The Public Studio is a Melbourne-based practice that specialises in:
- Film & specifically commissioned video works; art direction for still photography.
- Installation, events & live artworks.
Creative directors, Nicholas Coghlan and Ming-Zhu Hii are producers and interdisciplinary artists with over two decades of professional experience in installation, film and theatre making and direction; retail development, event and project management; publishing, marketing and brand strategy; performance, writing, and corporate and communications training.
The Public Studio works on both sides of (and sometimes straddles the divide between) purely artistic, and commercially based outcomes.
The studio collaborates regularly with a network of creatives who share the rigours of Coghlan & Hii's vision and match this with exceedingly skillful execution of craft.
