About Us - Modern Rocket

We Are Different

Modern Rocket Media is a boutique-style video and multimedia production company launched in 1998. The vision of company founder Rob Kelly has always been to provide corporate clients with an alternative to large, often inflexible and expensive production companies. By operating the company from the picturesque Vancouver Island community of Comox – and building teams on a project-by-project basis – Modern Rocket has grown and succeeded in a competitive environment.

As strategic communicators, we pride ourselves in producing targeted video communication tools – not simply something that looks and sounds great. The quality of a program’s images and audio are integral elements but if the screen fades to black and your message has not penetrated the skull of your audience, then it’s all just been free entertainment for your viewers and money poorly spent for you. At Modern Rocket we are aware of this potential shortfall and dedicate ourselves to making sure your message is heard.

Modern Rocket specializes in building custom assembled teams for each specific project. Instead of having a permanent staff of producers, directors, writers, videographers and editors, Modern Rocket is in a position to select the best and most appropriate freelance video professionals. For example, if aerial footage is required for a project, Modern Rocket can hire the best aerial videographer in the city to work on our behalf. We are not limited to using only the resources within our four walls – we have the entire video production community from which to select our team.

The same can be said for options when choosing technical equipment. Many of the larger video production companies commonly have their own video cameras, lighting equipment and sound gear, and in some cases this equipment has not remained current with the latest technology. By negotiating rental agreements with the major equipment suppliers and editing facilities in the city, Modern Rocket is able to deliver programs that reflect the most current technological innovations.

A corporate video or new media program can be a powerful communication tool – persuasive, emotional, entertaining, intriguing, informative and educational. Modern Rocket Media is here to help you achieve the ambitious goals and objectives you have set for your project.

We worked with Modern Rocket on the production of a 7-minute staff video in spring 2013. Rob and his team were just terrific. Under a very tight timeline, they produced an excellent promotional video and portfolio of still photos which have been used repeatedly and with many audiences. Rob is a pleasure to work with and guided us through every step. Thanks, Rob! Kate Hill, Senior Consultant, Surrey Memorial Hospital Redevelopment & Expansion Project
