Enigma Machine P/L's slate comprises documentary, feature film and television drama. We sometimes collaborate with visual artists working in film, photography and code and make films commissioned by private entities. 

With everything we do, it is the compelling idea or the originality of the story or thinking behind the work that fires our commitment to the project. We don't force the idea to fit the medium but work out what form/media best serves the specificity of the story (be that fiction film or TV drama, documentary, podcast, animation, non linear screen based works, photography and long form non-fiction prose).


We can't tell you everything we are doing but we have projects in development and filming in Australia and the US. We hope for global appeal.

Documentaries currently in development and production: Wash My Soul in the River’s Flow, an Enigma Machine production in association with Shark Island Productions; American Hunter (dir. Alex Kershaw) and Significance (dir.Philippa Bateman). Scripted drama projects (features and television) in development and current co-ventures are not cited here.

News: Enigma Machine production The Beehivea non-linear documentary about murdered activist and publisher Juanita Nielsen was recently acquired by the City of Sydney. It is also held in the collections of ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) and Artbank.



In approach and style, Middle Of the Road isn't our thing. Stories we tell are connected to big ideas but told through an intimate and distinctive lens.
