New Beginnings


A new year, a new month and back into the old studios - with a brand new lick of paint and new gear! I won't bore you with all of our earthquake stories, suffice to say the last 12 months since that day of February 22

has seen Tandem and our team working from several locations with all the challenges involved. We are now happily back in the studios on Oxford Terrace, ChCh city and all studios are up and running. One of the great advantages of the earthquakes is the fact you get rid of a lot of stuff you don't need and haven't used for ages. It's a cleansing thing. Looking back at 2011 it was, to paraphrase our former All Black Captain Sean Fiztpatrick, ' a year of two halves'. The start was all earthquakes, shocks and trying to stay in some sort of normality but from April onwards the year turned out to be our best ever. Go figure? This year has also got off to a brilliant start filming a documentary for the 2012 World Buskers Festival - here's the You Tube channel we set up for them. We are madly editing now and will finish the 44 minute documentary for release in April. We've created blogs, social media and video for the 2012 Ellerslie International Flower Show, began work on a series of sports training DVDs for Athletics NZ and the The Royal Commission has again started with Tandem providing daily web streams and video archives through the LaBon (TM) website we've built. On top of that Parliament returned today with Tandem again editing and running the video website InTheHouse. Who knows what this year has in store for us, but with luck we'll build on the success of 2011 and still be here at the end of 2012. We do want to thank all of our clients who have stayed with us on this shaky journey and look forward to working together again at some point through the year. Tandem is providing social media content and video for the 2012 Ellerslie International Flower Show. The blog is ellerslielive and click here if you'd like to 'like' us at facebook. Through both we'll can keep you in touch with all things Ellerslie up to and through the show. Heres our latest video blog featuring Paul Wylaars a director of Zealandia. 'A sea of flowers'
