Kinetic media is a Christchurch and Queenstown based production company. We are best known for our sports documentary and event coverage but we are experienced video professionals and our credit list includes prime-time television, commercials, corporate, promos, news and documentary.
We are industry leaders in sports production with a number of New Zealand firsts to our name particularly in non-stadia sports and in the emerging live streaming arena. We walk the line between traditional and new media and this enables us to offer the best solution to our clients for any given situation.
We firmly believe that the platform is irrelevant and its the quality of the product that matters. We bring a decade of experience to our jobs regardless of whether they are traditional broadcast, live web streams or youtube highlights packages and we aim to deliver a media product which works best for the client, the sponsors and the audience.
"Kinetic Media has been my first choice for any sports television production for a number of years now. For the 2013 Winter Games NZ, I asked them to really step up and produce a daily highlights product from multiple venues in a mountain environment. Further, I asked that the television be edited live and include a live webcast for an international audience. It was no surprise to me that Ingrid and Richard took on the challenge and produced a quality product over ten days despite numerous weather, snow and scheduling pressures. I regard Kinetic Media as New Zealand's leading non-stadia sports television production company and won't hesitate going back to them for the 2015 Winter Games NZ."
Arthur Klap - Sports Impact - CEO WinterGamesNZ
“The quality of Kinetic Media’s work is best reflected by the popularity of the end product. Every production they have produced for us has been well received by viewers. In some cases these productions have been forwarded to outside entities such as advertising agencies and local councils for promotional purposes, and they too have been impressed."
Michael Jaques - Event Organiser: Karapoti Classic, New Zealand Mountain Bike Week, Crazyman Multisport race
“We engaged Kinetic Media to help us deliver a TV and digital broadcast package for the 2012 UCI Juniors Track World Championships. Kinetic managed our full daily broadcast requirements to UCI, all domestic and international broadcast media and media to our event website, as well as negotiating international broadcast for our event TV package. I have no hesitation in endorsing Kinetic Media as a broadcast partner of the highest possible standing. We could not have asked for more.”
