Creative story development takes art, craft and heart. We nurture our Directors, taking the time to understand what they want to say and how they want to say it. And because of this, our carefully selected roster is fiercely proud of the content they make and how they make it. They’re humanity obsessed. Their work gives you that fierce little lump in your throat. It’s unapologetically funny. It makes you gasp with surprise. We continuously evolve our creative talent, while managing our more established directors, to ensure unmatched access to fresh and exciting creative solutions.
We call ourselves a global boutique production company, because that’s just what we are. 33 Directors across seven fully-serviced offices, on four continents: Los Angeles, London, Shanghai, Bangkok, Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne. Each office is customised for its local needs, while also functioning seamlessly as a global team.
We think you’ll like working with us. We’ll provide you with a uniquely experienced, agile and collaborative working environment. We’re passionate from start to finish. We'll always work hard and push the boundaries to pull off the best possible production.
Our Founding Partners, Paul Prince, Sharlene George and Melanie Bridge are three friends passionate about film making who met over 17 years ago. Together they formed the winning combination of marketing and sales, production and creative, and set up boutique production company Sweetshop. The company grew very quickly, expanding the roster of talent it managed and setting up a head office in New Zealand. The name Sweetshop conjured up all the colours and emotions of positivity, fun, excitement, memories and abundance.
Paul, Sharlene and Melanie’s vision has grown a three-person start-up, into a multi-awarded, seven-office global production company. A company whose work captures the energy and emotions of the human experience through craft and storytelling. A company that truly values the people that are part of this unique globally local network. And a company whose ethical conscience is integral to everything we engage in. These values remain today a living and breathing part of Sweetshop. We hire by them, we operate by them and we succeed because of them.
We’re decent humans and we care. We work ethically to support communities locally and internationally. And we really mean it. From the way we operate our business and productions, to the causes we align ourselves with.
