Which online platform is right for reaching those with whom you want to connect, inform, entertain or engage? Write Across Media works with you to understand what you are trying to achieve, and then recommends the combination of media that serves your purpose. We never recommend a platform merely because its the platform de jour. It must be fit for purpose. With a big nod to Marshall McLuhan, who coined the phrase “The medium is the message”, we never just rollout the same content across different channels – messages must be crafted for each specific platform.
Write Across Media’s Kerry Sunderland loves working with other creative people to help them tell their stories across multiple platforms in the digital age. In particular, she has specialised in working with documentary filmmakers to develop cross-platform documentaries that are produced for the big screen, television and online delivery.
