“If a picture is worth a thousand words, then on Video says more than a million words“
The marketing landscape has undoubtedly changed since the Internet became the dominant mode of communication. Content marketing has similarly become one of the primary methods companies use to build their brand and apply to customers. The content, while informative, is also inherently visual. For businesses looking to grow their organic audience, visually engaging content is a must.
Start AX Media
It is known that video is the most engaging form of content. However, there is a lot to be done to write, film, and edit a quality video to showcase your brand. AX Media covers every aspect of the process – from brainstorming to preparing the video for distribution.

I have a passion for compelling storytelling, unique images, as well as representation and diversity in the media. I’m a creative storyteller and passionate about content creator, I have a bachelor’s degree in screen media, and I have a diverse background in digital software and writing for the creative industries. Right after graduating from university, I decided to realize my passion and dream with AX Media.
3. What are some of your key milestones and achievements?
Our customers are our greatest success. We have 21 satisfied customers, 27 completed projects and 372 hours of footage. Our better-known clients include Olympus Australia, the State of Library of NSW and Western Sydney University. Some of the most recent notable projects are:
- JM Coetzee (Nobel Prize Winner in Literature) at the NSW State Library

4. What are your plans for the future?
We will strive to deliver our services to local communities and businesses and want them to discover the power of video production. We also want to make things easier for clients by implementing a streamlined process for all of our clients, regardless of whether they are individuals, companies or artists.
What companies can learn from AX Media
It is possible to love what you do and turn a passion project into a full time business. As Amy pointed out, starting your own business can be risky, but it’s a risk well worth taking. Providing a full service to customers is also related to retention, with customers coming back time and time again.
