ABOUT HUGH WHITEHOUSE
ProduceR | DIRECTOR | EDITOR | NICE GUY
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.
Nowadays you'll find me doing the corporate thing at Data#3 Ltd where I work with clients across Education, Government, and the private sector to produce digital video content and corporate communications.
Alternately you might see me in-and-around the startup scene here in Brisbane; working with startups, Government and the ecosystem at large to help tell and promote startup stories. I 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.
Creating content internally is not always easy.
Sometimes you need a little outside help.
On Brand | On time | On Budget - Every time
Are you launching a new product and want to do a series of User benefit interviews? Has your business grown substantially and now you need to do some corporate re-positioning to engage a different market? Are you committing to an uplift training program and need to create visual assets to help educate your staff? I love helping businesses of all shapes and sizes to tell their stories.
I produce corporate content for my clients with same enthusiasm and energy that I bring to any other shoot. I can work in consultation with your existing marketing team to create content that is so on-brand it looks like you made it yourself. And i've worked in marketing too. I understand that you need more than just one video. I can provide you with deliverables for TV, cinema, web, or social media as required with no surprise, hidden costs. I want your content to be seen by as many people as you do... Learn More
Different Types of content I can produce for you:
External stakeholder announcements,
Product or service adverts (TV, Web, Social),
Internal communications for larger organisations,
User review and product overviews,
End user training or education videos,
and much, much more.
Do you want outstanding photo & video coverage for your event?
I’m the person to call.
EVENTS OF ALL
SHAPES, SIZES, & BUDGETS
Demo Days | Conference Coverage | Stakeholder Events | Childbirth
In my experience, event videos usually fall into some combination of two different archetypes:
You have your video content produced for immediate engagement (like live-streaming from the event or creating photo streams to social media throughout the event);
and you have event video content produced for documentation and legacy engagement (like summary videos, participant interviews, stakeholder benefit summaries etc).
Lucky for you, I have a vast experience producing both – often at the same time - for events of all shapes and sizes.
From multi-camera conference video where the images captured are simultaneously beamed to an LED screen; to intimate interview pieces where we talk about the benefits of the event with key stakeholders or participants, I have the skills and the knowledge to provide you with the best bang for your buck when it comes to video deliverables for your event...

TELLING STORIES, BIG AND SMALL
Above and beyond everything else I do, producing documentary content
is my favourite flavour of filmmaking.
You know how everyone has that one part of their job they absolutely love doing? For me that’s producing documentary content.
I love sitting down with people, interviewing them, learning from their experiences, shooting b-roll to visualise their narrative - all that good stuff. If you look at the tone and structure of the corporate content or event videos I produce, you can actually see elements of my love for documentary enriching that content too.
At any given time, I usually have about three or four short-form documentary projects at various stages of development. You know how some people work a lot then go on holiday? I’m like that… But instead of going on holiday, I make documentaries. Much to the chagrin of my Wife.
Across 2016/2017 I produced a 22-episode series on startups in Queensland called “#Ventured”. The State Library loved it so much they’re adding it to their archives in the Modern Queensland collection. I create this stuff primarily on a pro-bono basis because they’re stories that I believe need to be told – not just for now, but as a snapshot of what we were doing at a tremendous moment in our state’s history.
I do take commissions for documentary too. So if you know of a great story that deserves to be told, drop me a line and let’s talk.
