GMi and the Prime Minister at the City East Opening

Prime Minister Julia Gillard With the completion of works by the City East Alliance Project, the team at GMi was there to capture the opening of the upgraded Great Eastern Highway by Prime Minister Julia Gillard. It was a proud day for everyone involved in the project seeing traffic flow freely along the upgraded highway and meeting the Prime Minister just added to it.

GMi provided high quality video and photography services across the project as well as contributing to the CEA website design. The videos were used extensively by media outlets producing stories about the project and in a corporate documentary about the upgrade, while the photos were used for the web, banners, posters and billboards, and in newspaper articles.

The crew at GMi have stayed in touch with the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) scientists working on the Fire Mosaic research project near Walpole in the South West of WA.  Our youngest team member, Carl‘s daughter Clare, was invited to take part in the catching and classification of the bugs and became DEC’s youngest volunteer entomologist.

After spending a few days with the crew of science division Clare can boast finding 6, so far, unclassified species of moth, 1 new beetle and an all new wasp!

Wedding Wishes From the Best Lamb

best lamb2013 has got off to a bang with Mark M getting married.

Mark and his lovely bride Jessica chose Harvey Dam to be the venue and the weather was perfect.  Of course, the bride was looking radiant in a white dress with blue sash and the groom was spotted in a shirt, tie and suit.  Probably the first time Mark has been spotted out with an ironed shirt and we have the photographic proof.  We are sure that his lovely bride will bring many changes to Mark – appearance, tidyness and an ability to listen – all for the better!

 
master of ceremoniesAnd no GMi wedding event would be complete without and appearance from “Best Lamb” Lamby who watched over the whole event.  Luckily for Lamby, the weather wasn’t roastingly hot or he might have got the chop…

A big congratulations and best wishes from us all to Mark and his beautiful wife.

Happy New Year from GMi

Happy 2013 from everyone here at GMi! 2012 was an interesting year for us which saw new clients, new modes of delivery and new gear, we had some great times in 2012 with our fantastic clients and each other, and we hope to continue this in 2013.

Things we are particularly looking forward to include the projects on Dirk Hartog Island and in our states southern forests, the completion of the project based in the Little Sandy, further uptake of our SCORM based corporate video and training packages (which has seen some fantastic interest of late), more adventures for Lamby and a whole host of projects we cant even talk about yet… But watch this space.

So a massive thank you to all of those who made our 2012 so memorable and here’s to the many new and exciting things that 2013 brings.

Meet the Crew – Lamby

The fifth and final in our series of stories introducing the crew here at GEO Media interactive, today we meet GMi’s Mascot, Lamby.

So just who is that masked lamb, this international lamb of mystery?

Lamby is a  seldom mentioned member of GMi’s away crew, is a part-time camera assistant and 1st AD and full time indie hipster.  Originally employed in 2006 by Carl’s daughter, he was sent with Mark and Carl to make sure that all the work got done during a shoot in the north of the state. Well, he returned safe bringing photos of his work and now accompanies us on all extended shoots.

He is now the most travelled member of the team here at GMi with trips not only around our great state but throughout Europe as well. A regular on the GMi photo wall at our office and now adopted as our filming mascot, look out for him in our photo gallery as he continues his adventures!

Meet the Crew – Mark W

The fourth in our series of stories introducing the crew here at GEO Media interactive, today we meet Mark Whittle, GMi’s resident Mac apologist.

Mark began his career at the Film & Television Institute in 1984 working on corporate projects then moved to Bunbury a year later to join GWN.

Over 14 years valuable experience was gained in the areas of camera, audio, lighting, directing live programs and outside broadcasts, but his favourite is still editing. In 1989, Mark won GWN’s Crew Member of the Year Award and in 1994/95 received a cinematography award (editing & lighting) from the Australasian Retail Results Awards.

Mark started his own business in 2000, handling everything from TV commercials to weddings. In 2009 Mark & Supernova attained accreditation in corporate video with the Australian Video Producers Association (AVPA). In 2010 he decided to specialize in weddings with Supernova Video Production and bring his corporate clients to GMi.

Says Mark, “Working with three staunch Wintel tragics, I have an uphill battle as the solitary Mac user in the facility. They refuse to drool over my shiny MacBook Pro. “
