We specialise in helping existing videographers produce high-quality work for high-quality clients.

We work with people who are creating commercial videos as a profession, or people who can make videos but need more structure and guidance on how to build this into a successful business.

We have a program that is specifically designed to help video creators improve their video content and increase their prices in 8 weeks, without having to sacrifice large amounts of time or money.

To get results you need strong storytelling skills, mentorship and accountability.

We give you storytelling skills through our simple storytelling framework that we use with every single video that we create.  


This framework will help you execute a strong story that communicates your vision and resonates with your target audience.


We give you mentorship and accountability through our community and weekly calls where you’ll receive detailed feedback on your videos.


First we establish your brand identity and the type of content you are making, and assess where you want to fit in the video content marketplace.


We then look at the foundations of storytelling and plan how you can create contagious content that resonates with your audience.

Next we look at the fundamentals of production and how to shoot and edit content that comes together into a compelling, cohesive and engaging story.

Finally, we look at your building your audience and future-proofing your video content and brand.

We are Josh, Mearle and Tom, and we run a video production company in Auckland, New Zealand.

Together we've created two award-winning TV shows that are now shown in over 100 countries around the world.  We've collaborated with some of New Zealand's most popular brands to make quirky video campaigns for both social media and TV.  We've also made documentaries, vlogs, viral videos, parody songs and even a podcast.

But it hasn't always been easy, and if we had known what we know now we could have saved ourselves loads of time, stress and money.

That's why we've created this framework - to give others the chance to learn from us and speed up their journey.

So, what exactly is this framework? Read on below!

Joining the Creators Circle has taken our business to the next level.  It has greatly improved the way in which we approach storytelling and has improved our quality of work.  It has highlighted the areas of our business we need to improve and provided the tools to do so.

What's more is that we now have instant access to experts in our field to advise and support along our journey.  Having access to mentors like Tom, Josh and Mearle is absolutely priceless. 


It's an investment in yourself and is completely worth it!"

"So far in the course I have been provided with so much value and knowledge on how to create successful content that is inline with my brand. The Creators Circle has provided me with so much and I am so thankful for that.


I have also been lucky enough to meet likeminded individuals in the circle which has motivated and pushed me to strive for more. Josh and Matt are super helpful mentors and are there for anything you need.

I highly recommend this course to anyone who want to get into content creation or build a brand for themselves!"


Te Manaia - Vlogger / Content Creator

"The course has been really good, I have gained a better perspective of what I am trying to achieve with my content creation - specifically story telling. Also I have asked for advice on topics not particularly covered in the course, and the guys have given first hand advice on what has worked for them previously."

Matt Thompson - Content Creator / Presenter / Adventurer


What brands have you worked with before?

Trade Me, Jucy, Charlies, TVNZ, Macs, The Travel Channel, 2Degrees and various others.

How many hours is the course?

The program requires a minimum of 2-3 hours a week and you can work at your own pace. However, we encourage people to put in as many hours as they can.

Will I get to speak to you directly?

Yes. We have regular group calls where we can talk through any obstacles or issues you are facing. We also have a private Facebook group where you can share your videos and receive constructive feedback from us and the community.
