QUEENSLAND COMPANY, LIKE A PHOTON CREATIVE SET TO PRODUCE THEIR AUSSIE FEATURE FILMS IN BRISBANE STUDIO



Innovative Queensland start-up, Like A Photon Creative, is set to develop three “Aussie” animated feature films for international distribution from their new Brisbane-based animation studio, all with the support of the Palaszczuk Queensland Government.

Like A Photon Creative (LAPC) is a fast-growing content creation company building an international reputation for creating ground-breaking children’s screen content, and specialising in the development and execution of children’s content.

The Queensland company led by Kristen Souvlis and Nadine Bates is now working across live-action and animation in television and feature films, while also developing innovative apps and platforms for children’s content.

LAPC will soon produce The Wishmas Tree and Combat Wombat from their new Brisbane studio over 50 Queensland practitioners on each feature, and will also offer significant mentoring opportunities to upskill local creative practitioners. The film will be directed by LAPC’s Ricard Cusso Judson alongside Matt Everitt as consulting animation director (The Lego Batman Movie). Screen Australia has invested in the production.

The Queensland Government via Screen Queensland has supported other LAPC projects including Balloon Barnyard, an animated children’s television series commissioned by Disney Australia.

In 2014, LAPC became only the second Australian company to produce for Sesame Street USA, as well as the first female Australian writers and producers for the channel.
