Starting out as an editor, Tony travelled to highly dangerous, war zones in the Middle East with NBC and CBC News, also covering major events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall.
His reputation led him to become the resident ‘go to guy’ for all the major UK networks seeking freelance editors. Too busy himself, he began referring work onto friends and old colleagues, which led him to set up Editors Un Ltd (Editors Unlimited) in 1987 – a London based, freelance crewing agency which grew to be the largest crewing agency in the UK by 1990. Clients included all major UK Broadcasters such as ITN, Channel 4, BSKYB and the BBC.
After working for all the major television networks upon his return to Australia, Tony’s keen interest in emerging technologies and the desire to expand his post-production skill set, saw him establish Promo Scape Pty Ltd in 2003 – a modest TV promo production company that rapidly evolved into a reputable DVD post-production company within only four months of operation.
As their reputation for quality and quick turnarounds grew, so too did Promo Scape’s business, bringing them into full on DVD and now Blu-ray production for Australian studios.
With an impressive and loyal list of clients such as Shock Entertainment, Umbrella Entertainment, Via Vision, Aztec and Visual Entertainment Group, Promo Scape is now one of Australia’s leading DVD and Blu-ray authoring houses, specialising in the production of Blu-ray and DVDs for commercial release, post authoring, on-air network promos, programs for broadcast and corporate television, motion graphics, broadcast graphics and interface design.
Tony and his team are constantly investing in the latest hardware, software and upgrades to be able to offer their clients the absolute best. They are the only post-production company in Australia to own a CINEMA CRAFT® HD Encoder (CC-HDe), the highest quality Blu-ray AVC video encoder in the world, providing the same superior encodes you see on Blu-ray titles from major Hollywood studios such as Disney, Pixar, Sony Pictures, Universal, Paramount and Warner Bros.
Tony’s vision for Promo Scape, and his future, is to educate, impress and lead the way in creative and technical excellence, working with major motion picture companies on large-scale projects.
