The Season is a new original TV series produced by Black Fox Productions ,which follows the lives of six modern day Australian hunters as they prepare for their hunting season.

Whether in the ponderous form of a River Red Gum or the towering majesty of a Mountain Ash, eucalypts define the character of the Australian bush. No other tree is so synonymous with the nature of our continent.

The Eucalypt series explores these trees’ evolution and ecology, their intimate connection with Indigenous Australians, their role in art and craftsmanship, and their future in a changing world.



Throughout history Hair has been a potent symbol of passion, prejudice and protest.

It’s a badge of belonging, a sign of individuality, a symbol of national pride. Our hair tells the World who we are, where we belong or who we want to be.

Passion, Prejudice & Protest is a 60 minute documentary dedicated to the evolution, impact and history of human hair. A journey into style, religion, colour and myths around hair, and its importance across generations, culture and history.


Imagine paddling solo, 50 miles for 17 days, during the most shark-infested summer Australia has ever seen. Endurance athlete and child abuse survivor Damien Rider took matters into his own hands to find peace and face his inner demons. On what many thought to be an impossible journey, he set off paddling 800km solo without support crew on a paddleboard, propelled by just his hands, from his home in Coolangatta to Bondi Beach in Sydney.


Damien Rider’s endurance challenges are all epic, unique and designed to grab the attention of those who most need to hear his story. Damien has skateboarded across Route 66, run and paddled non-stop around Phuket, ridden a 1950’s rickshaw over 260kms and pushed a 2 tonne vehicle for over 40kms on Australia’s Gold Coast. Each of these events grabbed global headlines and helped thrust his cause into the spotlight. Rise Above chronicles his journey to bring awareness to childhood abuse, while completing some of the most challenging endurance feats to date.

Mipcom – New releases

By business, news

Straight off the back of a busy Mipcom, we are excited to unveil our new content released exclusively at the 2020 online event.

We are thrilled to be partnering once again with the Division Productions and Mark Worman, to distribute two brand new series straight from the garage and brains behind Graveyard Carz.

14th Street Wheels is a homage to your youth, a time when kids tinkered in the garage rather than with tik tok. In this series Mark and Cousin Dougie find anything with wheels or an engine, explore its history and build it. You can follow along at home for a DIY experience, or sit back for a trip down memory lane. Fun and family friendly, 14th Street Wheels will educate, inspire and entertain!

Mark’s used-car-salesman persona arrives at the forefront in Graveyard Dreamz. Set in a 70’s inspired car yard, Mark and his dream team promise to search for the prized car of your youth. Maybe it was your first ride, maybe your Dad’s pride and joy. If they can’t find the original from your heyday, they’ll build a replica! Dreams are bought back to life in this treasure hunt for Mopar originals.

And if that’s not enough for your auto loving audience, an all new season of Graveyard Carz is now available world wide.

Turning to our documentary slate and we offer two new heart-warming tales exploring the spirit of humanity and the determination of humans to facilitate significant change and growth – both personally, and as role models for those around them.

A Head Full of Doubt, takes in seven years of the incredible success of the B.A.M program in Chicago. Previously considered the murder capital of America, this engaging documentary showcases the beauty that comes from mentoring youth in a city that needs it most. Curated and developed by Tony DiVittorio, and inspired by his youth without a father figure, the B.A.M program has made headlines world wide for its encouragement and guidance of kids on the border of adulthood.

Shot across three continents and over a five year journey, The World’s Best Film follows twelve individuals striving for greatness. Thailand gives us the World’s best taxi driver while in Sweden we are introduced to the World’s best town planner. This is a traveling tale celebrating the human endeavor to be the best you can be. Fun, quirky and possibly The World’s Best Film!


This year has produced many things. The greatest, we think, is the many stories emerging, telling tales of community spirit and collaboration. Helping the vulnerable and passing it forward, during what has been a difficult and unprecedented time for businesses and us as humans.

We have curated some of the best Covid stories in our new Short Content selection. Food Forward delivers three short documentaries shining a light on businesses adapting to the pandemic driven food supply chain issues, in the US. Highlighting three sectors – The Plate, The Sea and The Farm – Food Forward delivers on all fronts, with stories of community and businesses coming together to help each other survive.

Straight from a remote Navajo community, comes a story of survival in Covid Nations. When an Australian naturopath and herbalist, finds herself in the centre of an indigenous community with limited health facilities, she rolls up her sleeves and begins educating and steering the group through the only pandemic any of them have known.

Covid Nations articulates the many challenges of remote communities navigating Covid with little access to mainstream healthcare. Beautifully shot, this short documentary is a thought-provoking tale, offering an alternative viewpoint of the 2020 story.
