About Us

Like most good ideas, JRP was first dreamed up over a couple of cold beverages in a Matakana pub.

We began to imagine a world where everyday businesses could connect with their audiences through the power of compelling video content. Where it wasn’t just big brands with big budgets who could have big reach and big impact. Where every business could share their story with the world in a way that set them apart from the rest.
