Filmmaking Fire

For two decades, Film Construction has been at the centre of television commercial making in Australasia. Those skills are also now focused on wider filmmaking projects and naturally, many of them involve working with advertising agencies and brands. Broadcasters working with sponsors are often staggered by the detail and control required by marketing and advertising teams, and that's where our years of experience come in.

 

We understand what it takes to balance the needs of a network, a client, and the audience. And we work with some of the best filmmakers in Australasia.

 

If you are keen to discuss how we can work together let's chat.

Two Flowers

When we love, celebrate, or grieve, we do so with flowers in our hand.

 

Director Harriett Maire has created a documentary short that is both visually beautiful and insightful. TWO FLOWERS follows the journey of a bloom from cutting to bouquet to the moment it wilts, while exploring what different flowers mean to different people.

Single/Single - Breadcrumbs

Single/single marries Harriett Maire's two great passions together - film and theatre. These videos are of one take, with the actor looking down the barrel of the lens.The power of this project is in the way that the character breaks the fourth wall without the audience feeling put on the spot. Instead of feeling confronted, the audience should feel like the character is sharing something special with them, and only them. The scripts come from many different places - some are from plays, others from films, some from books of poetry, and some have been written by the performers themselves.
