Company principal Steve Thompson has worked continuously in the Film and Television industry since 1971 and over that period has worked on a diverse range of assignments in most regions of Australia and in many overseas locations. Since moving into the freelance market in 1985 his work has principally centred on producing, directing & shooting client-direct commercials and corporate productions. Steve also works purely as a Director of Photography on various commercial, documentary and corporate projects.


He is dedicated to achieving and maintaining high professional standards. Having developed a reputation for creative and technical reliability during his career he has established a comprehensive network of associates within the industry.


Steve has extensive experience with most types of camera equipment both film & digital ranging from 35mm to handicams. His long involvement with post production has given him a comprehensive knowledge of most techniques both contemporary and traditional. His background as a film & non-linear editor has also allowed him a greater insight into story telling and cutting techniques.
