Chris Richards-Scully - Managing Partner/Director
Car chases, kung fu fighting, alternate identities and covert operations were all realities of Chris’ life in the National Crime Authority. He brings this unique and extreme life experience to his directing.
Chris is an award-winning short film and TVC director. His short Icarus was sold to the SBS in Australia and the SyFy Channel in the USA. The film came to the attention of the producers of the TV series Farscape, who invited him to do a directing attachment on the series, which he quickly followed by another attachment on the TV series Parallax.
His twilight zone inspired film Iron Bird was the recipient of the Screenwest, Stepping Stone initiative. The very ambitious half hour war film was set mostly on a Lancaster Bomber in WWII. Chris and a small band of friends worked tirelessly completing all of the visual effects on their own and the film won numerous awards internationally.
As a writer/director, his film Kanowna won a Jury Award and the feature adaptation made it to the Top 50 in the Final Draft, Big Break Competition. He continues to develop multiple projects as well as directing commercials and creating corporate and social media content.
