Q: Your company is called Corpstation. What does Corpstation do?
A: Corpstation is marketing and technology company that specialises in producing interactive solutions.
Q: Do you have any examples?
A: Many. Our most recent project is an Interactive Environmental Atlas that is being produced for the Environmental Agency of Abu Dhabi.
Its purpose is to bridge the gap between the scientific community and the general public when it comes to environmental data.
In other words, the Interactive Environmental Atlas will make complex statistical information accessible to everyone who views it.
It makes difficult scientific data easy to understand.
Q: Whereabouts in Dubai are you based?
A: We are based in Media City – just across the way from the The Palm Jemeira.
Q: And is your work exclusive to the UAE area?
A: Not at all. We are an international company.
Most of our work is done for member countries of the GCC – or Gulf Co-operation Council. This includes The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and – of course – the UAE.
We also do projects in Africa, though these are usually ordered by companies in the Middle East.
Q: What video projects have you worked on?
A: Most of our video projects have been done with Studio Rossiter, and these have mainly been corporate video’s and web video’s.
We have also done some television advertising work within the UAE.
Q: What’s your favourite aspect of the business?
A: I love to ‘wow’ clients by being creative with marketing.
Corporate video and web video production’s are very impressive and prestigious marketing tools.
Clients love them.
Q: What’s it like working with a UK video production supplier like Studio Rossiter?
A: It’s great.
Having a good relationship with such a professional, experienced and long standing company is very beneficial to Corpstation.
I have learned a lot about how the web video market work’s in the UK – as well as internationally.
Q: How do Studio Rossiter compare with other video production companies?
A: The people who work at Studio Rossiter are very friendly and are always ready to help.
As a company, I have always found them to be professional in their dealings and – most importantly – they always deliver.
Q: What are Corpstation’s goals for 2012?
A: We are hoping to take the great growth we experienced in 2011 to a new level.
This will be done mainly through our new e-learning and interactive products that will be based online.
We will still be active with other services. One big thing we will be doing in 2012 is a conference in Albania for the Islamic Development bank.
2011 was a good year for us – 2012 will be even better.
Q: Is there anything else you would like to add?
A: Just how proud we are to work with big names like the Abu Dhabi government, the Islamic Development Bank and the Arab Authority for Agricultural Investment and Development.
And how happy we are to have such a constructive relationship with a long established web video and corporate video production company like Studio Rossiter.
