POLYPHONIC PICTURES is a company founded by Agatha Yim that specialises in film and photography for inspired creatives with big ideas.

From documentary film, narrative and experimental shorts, event videography/photography of creative events, to artistic portraits and editorials; Agatha brings her unique perspective as a professional musician to her visuals and story-telling.  As such she’s frequently approached by artists, musicians and other creative types.

Polyphonic Pictures has collaborated with the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival, Tinalley Quartet, Kawabata-Go Duo, Hamer Quartet, Syzygy Ensemble, Project Music Management, as well as artists from London, Europe, and Australia.

Polyphonic Pictures is currently the film and photography partner of the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra.

Agatha won OPEN CHANNEL’s ‘2008 Short and Sharp Competition’, which resulted in the World Premiere of her short film at the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival in Melbourne, and Canadian Premiere at the Regent Park Film Festival in Toronto in 2009.  The film was titled ‘When I Grow Up I Want to Be White‘, and was an ode to the trials and tribulations of being a second generation Chinese-Australian.
