We love all things film.

Photoplay is a boutique commercial production company. We are inspired by the limitless potential of storytelling in all its forms. We focus on smart, quality production whilst striving to create an inspiring home for creative talent. We believe in a world that is experimental, creative and fun.

Our work has been recognised with awards at Cannes, One Show, D&AD, Shots Ones to Watch, Creativity Online, permanent collection in ACMI, opening night screening at the Sydney Film Festival 2016 and screenings at the Centre du Georges Pompidou in Paris.
