Our Core Services
FTP Media has steadfastly delivered quality content development, production, consultation, and support, to a wide range of organizations and firms since the company’s inception. Services include: video production and post-production, webcasting, digital strategy and social media management, content development and editing, media archival, and consulting.
Consulting has long been an integral part of FTP Media’s services. Whether advising clients on best practices for digital media production, social media management, user engagement strategies, or video production, FTP Media has provided consultation to many clients across various sectors since the company’s inception.
FTP Media assists clients with media management and archival services, including the digitization and cataloguing of source media found on various historical formats such as VHS, Beta or Super 8 film. FTP Media has worked with organizations large and small, as well as individuals and groups, to ensure the online protection, preservation, and strategic implementation of all pre-digital and new forms of media for current and future social media use.
FTP Media has provided video production services to clients in the arts and non-profit sectors since its inception. Whether the goal is to create a promotional video, electronic press kit, commercial spot, viral video or webcast, we continually serve three core objectives. Our first goal is to understand the clients’ communication needs and ensure those needs are met in the process of developing a sound budget, script, production outline and strategy. Secondly, we strive to deliver a high quality production on time and on budget. In addition, we provide consultation and support on the development and delivery of user engagement strategies.
In November 2009, FTP Media responded to the growing demand for online video production services by adding webcasting to the suite of services offered. Following the completion of an extensive media archival project, FTP Media was hired by Bruce Mau Design to webcast their studio launch event at BMD’s new Toronto headquarters. Since the success of this first event, FTP Media has continued to provide webcasting services to clients in the corporate and non-profit sectors, delivering quality and reliability to clients seeking reasonable rates with guaranteed results.
