Think Films is a production studio based in Adelaide born from one person’s life-changing commitment and passion to demonstrate solutions to some of our most pressing global problems through films and other media. Films and multimedia that change perceptions, create inspiration and drive positive social change.
We love documentaries and believe they have the power to shift public opinion, mobilise support and inspire action. We know that documentaries help make social change. We also provide a range of complementary, expertise-backed services.
Award winning producer/director Lara Damiani is the driving force behind Think Films. At 23, Lara was the youngest female to hold a senior management position in the Australian fishing industry and was one of the key players behind what is now the Australian Fisheries Academy. At 28, disillusioned with the corporate world, Lara gave it all up to travel the world and write. Ten years later, with no formal training, she directed, produced and distributed her first film – a 52 minute documentary about Tibet for which she secured an exclusive interview with the Dalai Lama. Lara was one of the early instigators of Impact Campaigning and Impact Partner Network Development.
Lara’s worked in remote places of the world for various international NGOs including UNDP, World Bank, Relief International and more. She’s had more than 13 years of experience across all sectors of production, post production, impact work and distribution.
Think Films is the culmination of her journey.
Think Films is a production studio passionate about compelling stories that can drive social change. We’re also passionate about being part of the solutions that bring about positive change through our commitment to diversity, inclusion and the global SDG’s. We love working with passionate, purpose-driven like-minded people to develop new projects.
