Wind & Sky Productions is a regionally based independent documentary company specialising in stories of community, culture, history, and science.
We excel at working collaboratively with organisations and individuals to produce high quality productions. We adopt innovative extensions to documentary storytelling using written essays, images, digital exhibitions, and live events to engage audiences.
Known for our surprising stories about real people our award-winning work is distributed online, has toured international festivals, is screened at dedicated events and is on permanent display at museums and cultural institutions.
Our story telling creates marvellous collaborations between individuals, companies, organisations, community groups and experts. We have formed many wonderful and long-lasting relationships over the years as we have endeavoured to share people’s stories to audiences in Australia and around the world. We look forward to what our next story brings.
We take on commissions and also produce self-driven projects where we develop story concepts, source funding, and bring together project partners and collaborators. We work with our partners to help achieve beautiful, thoughtful productions within the scope and available budget. We also often tie our productions to live events such as screenings and Q&A sessions.
If you have a short film idea or you want your story told talk to us. We may be able to make your idea a reality.
How we work
We believe the best way to engage an audience is to focus on storytelling. Whether the purpose is educational, informational or promotional, sharing real life experiences helps audiences connect, and brings truth and heart to the story.
Production values are important to us. We work on a select number of projects and give our full attention to each one. We are artisans, not factory workers. We base our core production values on the quality and integrity of the final product and not just on economic realities.
We keep our costs down and the quality up through streamlined systems. Productions are kept on track by our transparent reporting and reviewing process.
At Wind & Sky Productions we care about people, projects, stories and social responsibility.
We have a strong interest in stories of history and social change with an emphasis on those stories that promote acceptance of diversity and co-operation above partisan conflict.
People are important. We like to collaborate, to teach and to learn. We know collaboration can be prickly, difficult, and hard work. We also know that great projects come about from great collaboration, so the effort is worthwhile.
The story is the thing. It’s always about the story.
We want every project to be as good as it can be. We want it to run as smoothly as it can. We want each project to push us creatively. And we want every project to make a difference, to be virtuous in some way, to have meaning. We want our productions to change people’s lives.
A company is not judged just by what it produces but also by how it produces. We aim to produce content and act to further the social and environmental good of our community. We aim to engage with like-minded groups at every level of our production.
We keep the Company and we are the Company we keep.
