We can create your video content strategy from scratch and continue to produce stories to feed your website, social media platforms, internal TV channel. We also provide workshops in handling the media, presentation skills and video communication.
From our early days in news…
APV was founded by news cameraman and documentary-maker, Mark Erder with reporter/journalist, Adrian Brown and one fax machine, a microphone, a camera and bits and pieces of the gear they inherited from their days as the Asia Bureau for Britain’s TV-am. Over two decades later, APV has produced stories around the globe with a particular emphasis on the Asia-Pacific. We have some stories to tell: ask to see the 80s Nokia brick phone in the office cabinet with which we reported live from Tiananmen Square in 1989; or, we can talk for hours about our role as the official Broadcast Manager for the Hong Kong Handover in 1997.
… to documentaries, broadcast events and programming
Our wealth of experience and network of tried and trusted production partners make us the regional leader in all aspects of video communications. We served for 14 years as the Asia Bureau for Nine Network Australia, represented Sky News, BBC and PBS’ Nightly Business Report in Hong Kong and helped launch CNN, Asia Wall Street Journal TV, CNBC and Fox News in this region. Our documentaries include The Last Governor ( production partner ) and Of All The Gin Joints for the BBC, Silk Air, The Emperor’s Treasure, Inside the HK Rugby Sevens for National Geographic Channel and The Double Kidnap of Teddy Wang for the Crime & Investigation Channel among others.
We also work regularly with government bodies such as the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the Hong Kong Government, the US Education Department, the US State Department, and the US Department of Commerce.
