With heavy hearts we recognize the devastating impact the bush fires have had on many communities across the country. We reflect on the loss of lives, homes, livelihood, landscapes and wildlife. We extend gratitude and thanks to all those involved in fighting the fires and supporting communities impacted. To all our families, friends and Australian colleagues we are thinking of you – stay safe over the coming months.
Looking forward, we move into January with renewed enthusiasm and new goals for 2020. This month we reset, and focus on new projects, scope for opportunities and foster partnerships – new and existing.
It’s these new partnerships that bring us our first new release for the year. A film five years in the making and shot across three continents, ambitiously titled The World’s Best Film.
Produced by Australian Joshua Belinfante, the quirky and off beat documentary searches the world for those brave enough to pursue their passions and become the very best in their chosen field.
We also love working with homegrown talent, who are passionate about bringing uniquely Australian stories to audiences. Upcoming series, Chronicles X, takes a genre-bending look at some of Australia’s most curious locations. This new format melds podcast with first hand interviews and down right spooky shenanigans set in infamous locations. Chronicles X, is one for those with a love of history and a healthy curiosity for the paranormal. Keep an eye out for Chronicles X updates over on our facebook page or follow @chroniclesx_tv on insta.
Auto documentary FLATS from Australian entrepreneur Nigel Petrie and Matte Media, takes in the spectacular Great Ocean Road on Australia’s south coast and drives you through to the Lake Gardiner Salt Flats, in South Australia. Set against this stunning backdrop, FLATS is the story of one man’s dream to design and build the ultimate Salt Flat racer in pursuit of the land speed record.
Up in the Northern Territory, you can join the boys from Black As while they hunt for adventure and a good feed in Arnhem Land. Survive the crocs, eat bush tucker and take a wild ride in an off beat and off track, bush bash!
In 2020, our flagship automotive series Graveyard Carz will reach new heights with the release of it’s 12th season, now screening on Motortrend in the USA. “Christine”, a 1958 Plymouth Fury, steals the show – so this season is going to be killer!
Another highlight from 2019, was the premiere of football diversity and inclusion documentary series Be Dragons on Fox Sports Australia, to an overwhelming public response. We were thrilled and humbled to help bring this series to life and into the screens and hearts of millions of Australians.
Returning to the year ahead, we are on the look out to expand our partnerships with producers both here and abroad. We always work with passionate content creators, who have both talent and great stories to share and this year is no different.
We are keenly interested in human-interest documentaries with social relevance and would love to hear about your projects. Get in touch and we can have chat about your content.
