Red Empire Media are proud to deliver a fast turnaround and outstanding results even on large-scale projects. In 2019, we were contacted by Macquarie Capital to produce a promotional video for DDH1 Drilling, Australia’s most successful deep hole drilling business. As they had a strict deadline, they required the video as soon as possible.
The second challenge was that this was not a simple metro-based shoot and required travel to remote locations across WA. DDH1 required footage of their drilling team and equipment on various sites from Mt Magnet to Leinster to Kalgoorlie. The video also needed an animated logo and graphics and complete sound design, including a voiceover.
We took on this challenge and successfully delivered this ambitious project in record time!
