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 seemed to enjoy working together - and thus Mad Ones was born. Since graduating, then 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 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’ at Sydney Film Festival - a short film which was funded by 2018 Lexus Short Film Fellowship.
