic’s GH5 in anger. 4k at 60 frames per-second. The in-camera stabilisation is AMAZING and even with a Metabones Speedbooster to strap on Canon’s super fast EOS 35mm, focus was sharp. We’re ordering in a LUMIX 12-35 which also comes with gimbals on the censor. This technology […]

The Game Changer

In June, we sold our RED Epic W 8K cinema camera and all accessories. After more than seven years in the RED ecosystem – and about $250,000 in kit, including numerous sensor upgrades to stay current – we just decided it was time. I’d never shot a bad picture with a RED camera. What I […]

Queen Street. The Palladium. Stage 1 Of An 8 Year Project

It is one of the most fun and joyful parts of my role, to provide a glowing testimonial on my personal and professional relationship at working with Brett, Linda and the entire crew at PlatinumHD. Brett is nothing but a creative genius, with the commitment and dedication that transcends even the concept of going ‘over […]

A Walk On The WILD Side

When Brisbane Buyer’s Agent John Leighton approached platinumHD, he wanted a web site that could not only handle a lot of rich media but one designed around big, bold ‘statement’ photography. I don’t know where the idea came from but I suggested “…how about we film you sitting with a Bengal Tiger.” John rolled up […]

Launched. Propvid 2.0 – Capture Life’s Moments

We started life as propvid. In Sydney. Back in 2003 – 2004. Well. Actually our production house was called ‘Smashpop’ but everybody thought we were a rock band, so we had to bring in marketing whiz Barney McGrath to set us straight. “You shoot property video. How about Propvid.” Made a lot of sense. After […]

A Profile On Agent Troy Dowker

We’ve worked with Troy since 2006. Like most leading Agents, he knows exactly what he wants and will not settle for second best. When it came to shooting his profile, the brief called for multiple locations, across a couple of months, from auction coverage to testimonials, but it was a healthy $7,500 budget for an […]

Kollosche Smashes Another Record Price

All good things come to those who wait. Agent-to-the-stars Michael Kollosche has negotiated the Gold Coast’s highest price for a Gold Coast penthouse, fetching $9.5 million for property developer Ron Bakir‘s masterpiece. The Gold Coast Bulletin reports: It was originally put on the market at $12.5 million in 2016, with the price later cut to […]

Selling A Vacant Block Of Land

Land sales have historically been slow within our industry, with days on the market often rolling into months and sometimes years. I sold this beautiful block for $25,000 over valuation and in 35 days…and in a suburb that hardly anyone on the Gold Coast even knows exists! I had an overwhelming amount of response via […]
