Helen Bowden, founder and former managing director of Matchbox Pictures, and Jason Stephens, ex-creative director and director of development at FremantleMedia Australia, have formed a new production company – Lingo Pictures.
The Sydney-based production company will create scripted and unscripted content for the local and the international market.
Bowden – whose credits include The Slap, Underground: The Julian Assange Story and Devil’s Playground – will be managing director. Jason Stephens – whose credits include Mr and Mrs Murder, Devil’s Dust and Better Man – will be Lingo Pictures’ creative director.
The company principals have promised Lingo will be creatively focused, nimble and market savvy. “We aim to build strong partnerships and new business models, while putting together an ambitious production slate. We look forward to making some exciting announcements in the near future.”
