The Post Lounge, KND and AustereoPosted by Chris Garrett / July 14, 2011
Recently, the KND team have been working closely with Brisbane and Gold Coast based post production studio The Post Lounge on a major project for media group Austereo, the owner of some of the most popular radio stations in Australia.
The Post Lounge is a team of 20-30 people who look after the post production process, that is editing and adding effects and design graphics, for TV commercials, TV shows, documentaries and corporate videos. They work for major advertising agencies and television stations as well as for a range of corporate clients.
The Post Lounge has produced a number of TV commercials as well as branding animations and corporate videos for Austereo, so when the large media group wanted to bring all these resources together at one spot on the web – www.seeradiodifferently.com – they turned to The Post Lounge to help them do it.
The Post Lounge managed all the visual components, but called on KND’s expertise to architect, construct and deploy a powerful website that was easy to manage.
Austereo wanted the site as a resource for their sales team, to be able to demonstrate the value of advertising via radio and when the site first went live in early 2010 it featured largely corporate videos and other relevant information. In October 2010 Austereo realised that the site would benefit from an upgrade and added – via a Content Management System implemented by KND – more photos, videos and text, including a news feed and survey results.
Facilities Manager at The Post Lounge, Celeste Fairlie says “It’s been great working with the team at KND – both KND and The Post Lounge have had to work through a period of team changes and I’m pleased to say that this has not held up the Austereo project at all – we have been able to turnaround and implement major changes to the site inside pretty tight timeframes. Austereo are also delighted with how easy the site is to maintain using the CMS implemented for them by KND.”
