Congratulations to Wellington-based Transmit Creative Agency, led by director and WIFT member Sarah Hunter, which has been selected for the newly launched NZ Story Creative Collective for NZ businesses to showcase their story to global audiences.
NZ Story director Rebecca Smith said, "We're hearing an increased demand from New Zealand business owners - they want profile-raising content that will really work for them in export markets. The 'Creative Collective' answers this need by pairing businesses with video production companies who have relevant experience."
Transmit, in alliance with Cine Timore, is the only Wellington company of eight NZ companies chosen as a Pre-Qualified video production company for the Creative Collective. The selection criteria included a proven track record of creative storytelling, relevant sector experience, value for money, key personnel and location.
NZ export businesses can simply choose Transmit from the Creative Collective list on NZ Story as one way of finding a potential video production partner, and until 28 Feb businesses can apply for a co-investment payment from NZ Story of up to half the cost of this video production. A second round will be open in April-May.
Transmit specialises in creating authentic, beautiful video content for multiple platforms. From a studio on Wellington's South Coast, Transmit works with businesses, large and small, to craft quality, distinctively New Zealand content. Their diverse projects and clients include WW1 Remembered Light and Sound Show (2015 & 2016) for Wellington City Council and WW100 (Director/Creative Producer), Fat Freddy's Drop (since 1999), Le Cordon Bleu NZ, Craggy Range, Philips International and World Meteorological Organisation, as well as feature documentaries about Trinity Roots (Music Is Choice) and Fat Freddy's Drop (Based On A True Story), and created content for TV shows I Am and Fresh TV.
