BKP Media Group, the Dubai-based audio and video production house, recently announced that it has merged its video post department with film and video content company Collective.ae.
Following its recent re-branding, which saw BKP (Barry Kirsch Productions) become BKP Media Group, the company's partnership with Collective marks a new era for the existing video post division, which will now be known as Collective@BKP.
BKP's CEO and founder, Barry Kirsch, explains: “We’ve been here a very long time and have become the go-to company for anyone wanting to work with a trustworthy, award-winning production team. And it was around a decade ago that we started our video post set-up. Over the years we’ve seen this side of the business grow to a stage where we now have full-time video editors and motion graphic experts sitting in our state-of-the-art video post studios alongside our seven audio studios."
Kirsch continues: "But after more than 30 years in this industry, I have seldom been as excited by what the future holds in the opportunities offered by the power of new communications and technology. In my ongoing quest for the highest standards in creativity and what fits our work and generates energy and ideas, the partnership between BKP Video and Collective is a tremendous addition. We’ve invested heavily into a refurbishment plus a procurement of the latest hardware and software to accommodate the expansion.”
With the transition into BKP's existing premises in Media City now complete, Collective@BKP is headed up by film director Omar Abbas, executive producer Peter Simons and managing director Reem Hameed.
Abbas says: “We have grown from a group of highly enthusiastic and creative individuals into a brand that can now deliver on time, on budget and to/above client expectations. In an industry where reputation is everything, we feel this partnership has created a real power house in the industry.”
