Our Story

About the platform

 

Launched in June 2016, Crew Scout connects Australian businesses to vetted video production talent on demand.

 

Whether you are looking to create a video series for your business marketing campaigns or to simply hire a freelancer for a few hours to help out with your project, by posting your needs on Crew Scout, we will notify a target amount of members who are suited to your particular project, they can then submit a proposal & quote directly to you.

 

Every production team and freelancer on the platform has their own profile page which contains their recent work, profile, location & client reviews. When clients receive proposals for their project, they can easily view individual profile pages to gain a clear understanding of the company pitching for their project.

 

Crew Scout also handles secure payments, project protection, and client reviews all on the platform.

 

We are not an online job board, nor are we an agency, we are the best of both, using the power of modern technology to keep our costs down with a human touch to make sure you find the perfect match.

 

 

About the founder

 

Founded by Paul Moses, a seasoned professional with more that 10 years experience in the video production industry. Paul has worked in a range of video roles, starting out as a camera operator for Australian news networks (Channel 10, Channel Seven and Fox Networks) before moving into the online video industry taking on roles ranging from producing, directing and technical departments.

 

Paul has worked in over 15 countries worldwide including a spell in Europe working on projects such as London Olympics 2012, BBC Arabic (Julian Assange), and BBC 1 Breakfast. He has worked for clients such as Dubai Tourism, BMW, The Times, SAGA, Easyjet, Adidas, Nike, NSW Government & Telstra.

 

In 2012 Paul founded cameraoperatorsydney.com, a Sydney based freelance crew resource providing video production crew to the Sydney market as well as the international market needing crew in Sydney. Since 2012, camera operator sydney has completed well over 1000 projects with a great reputation in the Sydney area. It is this knowledge and reputation of matching businesses with trusted crew that lead to the creation of Crew Scout.

 

Since founding Crew Scout, the business has grown into a close knit team of developers, project producers & advisors. We have signed up over 150 vetted video production crew ranging from creative video agencies, video production companies, boutique production houses, freelance collectives & individual freelancers.

 

We have helped customers find video makers in (most corners) of Australia but primarily Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Gold Coast and other regional centres.

  • "The flexibility and customer service Crew Scout offer is the main reason I am going to be using them again for my future events.
    And the clincher is that I ended up getting a lower price than when I approached film crews individually!"

  • "We needed a video made for our website but just didn't have the time to spare reaching out to video-makers to find someone who could get started immediately. We posted a project on Crew Scout and literally within 36 hours received a number of pitches before choosing our favourite. Matt & Nadia nailed the brief, they kept us continuously up to date with progress and delivered outstanding footage in record time. Highly recommended."
