VMP commenced operations in 1996 under the banner of Video Media Productions. Our more concise domain name vmp.com.au was established the same year. Shooting and editing on Betacam SP for Southbank Parklands and Toyota amongst other clients allowed the business to grow and become an early adopter of new technology. Our ground-breaking non-linear computer based editing systems included 601/Sliver and then Avid and now the Adobe products amongst other software.
In 1999 we moved to Broadway Street Woolloongabba and cemented our reputation for creative and cost effective solutions. After a decade of innovation in that abode we moved to our current address at 42 Clarence Street Coorparoo in 2010. Our name and logo transformed to the acronym VMP and now we have completed the green screen studio to add to our edit and graphic suites. 20 years and literally thousands of productions have flown by and our passion for production is greater than ever!!
