ABOUT US

OUR COMPANY

Producing compelling content is our calling. As an integrated creative and content agency, we help broadcasters and brands reach their target audience by bringing ideas to life through the art of storytelling. We do things a little differently. We don’t just produce original long and short form content, we also create meaningful audience experiences through effective content marketing strategies across multimedia platforms to further engage and build a stronger fan base.

Made up of a group of proven and veteran talents with diverse media experiences and capabilities, Refinery Media is able to provide end-to-end content solutions by applying a cross-disciplinary approach in all our projects and productions. Our in-house team has the ability to create bespoke packages and branded video content for specific client needs. We understand our clients because we think like you.

Refinery Media’s firm belief and emphasis on high production values and the quality of its end products have earned the team several nominations for its original multiplatform creation, SupermodelMe, including Best Cross Platform Content (2012), Best Host (2014) and Best Reality Show (2014) at the Asian Television Awards, Best Digital Non-Fiction Program at the International Digital Emmy Awards (2013), Best Editing at Apollo Awards (2014 & 2015). SupermodelMe is now an international series spanning a total of five successful seasons that have been screened across Asia Pacific, the U.S. and Canada.

Connect with us! We love innovative ideas and collaborations with like-minded partners – whether it is with organizations or individuals. We believe that no idea is ever too wild, and no concept too ambitious, as long as we get to create content that truly resonates with audiences.
