Our Story

Story driven videos for purpose driven businesses

What Drives us

We know businesses are run by people, for people and our array of video production and online video editing services are designed to bring brands and customers together through the greatest artistic expression: storytelling.

Are you an entrepreneur? We get you! As entrepreneurs ourselves, we know all too well the struggles and challenges of building and running a business. With two successful businesses under our belt and a third start-up on the way, we know what makes businesses tick and we share your entrepreneurial itch. This experience drives us to understand your customers and provide you with a warm, personalised and friendly service that puts your needs first.

Rather than merely putting images together, we focus on effective storytelling. As an entrepreneur, you undoubtedly feel passionate about your business: we strive to harness your passion, love, and determination and weave them into every second of your video. With the help of visual storytelling, we share your brand’s amazing journey with your clients and help you build lasting relationships.

Just like you, we place emphasis on hard work, transparency, and diligence. We’re a bunch of geeks when it comes to video production so we’re always on the lookout for the newest cutting-edge technologies, latest advancements and creative people to join our ranks. We don’t want to scratch the surface by focusing on revenues alone – instead, we dig deeper, helping your brand tell its story and entice its customers.

Throughout the years, we have come to realize that it’s often the little guy with a creative spark that makes the greatest impact. That’s why we at Creative Path Films (formerly Evolve Film Productions) are particularly excited to work with business owners and entrepreneurs, sharing our drive to make a positive social, environmental and cultural change and transform our world for the better.

Lauren-ann Smith

Producer and Documentary Filmmaker

Lauren obtained her diploma in Film and Media at the International Film College and dove right into the world of video production as an independent documentary filmmaker. Her work took her to the distant coasts of Australia where she filmed her first feature documentary, telling the story of a family with an autistic son who risked it all in the name of their dream: sailing the east coast of the continent.

A chance encounter between Lauren and David resulted in their brainchild: the Gold Coast video production company, Creative Path Films (formerly Evolve Film Productions.) Over the past 8 years, Lauren has taken on a multitude of roles within the company: from producer to production manager, through to client liaison, scriptwriter, sound recordist and even caterer! Surrounded by a team of creative professionals and talented filmmakers, Lauren currently acts as a Producer and Operations Manager, overseeing multiple projects at any one time and making sure every clients’ vision is carefully brought to life.

Lauren brings in her meticulous attention to detail, unmatched organizational skills and creative passion to help her team stay grounded and on mission.
