Why Taste?

For 10 years we’ve been telling stories that engage the hearts and minds of audiences through live action and animated films. Starting from simple beginnings in a bedroom office in Sydney’s inner-west, we’ve grown to a team of strong creatives, including our studio pup, Greta, the West Highland Terrier.

Over the years we’ve never lost sight of our vision to make the world a better place through our love of storytelling.

We pride ourselves on making the process of working with Taste as engaging, entertaining and enriching as the content we produce. We take care to work collaboratively with our clients through each step of the process, making use of any existing research, strategy or creative thinking, so that we can prioritise the areas in which we add the best value. While we work as partners with our clients, we ensure we are held accountable for the end results.
