  • Livestreaming – The Picaluna Panel

    Flat Rock Media - Marketing Livestreaming Social Content Audio Video Production Sydney

    The Picaluna Panel was an evening of questions and answers debating the funeral of the future with a group of industry leaders and an invited audience. Held at UTS in Sydney for our client Picaluna Funerals, we organised and produced the event, as well as presenting and moderating it on the night.

    We livestreamed the event in HD to the Picaluna Facebook page where we were able to take questions from external viewers and interact in real time. We used a professional multi-shot camera, audio mixing desk and mics for each participant, plus a PA system and wireless roving mic for the audience.

  • Social Media – Picaluna Funerals

    Flat Rock Media - Marketing Livestreaming Social Content Audio Video Production Sydney

    Flat Rock Media runs the social media channels for Picaluna Funerals across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn.

    From a zero start, we created and built a community of followers made up of two distinct audiences; Celebrants and the public. With pages and groups targeted at each, we’ve established a thriving online debate and discussion. Using metrics and tracking, we can report back with useful statistics.

    We create and curate content for each channel, leveraging each to best effect. The majority of that content is produced in-house and is a mixture of photographs, blogs, videos, events and Facebook Live broadcasts.

    We’ve also shot and edited features for online distribution. Here’s one example:

    This story was picked up by parenting website Mamamia and it reached a huge online audience.


    Megan Baker woke from her C-section to the news every parent dreads. She tells Picaluna how she’s now helping other mums in the same situation.

    She’s sharing the story of her son, Kai, and how simply using his name is so important. Kai was stillborn and Megan’s journey as a bereaved mother has led her to use her experiences to help others in a similar situation.

    • Family-led creative funerals are vital

    • Mother and baby photography keeps precious memories alive

    • Acknowledging motherhood essential for healing

    Picaluna is a network of civil celebrants and professional planners that work together with families to create a more authentic funeral experience. We aim to revolutionise the funeral industry by offering families more bespoke experiences, minus the high costs and cookie-cutter processes of traditional funeral companies.

I think Dave says it all!A very proud moment today for our team. 📷 Here's a behind the scenes snap (blurred for privacy) of today's funeral service NZ/SYD (two side of the family) link up live stream. Our client (the NZ family) wanted to feel like they were in the room with their Sydney daughter and sister (the deceased) and did not want to take the chance with 'DIY' link up, nor did they want poor quality picture/audio and lag. So we were engaged to help them produce the following result. We setup a mixture of 2 x LCD screens, with our own dedicated speaker system, lectern, mic and handheld audio. Profile stage wash lighting for lectern (to help with the sun-spill over the back of the lectern to bring up the front lighting on the presenters. We had a crew of 4 operators focussed on: - Connectivity and stream control to TWO platforms (zoom for speaking guests) and Vimeo live stream for all non speaking guests. - Vision switch 3 ways: (1) Controlling what's in the room in Sydney (2) what gets sent to the stream in NZ (3) What goes to Vimeo Stream for the guests online. - Audio engineer with mixing console and EQ to ensure that there's no feedback in Sydney or online streams. - Live stream eulogies from NZ for three people. - Content playback machines for any pre-recorded eulogies / slideshows / music. - 3 cameras on wireless link back to main switch, allowing three professional angles to cover lectern close / wide and audience / room shot. - Production management and 'call sheet' with around 6 pages of detailed show run order. A testimonial received by the Funeral Celebrant is also attached... A big thanks to Picaluna & Flat Rock Media Stephen Lee for entrusting us in this project as we love helping families in this difficult time. ... See MoreSee Less

Busy with funeral webcasting at the moment. COVID19 restrictions on the number of people present mean livestreaming is really helping families.
