Chemical Media is an independent production company specialising in documentaries and factual entertainment. Its founders have made hundreds of hours of programming for broadcasters such as the ABC, SBS, Discovery Channel, National Geographic and Al Jazeera English.

Along the way we’ve produced programming on everything from art and adventure to science and contemporary social issues, handled location shoots from Alaska to Yunnan, been hailed by prime ministers, denounced as people-smugglers, and frequently missed the last bus home.

With Australian roots and a global outlook, we’ve forged strategic film finance relationships with partners around the world and tailored unique content for brands such as Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Tourism Malaysia.

Focusing on strong storytelling and intelligent entertainment, the Chemical team has created factual documentaries, break-through social media campaigns, award-winning VR documentaries, and occasionally even impressed our mums.

Chemical Media is part-owned by Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler.
