Dan wanted to be a dolphin trainer when he was a kid but now his parents don’t even know what he does for a living.
“I have flashbacks trying to explain to my parents what I do. They are still not sure.”
But we know what he does, and while his talents are a big loss for the odontocetes order of small cetaceans, you will be glad he turned his back on those long-nosed fish murderers.
Dan is an accomplished EP & Agent from the UK and is girt by international production and has strong industry contacts across APAC, EMEA and North America.
He’s experienced in stills, live action, illustration, digital art and mixed media projects; from ideas to development and pitch, art buying, client, supplier and studio management, through to full integrated production.
Dan works bloody hard: he’s a solutioner, driven and determined and serious but relaxed, with a commercial and collaborative approach.
“I am a collaborator. I love that. I love that my days are never going to be the same and I wake up at stupid o’clock to map them out. Our world is definitely a roller coaster but we have to experience the bad to really appreciate the good times, that's for sure.”
Anetta, is the tough Polish chick, commander of a droll sense of humour, rouseabout type, with a mug on her desk that says “I’m always right”.
An all knowing, all seeing, all hearing, seer of seers, sometime human extension cord, and implementer, and executor of big ideas.
If our General Manager had a wrestling name it would be The Rock (Sorry Dwayne Johnson but you have nothing on Anetta - and The Glue sounds weird and more than a touch creepy/illegal).
She has a background in broadcast production, is a paragon of organisation, has a devotion to detail, and is smarter than you can poke a stick at.
Anetta told her mum she was going to Australia for six months but she fell into a long term relationship ... with FLIPP.
Her role has grown, as we have grown. She has a big heart.
It’s better than any rubbish Jedi mind trick.
Haydon moved to Sydney, with boots, from the Brahman infested Gulf Country, from the cows to the city sheeple, to study sound engineering.
But through working on music videos he changed dance partners; it was the visual that seduced him.
“Through an accident I fell in love with visual imagery and video and photography, and how it shapes the identity of something, whether it be music, a person, a book, a product, it can be anything.
“And now here I am. I’m doing something I love doing, I’m not going to get bored.”
Haydon, who’s as wise as a walrus, said every new brief raises the question, the demand, of how to make that happen. It’s the problem solving, sorting through solutions, and the creativity in that, that draws his water.
While he doesn’t go around treating everything as a western film, he is drawn to the idea of applying the simple, honest way of reasoning.
That bucolic balance, understanding; the way he was raised.
But he’s not bound by one way of doing things, and inoculates work with energy and enthusiasm.
“Everything has a solution, nothing is the end of the world. All you need is a good pair of boots. That’s all you need to get through life. There need to be more good things. Things that will last.”
Some call her the Preditor: a producer, director and editor hybrid.
She is technologically advanced but not in the ‘corpse-skinning alien who stalks and hunts people down’ kind of way. Well, not yet
Our in-house editor and post-production producer, Audrey, whose nickname is Dre, is an introverted extrovert, and has no idea how it really works but it is who she is.
She loves the beat, and dancing, and says that kind of rhythmic prancing goes hand-in-hand with editing.
“Music is the heart of what I do. Dancing is about rhythm, and when I’m editing I’m usually listening to music. There is the beat. And videos have their own beat. They are both emotional. Showing people’s emotions through storytelling. Communicating a message visually.”
Audrey’s intuition, creativity and skills, and collaboration with our artists, raises our clients’ beats.
She’s an editing weapon; her attention to detail, care and flair translate in Premiere. Yeah it rhymes, get over it.
And has domestic and international experience in advertising and social media markets.
In complete food rapture, Audrey is also a shooter (capturing moments that would otherwise be lost forever), and emerging short documentary filmmaker.
