Mad Ones Films (sort of) began when producers Cyna Strachan and Liam Heyen were paired up during the first practical film making class at AFTRS, and had to produce a short film together. Luckily they liked each-other, and seemed to enjoy working together. Since then, despite both holding down full time work they have continued to produce together, and have championed and sought out exciting emerging talent to work with. Our short films have played at top film festivals internationally including 'Adult' directed by Jamieson Pearce, based off a Christos Tsiolkas short story which premiered at prestigious SXSW Film Festival in 2017. Other festivals include Melbourne International Film Festival, Iris Film Festival and Flickerfest to name a few. In 2019 we will premiere ‘Strangers In The Night’ a short film which was funded by the 2018 Lexus Short Film Fellowship.
