Welcome to The Incredible Production Collective an award winning Production Company with an eclectic roster of exciting freelance independent, established and emerging directing talent, photographers and cinematographers.
The Incredible Production Collective was established in 2019 by Executive Producers Sam Allison and Helen Doick. The model was developed in reaction to the ever-evolving commercial world.
We provide high end streamlined production services to enable our roster of talent to collaborate seamlessly with agencies and clients to create award-winning films, stills shoots and original content for global brands.
IPC offers a curated collective of experienced freelance creative talent to ensure you have the best artist for your project.
Its aim is to be the “Go to Destination” that agency creative and direct clients go to source the top tried and trusted talent for projects.
We have spent the best part of eighteen months researching what the industry needs, having talked to direct clients, ad agencies and various artists discovering there is a desire to have a single platform for clients to source top end independents, a trusted place to find artists that are not tied to the traditional prod co set up.
For artists IPC offers the support of a production company without the ties – artists are free to scale up or down as required and can choose if they utilise the networks production services or not.
IPC is a marketing engine for talent and offers a tool for artists to be found and recommended to clients from.
It all began for Helen with flash dance, choreographing Disco routines and sewing sequins. 1983 stayed a strong inspiration for the next 36 years!
After graduating with a BA Honours in Dance and Related Arts and a bursary for high achievement, Helen went on as choreographer, performer and producer for various projects, including The Gothenburg Culture Festival at the Gotenborg Opera House, Glastonbury, Brighton and Bristol Festivals and London’s Sadlers Wells and Laban.
After arriving in Australia in December 2000, Helen turned her arts producing knowledge towards advertising, she worked in adland and fast received the AWARD school Top mentorship programme, after which she transitioned towards producing commercial work and Art Directing fashion shoots. Since then Helen has shimmied up the ranks in various Production companies, with time as General Manager at Look, leading the company with global campaigns for brands such as Standard Chartered and Hyundai. At this point and with a decade of high end commercial management under her belt she launched The Incredible Picture Machine, which became a multi million grossing company in the first 24 months. Fast-forward to 2019 and the desire to push female leaders, tech and alternative working methods in the industry, Helen along with business partner Sam Allison jointly birthed IPC.
Weirdly it’s Sam who now prefers sequins!
