Based on Sydney’s North Shore, we offer a wide range of production services to meet both small and large scale productions. Our work ranges from directing live events, producing and filming documentaries, corporate films, sports and News programs and supplying production crews and HD Wireless camera links to clients. Below is a recent production we shot for The Australian Ballet.
Throughout the last few years, we have been involved in a huge array of productions around the world. Recently, we worked with Sunset + Vine directing the ISAF Sailing World Cup in Melbourne, filming the XCAT World Series in the Middle East & The Gold Coast and directing the global coverage of The Extreme Sailing Series for RedHanded Television.
Michael also filmed the official documentary on the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Race for IMG and worked with BT Sport on the coverage of the 2017 / 2018 Ashes Series.

In 2018, the ABC Classic FM 100 Countdown showcased the brilliant diversity and vivid colour of music that makes you want to dance. To celebrate, three of the Australian Ballets dancers created new works to three of the top 10 tracks. Michael was DOP for this production which was voted number one in the #Classic100 Dance.
Michael has also continued working with the Sydney Opera House, directing the 9 hour broadcast of All About Women, Beethoven’s Piano Concertos 3, 4 & 5 for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Gurrumul with the SSO and recently talks with British comedian Jennifer Saunders, Arianna Huffington and Stephen Hawking live via hologram on the concert hall stage.
