We believe storytelling is the most powerful form of communication on the planet. 

With our commercial filmmaking, we work with companies to find human-centred, emotionally charged stories that inspire audiences and move them to action. We work with organisations to understand their corporate culture, their strengths, weaknesses and lay out how our unique creative process can either highlight or challenge market perceptions.

Odyssey Films also creates narrative fiction and documentary projects from script to screen. We seek to tell stories that dive into the vulnerabilities of what makes us human. To plot the conflicts and struggles of Australian life and showcase the unique beauty of our culture and landscape to the world.

The team also work with an established network of cinematographers, brand strategists, graphic designers, editors, and creatives, allowing them to bring to life stories of all sizes. Currently based in Sydney, Australia.
