We are currently in production with three new documentaries: IT STOPS WITH ME, a film about the booing of Indigenous footballer and former Australian of the Year, Adam Goodes; THE GENESIS, exploring the complexities of child protection, intergenerational poverty and homelessness in Australia; and THE OASIS – TEN YEARS LATER, a film reflecting on the past decade with the original participants from the multi-award winning documentary THE OASIS about Australia’s homeless youth, released in 2008.

We create extensive curriculum resources for educators and the secondary school sector, together with strategic outreach and community engagement campaigns to raise awareness and make a difference. Shark Island Productions builds strategic partnerships with foundations, philanthropists and not-for-profit organisations to connect with a broader audience and bring about sustainable change.
