Find out more information about Cabana Productions!
Cabana Productions came from humble beginnings. Starting with just our founder, Adam, who used to create short films from his house nicknamed “The Cabana”. Adam has always had a passion for the arts - acting in his youth and then progressing to behind-the-scenes tech at a well-known theatre company. After having to go through major back surgery, his filmmaking was a crucial outlet of art therapy to help him focus on his recovery as well as battling his PTSD.
As well as Adam, our team member Wayne has been an important part of Cabana’s progression. Adam met Wayne while filming a short film documenting “Tjilbruke - Trail of tears”, the Kaurna Dreaming story. They became close friends and Wayne was the first person to join the team. Wayne is an indigenous man from the Ngarrindjeri Nation. We have worked on many different projects with First Nations People and have formed a strong bond with the traditional stories of Australia.
Any one of our amazing team members could tell you why it’s great working with us, but why not ask one of our fantastic clients?
We have worked with the Marilyn Jetty Swim for many years, which allowed us to share in their experience of setting a new Guinness World Record for the largest crowd of people dressed as Marilyn Monroe (254), while documenting their progress in raising funds for the Cancer Council.
We have also had a long-standing partnership with Foodbank SA, filming events, charity donation food drives, cooking classes, and much more.
We are the official media film crew for the National Rugby League of South Australia (NRLSA), filming all of their games, which have been viewed across the globe. We were also the official production team for Brighton Jetty Sculptures for a number of years.
In 2018 we were commissioned to create a documentary for the former mayor of Holdfast bay, Ken Rollond, on his Mother and Baby dolphin sculpture that now stands at the corner of Broadway and the Esplanade in Glenelg.
In 2020 we experienced a number of Milestones; we were commissioned by National Indigenous Television (NITV) to produce a documentary on one of Australia’s most significant indigenous buildings, and we won the award for Professional Services and Inclusion Support Business at the Onkaparinga ‘ON Business Awards’ in both 2020 and 2021 and won the inaugural Best Marketing, Design or Media Agency in 2022 .
At Cabana we value diversity; all of our team members are diverse in their own way, whether physically, culturally, or mentally. However, that hasn't stopped us from being passionate about what we do and using our various skills and talents in creating our projects. At Cabana, it's important to us to offer equal opportunity to all.
You will never find a more passionate group of people when it comes to filmmaking and video production. No matter when or how each one of us has joined the team, we’ve all been given equal opportunities which has allowed us to produce the best projects we can - which we believe is what it’s all about!
Our favourite thing to do is tell stories; each team member has their own creative flair and style, so you can guarantee that any film made by us will be nothing short of exceptional.
From screen-writing, to directing, to video editing, to CGI; our team has all the pieces of the puzzle to make projects come alive. Need a dragon to fly through the sky? We can make it happen.
Although we are based in South Australia, traveling statewide, we have also been lucky enough to bring our skills interstate. We've had opportunities to work with clients in Perth and Melbourne, but the end goal is to make Cabana an Australia-wide industry.
