Our approach and focus

Through live experiences, broadcasts and linear production, StartWell offers an integrated approach to sharing stories which brings professional equipment, studio spaces and filmmakers under one roof.

Because we own our equipment, run our own purpose-built studio facilities and employ a full time team of professional media producers, we can develop high end content with speed and agility, empowering any organisational need – from investor relations to internal communications to marketing.

Our end-to-end production model is perfect for these specific types of content:

  • Roundtables – Get multiple people around a single table; we capture all the action with a combination of angles to reveal personality and expression throughout.
  • Podcasts – Our purpose built podcast studio is micro-soundstage for industry-leading audio quality, with multiple camera angles that can bring up to 5 people on camera together.
  • Panel Discussions – Host discussions with a group of experts in front of a live studio audience (of up to 100 people!)
  • Interviews and Fireside Chats – Conduct one-on-one interviews capturing each side of the table or with a variety of seating formats (just for camera or a live audience.)
  • Keynotes / Presentations – Present content to camera using multiple custom setups; we can handle TV studio broadcast style or large-venue conference style (with massive floor to ceiling projections behind your speaker (and an optional in-room audience of up to 100 people.)
  • Direct-to-Camera pieces – Whether in studio or using our selection of meeting rooms as locations, we shoot compelling addresses to camera using controlled environments as well as natural lighting.
  • Software walk-throughs – Take sales prospects and customers through your product with a high quality recording of on-screen movements through software cut against multiple camera angles, with top tier lighting and audio to clearly communicate.
