Oombarra Taxi

Oombarra Taxi is a hybrid production arm seeking to incubate and support established and emerging First Nations storytellers. This strategic alliance between Oombarra Productions and Taxi Film Production was created to take a proactive approach in bridging the gap in the types of narratives being told and funded. Oombarra Taxi has committed to working with First Nation Writers, Producers, Directors, and talent to ensure the next generation of Australian film, television and content tells an inclusive and culturally accurate narrative.


This new production arm brings together a wealth of industry experience uniting multitalented duo, Leah Purcell and EP Bain Stewart with production industry heavyweight, Andrew Wareham. Years of experience and industry knowledge alongside a clearly defined and measurable objective sets an exciting scene for this branch of our business.
