At CY Film Productions we aim to Inspire Change Through Visual Storytelling and Characterisation. We create films that explore the hardships  and glamour of life, the resilience of communities, and the spirit of humanity. We tell our own stories and with our experience will work with clients to achieve their goals to reach an audience to promote their brand.

We are interested in telling stories…

  • Stories about characters that are doomed by their environment but are striving to break through the web of the precarious world they find themselves in.
  • Stories about characters that live for something deep within their meagre existence.
  • Stories about characters that rise above all odds to become what they want to be.
