Prom TV was an exciting project that we undertook in 2015. Streamed through YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and of course this web site, we wanted to offer our customers a unique online audio-visual experience where they could take virtual tours of some of our popular venues along with our crew.
The format was something kind of like “Catfish” meets “MTV” meets “A Current Affair”, mixed in with a measured dose of cheesiness and fun.
The personality team was a charismatic crew of young people out the front, supported by real-world media specialists behind the scenes in production, copy-writing, journalism, directing and editing. The best part is they had the time of their lives doing this and it shows.
Take a look at some of the Sydney formal venues (below) that gladly participated in Prom TV and wait until the very end to see the out-takes.
Say hello to the current members of the Prom TV Crew…
Cameraman / Presenter / Creative Genius
Sam is our Go Pro / DSLR eyes and ears. Pretty much everything you'll see on Prom TV, he sees first RAW.
Sam comes to us with serious experience in TV & film production and will make us all look better than real life. He's also one of our more popular presenters and a mad practical joker.
Presenter / Reporter
Chanelle comes to us from the exciting world of international 6-star cruises and top-level live entertainment. She's right at the cutting edge of dance culture and knows the latest trends sweeping the globe on event entertainment.
Her energy knows no bounds.
Presenter / Reporter
The "Darganator" is the most extreme member of the crew. Extreme fun, extreme humour, extreme everything.
If there's a fun angle to any of our stories, Dargan will find it. He knows how to party and keeping him under control is probably our biggest challenge here at Prom TV.
Presenter / Reporter / Creative Ideas Person
Rachie's also into skate culture and Hardcore Punk but also knows about fashion and decorations.
She's been on the Prom Night Events team for about a year and has seen lots of formals from different perspectives.
Presenter / Reporter / (Moral Booster)
Jimmy's into skate culture and Hardcore Punk but has also been on the Prom Night Events team for years and has been to heaps of formals.
He knows venues, he knows music, he knows inclusions. Jimmy just KNOWS! He's been to more formals than anyone on the Prom TV Crew so he's seen the best of everything.
Post Production / Editor / Fixer of others mistakes!
Taylor is responsible for compiling the tons of amazing material collected by the crew and putting it together into funky and cool segments and reports that make it easy and fun for you to get the facts.
She works with some pretty sophisticated systems and creates amazing effects.
Producer / Researcher / Presenter
Oftense (Offy) is responsible for sourcing the content that YOU want to see. All content broadcast on Prom TV must be approved by him.
He also coordinates location shoots and binds the crew together. He also steps in and presents when the mood is right.
Presenter / Reporter
Melissa couldn't wait to get started on the Prom TV project. She loves venues, loves events, loves fashion and loves TV.
In our opinion that makes her the perfect person to seek out those things and bring them to you. Melissa had the honour of presenting for Sydney Hilton on her very first Prom TV assignment.
Alex knows techo audio / cable / plug in thingies. We need that so he's kind of important to the team.
Aside from that he's got some amazing positive energy and things seem to go really well when he's around, so we're glad to have him on board.
- Executive Producer / Director / Crew Dad / Buyer of Hot Dogs
Of course Elliot gets to be on the crew - he owns the company, however he's also got loads of broadcast Radio & TV experience.
He's essentially the captain of the team and helps steer the content but leaves the creative side to the rest of the gang.
Things don’t always go perfectly during shoots, and in these cases, we actually have more fun…

Why can’t I say that?
You go first! No YOU go first!
Everyone carries roadcases
What did you say?
Smile for Budget-Cam
Hard stuff this TV star thing
Can we fit all this gear in one lift?
Please say something!
