You may have heard of it, a little production company called United Artists.
At Pickford we are endlessly inspired by successful and strong women throughout history.
We can see ourselves in the Malalas, Mayas, Fridas, Rosies, Bettys and Beyonces of the world.
We love watching stories, reading stories, listening to stories, filming stories, recording stories and making stories.
Everyone has a story: every human, business, co-orporation and group.
We want to hear your story for ourselves (we're a little bit self indulgent that way..!), but most importantly we want you to get your story told, in the best way possible, to the best audience for you.
We offer a range of video, audio and digital media services, from pre-production, through to podcast and video production, post-production and video editing, and video marketing, video distribution and video analytics.
A successful video marketing campaign begins with a well thought out video strategy.
A video content plan can help consolidate ideas, and give you a game plan on getting those ideas into action.
We will assess where you currently are in the market, and work out ways to get where you want to be, covering aspects like your business goals, values, demographics, and measurable metrics.
Our video production service is completely comprehensive, from planning to filming and sound recording, to post-production including video editing, colour correction, sound editing and music production.
We have worked on all kinds of video projects from event coverage, tv commercials and documentaries, to community television and social media content.
We offer broadcast-ready TVCs, advertorials, web content, social media and YouTube marketing and management, corporate videos, training videos, TV pilots - if you can dream it, we can film it.
Our podcasting service is the only one of its kind in Melbourne.
We include combinations of podcast preproduction and planning, podcast recording, post-production and audio editing, podcast distribution and podcast analytics to create your professional podcast depending on your needs.
For our podcasts and audiobooks, we come to you with our broadcast quality microphones for a superior audio product in the comfort of your own home or office.
If you are all over video content and know the benefits of video in your marketing strategy, you might have already filmed some content.
The filming went great!
But the video editing...
You don't have time, you hate the video editing process, or maybe you enjoyed the video editing process but simply do not have time to learn the ins and outs (and after 8 hours working on it, your attempt at editing didn't even come out that great...)!
We also offer a stand-alone video editing service to let you focus on spending time creating valuable content, and not stressing about jump cuts and graphics.
It's after all the planning and strategising, producing and video editing that the magic of successful video content really happens, and it is also the part of the journey that most entrepreneurs get wrong.
You need to know what video metrics you need to track, how, when and where to upload you video, and how to make sure you're utilising all the best video SEO practices you can.
What we absolutely don't want is you spending thousands of dollars on video content that barely anyone sees or engages with, when that video could be a great way for you to find clients, provide value and build your brand.
