Sydney's Flint film and stills production eyes Asia

Screen Shot 2018-02-12 at 11.37.00 am.jpgAfter a successful 18 months in the Australian market, Sydney-based Flint has begun to catch the eye of agencies and clients abroad including Asia.

Flint was started by film producer Tim Berriman along with award winning and renowned photographer Andreas Smetana, with the aim of providing dedicated stills and film production for their talented group of photographers who also direct. The team includes Toby Dixon, Jon Bader, Jonathan May, Adrian Brown, and David Maurice Smith.

For Smetana, forming Flint was a natural progression. After directing various content as part of combined stills and motion campaigns and working on a personal documentary series called 'In the Open', Smetana, along with good friend and experienced TVC producer Tim Berriman, saw the potential in combining this growing demand for film, with the day-to-day photography work.

Tim Berriman, executive producer at Flint, explains, "There has been a rapid growth in the industry for combining stills and film elements together in one package. The work we are now briefed on can extend to stills, TVC, web content, digital billboards, pre-rolls, cinemagraphs and memes, so to have the capacity to produce both photography and film under one roof, with the same talent, is a great advantage."

Berriman brings over 20 years experience in the TVC industry, half of which was spent in London in agencies, and more recently as a senior producer at Luscious International. Rachel Henderson, Smetana's producer for over 10 years works alongside talented producer Rachel Rider who joined Flint from Leo Burnett Sydney.

Recently, Flint has been working on major campaigns that require both stills and motion for the likes of Qantas, Bridgestone, Westpac, Comm Bank, Hungry Jacks, and Subway. Whilst stills and motion combined are the majority of the work they have been doing, Flint are also producing a growing list of stand alone TVC and digital content work.
