Adcorp’s National TV Department is set to ‘run the show’ in 2013 with the launch of Showrunner Productions. 

Showrunner Productions is Adcorp’s subsidiary TV production company that projects Adcorp beyond television commercials and corporate video production into the realm of the not so small screen, with a range of shows to be produced this year.

Up until October 2012, Adcorp’s TV Department comprised: 

Matt Anderson: National TV & Video Director

Matt has worked with Adcorp since 2004, and in a full-time capacity since 2008. His commercial experience is vast, having worked at Channel 7 with their engineering and editing teams. He has also worked on live broadcasts, corporate documentaries, TV productions and news, in various roles including directing, producing, filming, editing and as a technician.

The end of 2012 saw the TV team expand with 3 new full time staff members. We are really excited to announce the new team!

Let us introduce…. 

Ivan Davidov, Director of Photography and Editor 

Ivan’s editing and DOP skills have been an asset to Adcorp for a while. The experience and technical know-how demonstrated as a freelancer meant that Adcorp just had to have him full-time!

Ivan has extensive film experience having worked as an editor on several drama and factual TV series and working as a DOP on productions ranging form music videos to five feature films. Ivan is the cofounder of Nakatomi Pictures.

Ray Pedretti, Executive Producer

Ray has worked in the industry for over 25 years and has produced many TV programs from factual, true-life lifestyle and drama, to the glitz and glamour of game shows and innovative formats. 

As an Executive Producer, Ray wrote and produced the long running ABCTV series ‘Can We Help?’ and the locally produced 'Postcards Australia'. He specialises in contract negotiation, concept development and international sales.

As for me, I’m…

As Adcorp’s TV Creative, I oversee concepts, storyboards, scripts and TV shoots for Showrunner Productions. I have been a scriptwriter on a US animated television series for Hallmark/American Greetings. I’ve also had the opportunity to pitch concepts to major studios, including Bill Melendez Productions in London and the coveted Nickelodeon in Hollywood. I’m also a Cartoonist.
