I started FYI Media following the closure (after 18 years) of The Very Useful Picture Company – a video production company that I co-owned. The challenge was starting a business in a competitive market with high profile video production houses like Taylormade (Ian Taylor and Animation Research) and Natural History Unit – Fox owned.
Networking (BNI, Chamber of Commerce – FYI Media is the Otago Chamber of Commerce’s supplier of video content.) Having had 50 years in radio and video production I am able to provide advice and ‘hands on’ assistance to those that want it – ie: voice production and narration. By providing free video resources to support community and non profit organisations e.g. Chatbus – a free school counselling service for primary and intermediate schools in and around Dunedin. FYI Media is currently producing an awareness video campaign and fund raiser.
Chatbus – as above. In production is a video for the Middlemarch Museum about an historic submarine designed to mine for gold in Otago rivers. Audio and video resources for Highland Harmony – Dunedin’s only Barbershop chorus.
Employment. Knowledge/experience/advise. Video resources support including NZCAF Aerobics, many small start-up business, Otago Boys High School Young Enterprise Scheme (YES). Metro Indoor Sports facility (previous owner)
