Candid Films is a Sydney-based production company that creates commercials, digital and corporate content, film and television.
We thrive on collaborating with agencies, brands, creatives and filmmakers to deliver a wide array of quality, captivating screen content. Since 2011, our work has received prestigious awards including Cannes Lion, Spikes Asia, BEFest, Effie and various national and international film festival laurels.
Fully independent, we carefully source the best creative and production teams to meet each brief, aiming to bridge the gap between creatives with no funding for their ideas and brands seeking quality, innovative, content to feed their hungry social platforms.
We also have a passion for documenting and dramatising all aspects of real-life story - from the humble one-on-one interview to a fully-fledged feature film production.
We make commercials, branded content, corporate content, music video and film for a variety of budgets - big and small.
Our clients include numerous creative agencies and direct clients for whom we have delivered TVC's and content for high profile brands that include, Audi, Sunsense, QV Skincare, Panadol, Air New Zealand, ING Direct, Huggies, Sol Beer, Harley Davidson, Hahn Superdry, Milo, Hyundai and Benefit Cosmetics. A few of these projects have been hugely rewarding from gaining major industry recognition or generating real results such as increasing funding and public awareness for brain cancer research.
We love it when the work, works.
Our corporate clients include Telstra, Boston Consulting Group, Lend Lease, MYOB and Charter Hall, and are always fantastic to work with.
One of our key passions is film, and we use our connections in this field to bring premium production professionals to the teams delivering our commercial work. We are constantly collaborating and developing our own short and feature film projects as they provide the opportunity to develop creatively and nurture up-and-coming creatives and production crew. Our online film, Room 317, received over 1million views on YouTube in less than a week and our other short films have screened globally receiving numerous festival laurels including Best Film and Best Director. Currently, we have two feature films in development, both of which are based on true stories, and we are always looking for long and short-form scripts in this genre.
Our day job involves meeting and collaborating with a wide variety of talented Directors, so we always know who to put forward for a brief. Some of our preferred Directors are outlined here, but ask us who we'd recommend for your project.
We always respond to a commercial production brief with a budget, schedule and a premium Directors Treatment.
We are always looking for collaborators to develop new work with.
