The Put It Out There Pictures team has spent several years making hundreds of hours of television for local audiences in post-Taliban Afghanistan. Much of the programming was funded by organisations like the US State Department, International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), United Nations, British Embassy, USAID, World Health Organisation (WHO), and US Department of Defence. Content produced includes a weekly soap opera, police action drama series, counter-narcotics mini-series, mockumentary comedy series, documentaries, travelogue series, lifestyle shows, public service announcements, and commercials.
We are able to work with clients and investors to develop concepts and ideas that encompass client communication objectives within the framework of strong storytelling and high quality production values.
With any project, Put It Out There Pictures can manage individual stages or the entire project from concept to delivery.
Whether working with a partner production company or bringing in our own team of specialists, PIOTP can manage all facets of television and radio production. We have an award winning team of crew and technicians who can, not only ensure production is carried out with quality and creativity, but also instruct local personnel on the latest production best practices.
With sixteen years writing experience in many different television and radio formats, PIOTP can develop original show concepts or carry out the entire scripting process for drama, documentary, and variety television.
PIOTP believes that, to maximize audience impact in conflict zones/developing countries, stories need to be driven by well-defined, multi-dimensional characters and engaging plots grounded in truth and local cultural reality.
Teaching a burgeoning broadcast industry on best practice techniques is a specialist skill. We have selected a team who have experience and expertise in their field, but also have the proper mentoring traits to train young television professionals. We live and work by the philosophy that it’s not worth doing unless it’s done with creativity, responsibility, craft, and technique. That is also what we instil in all of our staff, especially those learning on-the-job in our writer’s rooms, on our sets, or in our post-production facilities.
With experienced proposal writers and project managers, PIOTP can assist with composing and submitting any media funding proposals in relation to strategic communications for development or more traditional film and television agency funding.
In addition to producing content, Put It Out There Pictures works with clients to devise appropriate broadcast strategies that will maximise target audience reach. Making a high quality television drama or factual entertainment show is only half of what is required to entice an intended demographic. We’re highly experienced in researching local broadcast environments, selecting and negotiating with television networks, and creating trailers and other promotional materials to support broadcast launches.
We take great care to devise robust and locally appropriate multi-platform marketing strategies to widen the audience net. Whether it’s radio, online media or direct publicity we find innovative and cost effective ways to amplify the narrative and messaging so the value of the content is extended beyond a traditional broadcast.
