About

Why Absolutely AV Video Productions as opposed to other video production companies in Johannesburg?

We do have the basic company information about Absolutely AV bellow. But because the reason you are reading this is probably to find out: Why you should trust us, and use our services, as opposed to our competition.

So what about Absolutely AV should matter to you?

The most important part about us is that we deliver on the promise of a video that you will be proud and this of at a price you will struggle to beat. So what makes what we do so different? The difference is movement. Moving cameras are the Hallmark of Hollywood movies. and it is what makes a basic shoot look wow. You want this in your videos.

Most video companies charge extra for moving cameras. A whole lot extra. We don’t. Our camera movement is included in the price. Apart from drone footage, our moving camera equipment is part of the deal.

What Does This Mean For Your Videos?

This means even the simplest shot can have eye catching movement. Why should this matter to you? Most companies struggle to make themselves look interesting. A good example is industrial companies with factories and manufacturing facilities. They don’t always look that interesting but throw in a bit of movement and suddenly factories can look amazing and exciting.

Absolutely AV specializes in turning basic shots into “Hollywood style” movement shots.

This all at a very competitive price, fast turn around and personalized service. What more could you want?

And now for the information stuff:

The History and experience of Absolutely AV

Our experience began in the mid 1990’s with working in the film industry and TV. This involved post production audio work done on movies for cinema and included big name productions for well-known film directors in South Africa. This also included working in post production audio for big name TV adverts and broadcast TV shows for the SABC.

How We Grew.

Absolutely AV Video Productions moved into HD and Hybrid video production, providing affordable high quality video productions to businesses. Video went online and streaming began because technology improved. More and more businesses realized that video for marketing of their businesses was now in reach and affordable.

Our Experience

A range of post production services were included. Transfer of content from devices such as Nagra device to super 16 mm film and post production work was done on U-matic video machines and DV Cam equipment. Experience was gained on one of the first ever completely digital audio suites. this was long before audio software became available to consumers.

In The Beginning

At the early stages of independent film making and productions, mini DV and VHS tape machines were used. This meant experience with equipment that had little to no automatic technology to assist the camera operator. The work included wedding videos and corporate event videos for conferences. Converting training and internal messaging to DVD discs and distributing them throughout a business was also done. There were also attempts at mini DVD disc for distribution as electronic business cards.

Work done.

In 2003 the business of Absolutely AV was officially established. This became an all encompassing audio visual production team. Absolutely AV was one of the first to provide AV equipment hire and video production under one roof. The result was a production company in Johannesburg that could cater for all conference and event needs.
The company changed and adapted to the market. We began focusing more on marketing videos for small and medium sized businesses. By 2013 Absolutely AV was providing high quality HD video. This was compatible with online video platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo.

South African internet began to catch up with international speeds. Video became a more viable option for marketers and companies in Gauteng South Africa. Companies from Sandton to Germiston, Pretoria and Johannesburg South, began to realize the importance of video for marketing.
What began as a trickle in 2013 turned into a flood by 2018. And now the majority of businesses who understand marketing understand the importance of video.
