"I had the pleasure of engaging Lifebuoy Video last year to help us to create short videos of people with lived experience of sleeping difficulties telling their 'sleep stories'. Lifebuoy were so good to work with in terms of their professionalism, reliability, creative and technical skills. They were sensitive, compassionate and showed genuine interest in what we're doing at the Sleep Health Foundation. They are very experienced and I highly recommend them."

CEO, Sleep Health Foundation
"It has been an amazing team effort with attention to detail. The partnership group & us are so excited by all 25 videos in English, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, Hindi and Vietnamese languages. We will blast into 2023 sharing these video's across communities. Thanks heaps for your patience and kindness as a producer."

"I want to let you know that we have conducted our first workshop using the suite of videos that Lifebuoy produced for us. The videos were very well received by the participants and I think we have now got plans in place to do even further work to package and get the material out widely. We very much appreciate the high quality of work that you and your team have achieved in these videos, and it showcased what people who have dementia are capable of, (given a chance). It was a pleasure to be able to work with Lifebuoy Video on this project, so many thanks and best wishes in your continuing work."

"As the chair of the Childhood Heart Failure Patient Advocacy Group at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, I have first hand experience working with Justin and the team at Lifebuoy Video. It was an absolute pleasure working them in creating a series of patient stories to advocate for the cardiac community. I found them approachable, warm, professional, flexible and fun to work with! All of the patient participants also commented on what a welcoming environment Justin and his team created for them to share their stories on camera. We will definitely be working with Lifebuoy again in the future and would highly recommend them!"

"Our team at SBS In Language has worked extensively with both Justin Hutchison and Lifebuoy Video for over 10 years. The Lifebuoy crew are a preferred and trusted production partner that we always brief in early in the production cycle. 

As well as having a genuine interest in creating engaging content for diverse audiences, the Lifebuoy team work closely with a range of expert audio visual specialists and understand the delicate, and sometime complex, nature of producing video’s and TV commercials in other languages. 

Working on location with Justin and the team across Australia, the expertise and professionalism demonstrated ensure all moving parts are managed effectively to both brief and budget."

"I had the pleasure of working with Lifebuoy when making videos for people with cancer about to start treatment with immunotherapy.

Justin and his team were professional, thoughtful and very patient. Their attention to detail was amazing and we were delighted with the end product. Would not hesitate to work with them again."

"Tweddle Child and Family Health Service recently worked with Lifebuoy Video Production. We were impressed with their clever solutions to film babies and toddlers and their parents in a range of settings. Despite the pandemic filming a day of pieces to camera also posed no problems. They provided a well-priced quote and have edited a suite of 50 films within a few months.

Always quick to respond to our questions they quickly became a trusted project partner. Lifebuoy Video Production knows the film business back to front and enabled our team to exceed our high expectations."

"We work in the area of healthcare communications skills education & training. Video resources of clinical scenarios are critical resources for this and in particular when these educational offerings are deployed at scale.

Co-developing these videos with Lifebuoy has been a very collaborative process allowing us to tap into their expertise and their team being keen to understand the elements that drive learning and have human impact on those that watch the videos.

Their input vastly improves the quality and impact of our material and we have great trust in working with them as partners."
Professor Peter Martin

"The Lifebuoy team go above and beyond for their clients. A highly professional team, who make you feel supported throughout all stages and aspects of your project. We have worked with Lifebuoy on a number of projects and on each occasion, we have had outputs better than what we ever imagined!

At times, we have challenged the team with limited concepts and briefs, and from there we have watched the magic happen. Lifebuoy will provide guidance, field experience and recommendations on what will make an effective product. I would strongly recommend Lifebuoy."
Tammy Garrett
"Our team have worked with Lifebuoy Video on several projects and their commitment to understand the context, audience and purpose of each project is evident in the details they bring forth. Our work often requires engagement with members of the community, those affected by cancer or chronic disease. 

The Lifebuoy team are sensitive and supportive of each and every individual, and the busy clinical or teaching environments we may be filming in. The team can quickly build relationships with those on set, and ensure personalities come through in the narratives shared. This makes for powerful person-centred content."

Their creativity, consistency and professional ability to bring the right balance of emotion and objectivity to any corporate content makes me know I can trust their work, and they understand what our needs are.

I love that they are also flexible and can provide interstate production teams readily available when we needed to shoot a national video! Keep up the wonderful work Lifebuoy!"

"Justin and the Lifebuoy Video team were recently involved with producing a video resource for patients receiving cancer treatment at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre. Lifebuoy Video was involved from script development and editing, choosing voice over and actor talent, and through to final production.

The production team also expertly handled further development of the video resource with translated versions into four additional languages. The project team and I were very impressed with the professionalism and skill set of the entire Lifebuoy Video team.

I will continue to approach Justin and his crew for future development of this current project, as well as new projects in the future. My patients and treatment team are very impressed with the video resource, so well done, and thank you!"

"Our experience with Lifebuoy Video was outstanding. Every step of the way, Justin and his team showed unending patience and excellent advice on achieving the final product – from taking the brief, to helping us develop the plan for a series of clinical simulation videos, to filming and then post production.

Our students and clinicians have been glowing in their praise of the finished product. Thank you."
