Arielle Thomas is a lot of things, and it’s 2018 so we’ll settle on ‘creative’. In chronological order, she is an actress, producer, director, photographer and entrepreneur. Arielle graduated from the illustrious Atlantic Acting School, a part of the New York University in 2014. She returned to Australia to establish her own production company Patch Adams Productions with fellow rising actor Nicholas Denton. The pair’s first short film Rabbit (2014) premiered at MIFF, was awarded a Vimeo Staff Pick and quickly climbed to one million plus views online. Continuing on with theatrical stage and film successes, the Patch Adams team have produced three shorts, coining them as “MIFF Darlings” and “Exactly what the next-gen is about”.

Soon after dipping her toe into the commercial world, Arielle produced short film for Ford Motors, and with a new found industry independence, she was hooked. In 2017, a namesake company, Thom was founded. The female driven production company opened it’s doors and quickly accumulated praise for their first short film Meat and Potatoes, a finalist in Tropfest25 and taking home three awards. Arielle’s first fashion film Genade, featuring Bassike’s Resort 16’ Collection was selected to feature in the VAMFF Film Series and premiered on russh.com.

Now with a wide slate of clients Arielle and the Thom team create content and fashion films for the likes of Vogue Australia, Melbourne Fashion Week, Scanlan Theodore, Georg Jensen, Dior, Holiday Inn, booking.com and Ford. Arielle is the Victorian recipient of the inaugural Australian Directors Guild Women in Commercial and Content Mentorship and is signed with the production company Make in the USA. Thom has well and truely found it’s is niche in the Australian fashion circuit. They are the official video partner for Melbourne Fashion Week and are making waves creating look book + campaign video for e-commerce, shifting the way audiences shop online and raising the bar for Australian brands providing a consumer experience. She is a member of the VAMFF Future Board, recognised for her innovative eye and passion for the fashion industry.

With an ever growing client list, Arielle is still heavily involved in Australian film & television. She has two television series in development with established networks, her writing teams are mostly women and Arielle has pledged to run at least 50/50 production sets to see more women in film – always.

If this page was too long before, it’s about to get a little bit longer. Arielle has a side hustle called Remy. It began it’s foundation in self-care and primarily focuses on linen scrunchies. Remy is in talks to some on Australia’s biggest retailers as of 2020 to stock the sustainable, plastic free scrunchies.
