WISE productions is an Aboriginal female driven creative arts and film production company. Ljudan Michaelis-Thorpe writer/producer/director has combined forces with business manager Roxanne Smith to create WISE productions.
It is more than your average film production company. We are both passionate about creating opportunities for our mob especially women to advance their digital storytelling skills and further their development as screen practitioners.
We want to see Aboriginal stories created for screen to be led by our people both in front of and behind the lens – and especially as viable pathways for business and remuneration.
Our company offers training in business development through our funded programs, attachments for Aboriginal women on our film projects and internships for hands on professional development.
We currently have a diverse slate of projects at different stages of development, from documentary features, to drama televisions series and drama features.
