Our name, ONE80degree Films evolved from the stunning 180 degrees view from the Perth Hills escarpment.
It also symbolises the concept of focusing on what lies on your journey ahead, whilst learning from what’s behind you.
We felt that the word ‘film’ is more closely aligned with the concept of story and evokes a more emotional response than ‘video’, even though we now live in a digital age.
As we are both passionate about people and their stories, and we share the same ethical values, we saw a synergy in combining our creative and management skills. In mid-2018, we launched ONE80degree Films.
