Dramatising and 

 documenting real life.

People are by nature complex, fascinating and surprising, so our projects focus on telling real human stories through a variety of formats. We do this by collaborating with creatives, agencies and filmmakers to produce authentic narratives embedded in universally relatable themes. 

Our key disciplines:  

- Documentary

- Based on True Story Drama

- Corporate (B2B) People Stories

- Branded Content (using non-actors)


We want our audiences, no matter what the medium or genre, to be inspired by the content and maybe even recognise themselves. Ultimately, we seek to evoke emotion and entertain by allowing audiences to experience diverse perspectives and spark conversations.

We are are based in Sydney, Australia. For all enquiries please contact our Executive Producer.
