We have a long association with Crayola and have both made television commercials from scratch and also repurposed many US based commercials. Sometimes it’s a simple end graphic, other times a new voiceover and soundtrack has to be created. Some go to television, others to cinema.
We do all the liaison with CAD to ensure your commercials are good to go to air, then shoot them off for broadcast digitally.
Here’s a sampling of some we have worked on.
Working with Fresh Eyes Worldwide, Image Control created this conference opener for the University of Queensland’s Global Change Institute who were presenting to scientists, politicians and peers in the United States.
This is an example of a TV commercial where we worked with PLOT Media who were our client. Our involvement was to shoot the video for the opener and stills for the grass trimmer which they then animated.
As with the other Connect Hearing ad the vision and main talent were supplied as a 45 second TV commercial from the US. I did the voiceover for the tags.
This and another television commercial were done for Evergreen. All the live footage was supplied from the US version of the ad and our job was to recut a 45 to a 30 second ad. Phil rewrote the script and I did the voiceover for the tag.
This ad was created for Evergreen Advertising in 2009 from supplied still images.
Apologies for the small file, but I have included it as an example of voice work I have done.
Last November, a couple of days before the Temora Aviation Museum’s Warbirds Downunder airshow I was offered a spot in the back of the HARS Caribou to shoot some museum aircraft.
The first image was taken by Rob Fox and gives a good idea of the space we had for the shoot. You can see my hand and the camera on the left of frame. The camera is the Sony F3 with a hired lens and a Tyler gyro underneath. The gyro and it’s batteries (carried in a backpack) were quite heavy, the total weight of the kit was around 25 kilos.
We had to ensure our pockets were empty so nothing could go out the back to FOD the following aircraft. I had hearing protection in the form of a couple of expanding earbuds, one of which was lost overboard almost immediately. I had no glasses so had to squint at the screen on the camera to focus. The wind from the open doors was buffeting and the noisiest environment I have ever encountered.
However, as the stills from the video show, the view which was limited by the framing of the Caribou was absolutely spectacular.

Doug Hamilton flew both the Boomerang and Hudson. We were airborne well over an hour, orbiting to the west of Temora.
Fitted For Work is a not for profit organisation dedicated to assisting women experiencing disadvantage attain financial independence through getting work and keeping it.
We were asked to make a video for a crowd funding campaign which helped them greatly exceed their funding target.
We worked with Tourism Snowy Mountains to create promotional and advertising material, including still photography for posters, a range of videos and a series of television commercials.
Here’s a promotional video covering the Snowy Mountains area. We shot most of the footage but there is also some supplied material.
We now have our own portfolio page on Vimeo where you can see a range of our work, with more videos being added all the time.
