Sunshine Coast Airport worked closely with Source Media not only on our complete corporate video production, but a strategic approach to a range of digital media targeting both business-to-business and consumer markets, with strong consideration for an increased presence on social media sites focusing around YouTube. Their ability to meet our strict deadline was achieved to perfection with ‘time to spare’, working under challenging weather conditions and offering a flexible approach to scheduling. The budget and quotation process was clearly defined in the outset and communication was excellent during the planning and production process. We are extremely happy with the results, fluent processes and level of service delivered. I am pleased to endorse Source Media – and recommend them to successfully manage any media project.
