Oombarra Productions is an award-winning content creation company working across film, TV, theatre and literature, which was founded by acclaimed actor and writer Leah Purcell, a proud Goa-Gunggari-Wakka Wakka Murri woman and her manager-producing partner Bain Stewart, a Traditional Owner of Quandamooka. Like many creative companies, Oombarra Productions was cycling through the economics of “feast or famine” due to the project life-cycle of scaling up and down productions.
Oombarra engaged Creative Economy to shift from a production-based company to a business that harnesses and exploits its creative assets across multiple media and publishing platforms. Creative Economy works with Oombarra to build their business capacity by implementing new business structures and taking a strategic approach to development and growth.
A true multi-media business, Oombarra has built on its achievements by telling stories across multiple content platforms. It has partnerships and deals with major players in the industry including; Fremantle Media, Foxtel, Network TEN, ABC, Penguin Random House, Hachette Livre, Screen Australia, Melbourne Theatre Company, and Belvoir Street Theatre.
