About Us

Epic Films creates innovative film and television projects for traditional and digital platforms. Working collaboratively with writers, directors and producers, we deliver world-class projects with strong narratives and compelling characters.

Epic Films has a unique track record in creating and developing projects for an online audience. Through two series of Wastelander Panda (the first premiering on YouTube internationally and Exile in partnership with ABC iview), we have experienced first-hand all aspects of the online filmmaking process, including audience building, crowdfunding, marketing and social media, distribution and maintaining our online community.

Despite the company’s small size, Epic Films punches above its weight, with our interstate and international partnerships enabling us to open up additional financing opportunities and work on larger-scale projects. We have a particularly strong partnership with Madman Production Company, with Epic Films’ Kirsty Stark having produced two projects (Wastelander Panda: Exile and A Month of Sundays) with MPC.

If you are looking to shoot in South Australia or would like to discuss other opportunities for collaboration, please contact us.

Kirsty Stark


Kirsty Stark co-founded Epic Films in 2010 and began producing in 2011 with Wastelander Panda. Prior to this, she worked in camera department with some of Australia’s most prominent directors and DPs, giving her a unique background working on set.

Kirsty has since produced the series Wastelander Panda: Exile for ABC iview (director Victoria Cocks), along with her first feature film, Madman Production Company’s A Month of Sundays (director Matthew Saville). She is currently developing several projects across film and television.

Kirsty has an intuitive sense of story, but her major strength lies in thinking outside standard production methodologies, a skill which led to the innovative online process that brought Wastelander Panda’s two series to life and saw Epic Films awarded the Breakthrough Business Award at the 2016 Screen Producers Australia Awards.
