About Me ...

Martin Johnson Communications was founded in 2008 and produces video for web, DVD and TV. We have more than 35 years experience in the industry and are now in our eighth year of producing videos for small business, corporates, not-for-profit organisations and churches. 

Martin first starting working in the industry at a commercial TV station in Melbourne in 1972. After a year of learning audio and sound mixing, he decided to try on-air announcing and spent three years in regional New South Wales in Griffith, where he worked for 2RG and MTN 9. By this stage, he realised television production was his future and so moved to RVN 2 (now Prime) Wagga Wagga as a Producer/Director.

In Wagga Wagga he was selected to receive a Rotary Foundation Award and spent a year at San Diego State University studying film and television production.

On his return he worked for one of Australia’s leading Christian non-profit organisations, Wesley Mission, Sydney. During his twenty years at Wesley, Martin was responsible for a weekly half hour television program, a weekly four-hour radio program, which rated #1 in its time slot, numerous short documentary style features and multi-camera live television outside broadcasts at Easter and Christmas, seen nationally on the commercial networks.

In 1984-6, he produced and directed a ground-breaking series of 36, half-hour religious documentaries for Wesley Mission, filmed on location throughout the Middle-East. The ‘Discovering’ series hosted by Gordon Moyes was recognised around the world for its innovation. (Shot on 16mm with Arri 16 camera and double system sound).

More recently, Martin worked for Bible Society (2002 – 2007) where he helped develop the ‘Jesus. All about life’ campaign, a prime-time media campaign, which has run in Adelaide, Canberra/ACT, Tasmania, Western Australia and NSW. He travelled extensively – writing, filming, editing and voicing documentary segments filmed in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Africa, China, Cambodia and the Philippines.

Martin Johnson Communications focuses on producing web videos and DVDs for a range of clients, both Christian and secular.
