Fire Films’ mission is to produce health and science video content that positively impacts society. Many of our films and educational videos have been widely acclaimed both in Australia and internationally, and have contributed to driving change and major cultural shifts in both large organisations and the wider community.
We produce meaningful video content that supports our vision of a society where everyone can live healthy, purposeful lives, free of the avoidable burden of disease.
Our filmmaking style is very observational and true to life. We’re documentarians, sharing stories of real people in an honest way, capturing genuine moments as they happen. Our extensive experience in working with and understanding the needs of vulnerable people allows us to offer a uniquely ethical and sensitive approach.
We’re based in Melbourne, Australia, but regularly work with people and organisations interstate and internationally.

"It Takes a Community’ offers so much enrichment to our teaching resources and I believe it will truly inspire students to embrace relational work and challenge the medical model in aged care.
The film challenges our beliefs in ways that words cannot and gives such strong legitimacy to advocates for change. I must also say the images are so sensitively rendered, so beautiful and moving."

Your dedication, professionalism and compassion during production, particularly when interviewing people living with dementia and their carers was inspiring.
Your passion for and commitment to understanding the subject matter was evident at every stage of the process. We are incredibly proud of the film, ‘Love Loss and Laughter: Living with Dementia’.
We would like to thank Corinne and her team for their efforts in making it happen. We definitely look forward to working with Fire Films again in the future.
- Maree McCabe, National CEO, Dementia Australia
"As a not-for-profit organisation we're always mindful of effective resource allocation. Corinne's advice, professionalism and creative ideas enabled us to make the most of our resources and I'm thrilled with the end product. Easy to work with, creative, responsive and respectful."
- Josh Fergeus, CEO Kevin Heinze Grow
"Corinne is really gifted – more so than any filmmaker I’ve come across – and a pleasure to work with. Our first encounter came when I was the main subject of a film she was making. A few months later I asked her to work with me on two long term projects.
What began as her small contribution to an eventual endeavor turned into two major immediate productions thanks to her insight, intelligence, talent, and enthusiasm. I can’t wait to have another opportunity to work with her and learn from her again."
