What our clients say
Pat Murray was the Director of Photography for the Qantas award winning series 'e tu kahikatea'. The series showcased Maoridom's firsts in a very personal and honest way - and they were all over 70. Thus it took a very special team to bring together the stories shared by our people who had lived lives constantly in the media. From fears and regrets, to falling in love, Pat captured them in all their glory and all their sadness, always maintaining a high production value. Everyone fell in love with Pat and our crew mantra became 'if Pat hasn't cried, our work isn't done'. The age and fraility of many of the icons required a team that worked tirelessly and who were utterly committed to the icon who we were working with. I think the world of Pat as a Director of Photography, and his work with our Maori leaders will never be forgotten.
We contracted Pixelz to direct and produce a series of internal corporate videos shot during our bi-annual Maori and Pasifika leadership forum. Throughout the entire production and post-production process, we found Pat and his team at Pixelz to be professional and efficient. Pat's wealth of experience helped to guide us to ensure that we captured what we needed during our event. His crew were also professional, friendly and displayed a cultural understanding, qualities which were noted and appreciated by our staff and guest speakers. We were extremely impressed with the end product and will not hesitate to use Pixelz for future projects.
Our work with Pat and his team aimed to attract talent to the business, ensure limited buyer’s remorse and to market to people outside the business how great it is to work with us. The induction DVD that was produced went beyond our expectations in terms of the look and feel of it and the speed with which it was accomplished . What I appreciated most about Pat Directing was just how easy he and the crew were to work with. They were relaxed and really helped to put people at ease as they were sat in front of the camera, ensuring they were shown to their best in the final product. They made my role as “producer” very easy and straightforward, helping me through every step of the end to end process. Pat and the team were also particularly accommodating with a last minute request for a “bloopers” reel to play at the Xmas function, which went down a treat with everyone… we ended up having to produce copies for each region and it really lifted engagement… an unexpected bonus!
We were really pleased at the professionalism of Pixelz when they undertook to produce a DVD for our website. They did absolutely everything for the DVD from the script to the voice and arranging what we wanted just by talking with us and understanding our product. The result is really professional and is sent regularly to our global clients. The DVD is an integral part of our marketing and advertising strategy.
As a freelance advertising copywriter, I’ve worked with Pat on a number of video projects, ranging from care of the elderly, to electricity generation, to the racing industry. In all those projects, often working to a tight budget, Pat has demonstrated an outstanding ability to capture what matters most in a person or scene — so you end up with a video that has real emotional power. He is also a pleasure to work with, friendly and relaxed, but at the same time, rigorously professional. Pat cares about ensuring content is strategically on the mark, he meets his deadlines, and he is responsive when things need to change. He’s great to work with, and he gets great results, that says it all.
New Zealand Racing Board selected Pixelz to produce an induction video for new employees to our organisation. The result was a production that exceeded our expectations, which allows us to showcase our business to New Zealand. Pixelz provided full project support from initial planning including design and script writing through to final delivery. Pat Murray and his friendly team's knowledge and expertise proved invaluable throughout the project and when our timeframes and requirements shifted, Pixelz completely accommodated us; nothing was a problem. The final result is an inspiring video that tells our story which we can be proud of. I would highly recommend the experienced, professional team at Pixelz for quality results.
