We are Monster & Bear, a boutique film and video production company based in Melbourne, Australia. And we're back, bigger and better, with a whole new look and some new faces, boasting a world-class roster of directors ready to push the limits of storytelling through film.

We specialise in creating compelling TVCs (audio-visual advertisements), branded content, social media, music videos, corporate, promo, educational and narrative films.
Monster & Bear is a Melbourne-based production company, founded by Sarah Hickey, Josh Mitchell-Frey and Ryan Bird in 2013. Since its establishment, the company has rapidly become known for high level production concepts, and a meticulous level of attention to detail in the commercial and narrative space.

To us, although our vehicle for storytelling is an unforgiving one, it’s a beast we love to wrangle. We aim high, challenge ourselves and work closely with our clients and collaborators to push the limits of what’s possible within such an exciting medium. It’s for this very reason that we stay on top of new technologies and embrace the ever changing platforms in which these stories can be shared.

 With a large network of collaborators on our side, we encourage any potential clients to reach out to see how we can nurture an idea - no matter how large or small. We are chameleons, able to scale up and down where required, working nimbly with those who like to take risks with us. We’re a team of “yessers” as we like to say.

 So, knowing the opportunities are endless, what’s next? Let’s catch up for a coffee (or a beverage? We won’t tell the boss…) to brainstorm how we can leverage your story, with our ability to tell stories.

 We don’t make videos. We make films.
