Vs. Studio

60 years of history told through the spin of a tutu.

VERSUS is an independent director duo consisting of Serbian-Australian Tanya Babic and Indonesian-Australian Jason Sukadana. Meeting at art school in the roaring noughties, the two bonded over a shared creative approach of combining contemporary art theory with commercial aesthetics. Known for pairing striking visuals with a commitment to authentic storytelling, VERSUS craft compelling work with a particular focus on music, documentary and the arts. Whether directing the Wu Tang Clan or rural Australian publicans, Tanya and Jason have forged a career in bringing these sensibilities to a broad range of screen work. This has resulted in award-winning campaigns for international giants including Nike, Google, Airbnb and Youtube, to home-grown brands such as Sydney Opera House, The Australian Ballet, Myer and Optus. The two directors are supported by a super-talented team at Vs STUDIO, a production facility purpose-built to bring their creative vision to life.
