SIRAP is an agile content-led creative production studio working closely with a global portfolio of clients to develop fully integrated content-first campaigns.

We strive to create visual experiences that change how people think, feel, act and talk about brands, through the power of film and visual content.

Our full-service approach to content creation extends from creative direction, scripting, pre-production, film direction, cinematography, sound and post-production.

We drive our productions from ideation through to final delivery with our full-time team of Producers, Directors, Cinematographers and Editors – but we’re agile enough to know how to harness the power of a one-man band where required.

SIRAP was founded in 2013 by Paris Thomson. With a background in the creative and media industries, Paris and her team injects experience from the journalism, television production and filmmaking worlds into the SIRAP aether. In 2021 Paris won the B&T ‘Best of the Best’ award in the Film Director category.

Our guiding philosophy is to create beautiful content that triggers new perspectives and emotion, locally and the world over.
