What we do

We are HyperActive, an Ottawa-based, Canadian-owned visual communications firm in business since 1992. We specialize in visual media production, brand development, e-learning services, strategic marketing and branding consultation for government, business, and the voluntary sector.

We offer high quality, high-definition/4K/VR video production using the most contemporary equipment, innovative techniques in both production and post-production. We also offer innovative web/social development, tools, and applications, and a full-range of e-learning curriculum and systems for existing or purpose-built LMS/LCMS.

We build outward from a solid foundation of research and commit to the relentless pursuit of excellence. Our unique strength is our ability to move from need to strategy to execution with high energy, innovation, and more than a little magic.

Testimonialssuccess stories

  • When we cast out our net seeking a video company that would be able to provide an appropriate recruiting video, we knew HyperActive would be the prize catch, and your company really showed why you are among the best in the country. I was very impressed with how HyperActive was able to accurately represent our environment and needs and how they created a compelling, believable story.

Initially, in my role as Director of Development for The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, and more recently in my role as former Director of Advancement for Lakeridge Health Foundation, we asked HyperActive to help us support the rebrand and reposition of our hospital through video.

  • The Canadian Red Cross, International Operations, employed the services of HyperActive to produce a 15-minute video and booklet profiling the CRC Emergency Response Unit deployed to Ormoc, Philippines in response to Typhoon Haiyan. Both resources were well-received by the CRC and the Philippines Red Cross. The work was successfully completed by the HyperActive team and it was a very pleasant experience to work with them.

  • We’ve worked with HyperActive since 2001, creating a number of national multimedia programs from career awareness and innovative websites to marketing and video productions. As partners in planning and executing strategic communications support, this company is quite simply one of the best we have ever worked with. Their listening skills are as keen as their ability to create memorable campaigns and their insight into our sector and our needs as a Council continues to impress us.
