Producers Cyna Strachan and Liam Heyen first met when they were paired up at AFTRS, and had to produce a short film together. Luckily they liked each-other, and enjoyed working together - and thus Mad Ones was born. Since graduating, they have championed and sought out exciting emerging talent to work with, producing a catalogue of Short Films and Music Videos.
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 the prestigious SXSW Film Festival in 2017. Other festivals include Melbourne International Film Festival, Iris Film Festival, New Orleans Film Festival and Flickerfest to name a few. In 2019 we premiered ‘Strangers’ at Sydney Film Festival - a short film which was funded by 2018 Lexus Short Film Fellowship.
