TEAM of Champions
This is what happens when brand strategists meet videographers, who know editors who love motion graphics and special effects, who hang out with creative directors, sound designers and marketers. You get a team of champions.
Mike Welker: Partner/Tech Genius/Really Nice Guy
Technology, innovation, gear, gadgets and fast cars -- that's Mike Welker. A race car driver at heart, Mike knows the ins and out of what makes a great video spectacular, and no detail is too small to be overlooked and improved upon. With the precision of a surgeon, Mike oversees all aspects of creation to ensure the best possible product is produced at the best price. Beware, however, if you've got a nice car, he'll want to check out what's under the hood and take it for a spin.
Jeanette McFarlane: Managing Director and Idea Farmer
After 20 years of building brands in traditional marketing and communications roles, Jeanette had a new idea and a better way to bring brands to life.
Magical beans, you say? No.
Insights, emotion and intrigue.

Lee De Lang: Founder/President/Head Dude
Lee is a man with a mountain bike, a camera and an idea...he wanted to create a company that was the very best at telling and creating video stories. He is a tough mudder at heart and a man of few words who knows how great visuals can inspire emotions and connect people.
Bob Holt: Motion Graphics Magician/EPL Super Fan
Bob-o is a man who enjoys a good cuppa tea next to his keyboard in the morning. He has a talented eye for cutting edge effects and a gift for contemporary stylized editing. He brings fresh new ideas and thinking to the studio, along with his love of the English Premier Football League. His true passion is for blowing things up on screen, and keeping his animation tricks a mystery.
Tristan Moran: Editor and Storitorial Chief
The "kernel of truth," as Tristan likes to call it, is the moment a story begins. Tristan has the uncanny ability to find the story within a story, and is an exceptional editor and story maker. His intelligence and wit makes everyday an exciting day in the studio -- even when he's working like a dog.
Sam Burrows: Videographer and Crime Fighter
Sam Burrows is a man with big eyes, big ears and a big heart. He sees, hears and thinks of everything behind the lens of a camera to create the best video story possible. He is a shooter, editor, producer, director, lover, fighter, spelling corrector-er and all around Top Gun. When on-set, Sam keeps it cool, keeps client's confident and thrives on taking the bull by its horns to help tell your story. He's cutting edge.
Alex Heaslip: Bumblebee man, Videographer and Editor
Many words have been used to describe Alex: Charming, Resourceful, Tech Savvy, Inventive, Imaginative, Fanatical Belieber. When asked to describe himself in a single word, Alex whispered, "Crypto-mysterio."
Alex is a talented and award-winning videographer and editor. A self-described "veritable well of creative ingenuity and flatulence," he makes the impossible possible. With his eye for creative storytelling and technological expertise, Alex will see your video through from concept to creation.
Marc Barsanti: CFO and Bean Counter
Marc isn't your average CFO: he loves to count beans, but he's not a nerd. He's a fiercely competitive hockey player and a super star dad who loves to analyze the stats. He keeps our business and your business on track and headed in the right direction. He's more than a numbers guy -- he's our secret weapon.
Cara Migliazza: Office Manager, Go-Getter, Sharp Shooter
When Cara says, "get 'er done", she means it -- and adds a little spice along the way to make things better.
An avid reader, a rabid movie enthusiast and all around story sponge -- Cara is always trying to find ways to experience stories. She's the first person you see when you walk into the office and is the best way to start your day. Her desk is often surrounded by an array of post-it notes and to-do lists in an effort to ensure that the storytellers at Flashframe have all the support they need to do what they do. She's the magic behind our videos and is the glue that holds us together.
Josh Sam: Videographer Apprentice
Often fuelled by many cups of coffee and the occasional twizzler, Josh Sam began his creative journey as a freelance photojournalist. His work has been published and sold internationally and his passion for visual storytelling has given him the opportunity to work with, and learn from, a variety of different talents. Now a seasoned professional himself, Josh uses his skills and knowledge to tell a story in a creative and original way. He also occasionally doodles and is known to make a super-awesome cup of coffee -- just some of the many reasons we're happy to have him join our team.
Smuckers: Actress, Support Services and Ball Chaser
She's smart, she's fast and she has a keen eye for bouncy things. Smuckers lives to tell the tale (with no tail), and has appeared in several of our main productions over the past few years. She is often found in the office quietly observing everybody in hopes of finding some food on the ground to snack on. Her support and friendly wiggle is always there to greet you, and is one of the many reasons she is part of the family.
Cooper: The Enforcer and Couch Guard
He's got short legs, a loud voice and a big heart when it comes to being part of the team. Enthusiastically, he greets us with a friendly hello and then returns to the comfort of his bed or a patch of carpet for his afternoon nap. He enjoys snacks, scraps and the odd squeaky toy, and keeps us company on late night projects and edits. Without Cooper we would never know when a delivery is being made or when it's time for the 5 o'clock walk.
