We've been able to reach media far and wide with the fantastic video and I can't thank the team at Undersea Productions enough.

A non-profit environmental organisation for coral reef conservation.

THE BRIEF

Create a 30-second community service announcement (CSA) to air on Brisbane’s commuter ferry, among other places. The CSA’s purpose was to let the people of southeast Queensland notice what amazing marine life lives at their doorstep. It also needed to highlight the reef monitoring work done by Reef Check Australia. The piece had to convey its message even if audio was switched off.

  • titles
  • motion graphics
  • music selection

Undersea Productions helped us to create a fabulous community service announcement showcasing the marine life of Moreton Bay and the work of our dedicated volunteer divers. Despite the 30 second time limit on the feature, Josh and Liz managed to put together the perfect images and tone to deliver our message. Throughout the entire process, Josh and Liz were conscious of our vision and provided professional advice to help shape it into something even better!

I commissioned Undersea Productions, on short notice, to make a promotional film for the Tonga Visitors Bureau. The resulting short film is spectacular – it perfectly captures the essence of Tongan life and the tourist experience there. And it was completed on budget, on time, and required no revisions. The TVB has used it at many of their international trade shows and the piece continues to be a valuable asset for Tongan tourism.
