Chris Tarpey

Born in the UK and raised in New Zealand, Chris Tarpey has made his mark across the digital stratosphere.

With a Diploma in Film and Television Production, the kiwi technophile has been working in the TV industry for over three years. This work involves live studio shows, vision mixing, international sports broadcasting, editing, advertising and quality control.

Chris established Coast Media in 2008 with a focus on promotional video and digital marketing. His creative team of videography and marketing professionals make every project something special.

Amongst social media-focussed freelancers, Chris utilises multiple digital marketing techniques to set himself apart.

Chris’ drive has resulted in a successful web series and collaborations with Coca Cola, Sony Playstation, Hardy’s, YMCA as well as universities and international speakers.

Coast Media recently rebranded as Chris’ leadership skills and the ability to maintain strong relationships with clients made this a natural transition.

Chris’ desire to travel has seen him working remotely across the globe. This ambition has taken him from the Canadian Rockies to London, UK.

Chris returned to New Zealand in October, 2013 and is currently working on contract with Sky Television.

In his spare time, Chris enjoys live music, futurology, new media, indie filmmaking, fashion and pop culture.

I’ve employed Chris Tarpey for a number of projects over the past 12 months. He came highly recommended by industry colleagues and they were right to suggest him. Aside from his obvious technical talents, he is also a really good guy to work with.  He’s friendly, efficient, hard working and always up for a challenge.  We’re the type of company that gives only a small amount of direction and a lot of scope / freedom to be creative and he always excels.  The end results have been fantastic – professional, slick and convey exactly the messages we’re looking for.  This is a long term partnership, as far as we’re concerned!

I have used Chris in my business for around two years. During this time he has not only filmed our seminars, he has edited them, developed a 3D logo, helped to store and manage our digital media, been responsible for organising our filming through others, and has been a wealth of great advice, suggestions, ideas, improvements and more. We will use him always as our first port of call in these areas. I could not recommend him highly enough, from our perspective he has been a key component of our international success.

Chris and his team have worked with Nature Baby to film several of our busy in store events, and we have been delighted with the results. Planning, set up and filming have been simple to arrange and the Coast Media team always ensured our customers and staff were made to feel comfortable during filming. We would happily recommend Chris to other businesses.
