ABOUT HUGH WHITEHOUSE

ProduceR | DIRECTOR | EDITOR | NICE GUY

 

I shot my first documentary at the age of 11 with a hand-me-down 8mm camera. It was about the different mailboxes in our street and ended with me getting bitten by a dog. So let say it gathered 'mixed reviews'. 

I’ve been producing content for the past 20 years across a range of broadcast and online environments. I’ve made everything from sketch comedy, to documentary series, to corporate communications and training videos. Really, I just like making interesting stuff. 

For a while I worked as the Director of Applications and Technology for The Media Architects. Under my direction, our little startup developed cutting edge, multi-platform digital distribution solutions for some of the Asia Pacific region's leading film festivals. It was pretty cool while it lasted.

Nowadays you'll find me doing the corporate thing at Data#3 Ltd. I work with clients across Education, Government, and the private sector to produce digital content and multi-medium assets focussed on business productivity, education, product marketing and corporate communications.

In my spare time, you'll often see me lurking around the startup scene here in Brisbane. Probably because I'm a bit of a gear-head but also because I produce a doco series on startups called, "#Ventured". I do offer my services (consulting, production, general handsomeness) to general businesses via my partnership with Lestrade Digital. So if you've got something you'd like to produce - or simply want to have a chat - feel free to get in touch.

 

 

PROJECTS

CONSULT | CREATE | COLLABORATE

 

I have a background in Broadcast Engineering, Journalism & Digital Production. This unique skill set allows me to produce content tailored to a specific audience - for a specific purpose - while also being able to advise on a specific means of delivery.

That's just a fancy way of saying, "I can create something for you and show you the best way to get it seen by the audience you want - whether public or private."

Samples of some recent projects I've managed &/or produced are listed below. In many of these I acted as the primary client liaison as well as guy in the trenches getting it done. This is because I like to develop a collaborative working relationship with my clients. It ensures I can deliver stuff successfully and provides you with an exceptional outcome. Plus, I like meeting and working with new people.
