We're video production company with a team of journalists and videographers with decades of combined experience covering major stories around the world for Australia’s biggest commercial broadcasters.

Mac Lyon
Founder | Chief Storyteller 

Born and raised in the River City, Brisbane will always be close to my heart. I grew up on a small acreage property in the leafy semi-rural suburb of Bunya, climbing trees, riding motorbikes and exploring the wonders of our wild backyard with my two brothers. Come school holidays, we’d load up the Landcruiser and travel the far reaches of Queensland and beyond. 


At school, I found my calling early. A Grade One public speaking competition ignited my love for spinning a yarn and captivating an audience - a passion that would only intensify with every English oral and Student Council election that followed. When it came to choosing a career it was mum who suggested journalism. Three years later, approaching my last semester at QUT, I was offered a dream job with 7News in Cairns. 


My career in TV would see me hop around the state from the Far North, to the Sunshine Coast and down to the Goldy, before finally returning to Brisbane as the State’s Crime Reporter. During my seven years at Seven I bore witness to the best and worst of humanity and the might of mother nature covering cyclones, floods, fires, shark attacks, Dreamworld’s ride tragedy and New Zealand’s volcano disaster.


Whether reporting on murders or miracles, my favourite part of the job was always meeting interesting people and sharing their stories. While my locks may be a little longer and my cheeks and chin a little hairier, my passion for storytelling hasn’t changed - only my mission now is to spread positivity with each story.

From sleeping in the back of a news truck on the side of the road to the luxury of a 6 star hotel in Hong Kong. From battling torrential rain in Tropical North Queensland to soaking up breathtaking sunsets in the outback. From the grief and devastation of mass murder to dressing up as Santa and waving from the news helicopter. In the process of news gathering I have witnessed the vast spectrum of human experience. 

Spending 14 years as a full time news camera operator taught me many valuable skills. Contending with the elements in unpredictable environments and under tight time constraints - technical troubleshooting becomes second nature. Shooting in the field on the fly, I can creatively and efficiently film to capture the components needed to produce an interesting story.

Working alongside some of Australia’s best broadcast crew I have enjoyed witnessing the huge effort that goes into creating observational documentaries, reality TV, lifestyle and current affair programs.
