Poker

Location. Location. Location. And an idea to market this apartment in Newstead. All necessary ingredients if you want to make a ‘film’ instead of a video. For this piece, we smoked it up and filmed a poker game in a Brisbane bar in Fortitude Valley. Why? Because the Buyer for the property would more than […]

The Garland – Rainbow Bay

Marketed exclusively by John Mayer & Nicole Palmer from Ray White Mermaid Beach, The Garland means much more than just one of the new North-Facing towers, overlooking Rainbow Bay Beach and Snapper Rocks. It was a holiday home to returning Australian servicemen and women, recovering from the brutalities of war. For the campaign, we filmed a […]

NOTORIOUS – 24 Paradise Island

notorious….widely and unfavourably known Using a model convicted of cocaine trafficking in a film called NOTORIOUS was always going to bring the house down. But who doesn’t deserve a second chance? Everybody knew what we were doing but when the #hit hit the fan, we were left holding the bag. I commented: “I think it’s […]

A Day In The Life -Cobden & Hayson

Mathew Cobden wanted us to capture a day in the life of his inner-West agency, Cobden & Hayson. So, we travelled to the other side of Sydney Harbour, strapped on a 1,600 mm zoom lens – and shot back on Balmain. This is one way to bank a lot of establishing wide shots of an […]

Desiderata – Experimental Film-making For Real Estate

Desiderata. Latin: “desired things” – a 1927 prose poem by American writer Max Ehrmann (1872-1945) OK. It may be a little deep. But at platinumHD Propvid, we’re always striving to make more of a film about a property than just a video on it. I wanted to go for a colder look. We also brought […]

R.I.P Print

Print diagnosis in Australia now TERMINAL. Get your affairs in order. Long live The Internet. We started this business back in Sydney more than 8 years ago, treading the streets of posh Double Bay with a borrowed Sony PDX10 and a shopping trolly as a CREW car. Back then, only one or two Agents believed […]
