Your one stop marketing shop

Company Profile – About Able Video & Multimedia

Able is about relationships; about connecting people; our connection with you; your connection with your clients or prospective customers; About striving for the elusive concept of perfection, about value for money and satisfying expectations. 

Many of our clients find our straight shooting, one-stop-shop, can-do attitude refreshingly different to the smoke & mirrors menagerie that is the advertising industry today. We know we are doing our job when our clients recommend us to their friends and associates. Most of our clients have come to us by referral and most stay. Many have become friends.

Able Video and Multimedia is unique in that it integrates creative and technical talent in video and film production, web and graphic design and multimedia and animation, all in-house. The Able team really believe in what they do, that striving for perfection is just as important as satisfying client expectations. That’s why many of the Gold Coast’s largest companies, such as Wyndham, Retail Food Group & Digga have used Able for their corporate videos for the last ten years.

We also have in-house state-of-the-art audio recording & blue/green screen studios and duplication facilities (and plenty of off-street parking) at our Minnie St, Southport premises.
