What we do

FILM AND TELEVISION LIGHTING

Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Australia wide, its all on wheels.

The philosophy at Monkey Business is simple.

Highly experienced gaffers with the latest equipment get the best looking product as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible – with the maximum amount of good humour.

Monkey Business have been lighting films, TV series and TVC’s since 1991 and have more years of combined experience than we would like to admit. Steve Monk, Simon Williams, Stefan Fidirikkos, Yoshi Kwan and Alan Willis are our Gaffers who know every capability of our state of the art lighting technology. We will help make your project a visual extravaganza.

We achieve this quickly, efficiently, safely and know how to deliver, whatever your budgetary conditions may be.
