Hype Republic is a full-service creative production company with offices in Sydney and Gold Coast, founded by artist and AACTA award-winning director Macario De Souza with a vision to combine cinematic quality vision with compelling story telling. 

Heading up Hype’s Gold Coast studio and post-production facility is ARIA & ACS award-winning director / DOP Allan Hardy. 

Backed by a team of specialists, this dynamic collective brings industry skills & experience like no other to produce work across the following divisions: 



Macario De Souza began his career with the creation of Bra Boys - now 10 years old, it continues to be Australia’s second most commercial documentary. The tradition of telling stories that explore culture through a unique and immersive lens continues with our long format slate across music documentaries, unscripted TV series and more recently feature films.



From fast turn around social to full scale commercials that bring Hollywood style action to the screen, we work with brands like Red Bull, Uber, Supercheap Auto & NRL to create content that disrupts and entertains.



From local artists like Bliss N Eso, Sampa The Great, Dune Rats & Illy to international acts like Ed Sheeran and Twenty One Pilots, we work with artists and labels to conceive and bring to life bold and innovative concepts for music videos and content pieces, using the most interesting directors and best technical crews.
