Candlelit Pictures is a collective of filmmakers dedicated to sacrificing all else to make the best work they are creatively capable of.
Candlelit Pictures creates moving, intelligent, fun, beautiful films utilising innovative and industrious production methods. Candlelit Pictures harnesses youthful naivety and wild ambition to blow boundaries out of the water. Candlelit Pictures does not believe your means should dictate the quality of your work. We want to affect an audience, give them an emotional reaction, or provoke thought and discussion. The mediocre is banned. Art not ads.
Candlelit Pictures wishes to provide basic means for it's core members so they don't have to postpone their aspirations with day jobs. Financial gain is a bonus not a requirement.
Candlelit Pictures is inclusive and nonjudgemental believing that the first step towards being good at something is sucking pretty hard. Candlelit Pictures wants to provide opportunities to emerging filmmakers, filling a void for young creatives and crews between the DIY and big budget worlds. Candlelit Pictures is antiego, antihierarchy, antibullshit everyone's voice is valued and everyone is allowed to contribute. We encourage selfeducation by guided reading and sharing other resources for constant growth and discussion.
Treating the people we work with well is paramount to us. We offer our team the opportunity to work with established practitioners in their discipline, promoting people into roles we think they can nail, having the freedom in their job to add value and be creatively satisfied, and just having a good time we believe no one should be having a crap time making something amazing.
