Double Happiness

Double Happiness is a feature film & broadcast hour observational documentary, taking us on a billion-dollar ride of fantasy, aspiration, hope, reconciliation and status-symbolism in the making, which explores contemporary China through the window of the pre wedding photography industry.

Media Stockade is an independent production company based in Sydney, Australia, with our eyes and ears open to stories from around the world.

Founders, Rebecca Barry and Madeleine Hetherton, share over a decade of film and TV production experience and collectively have made over 50 hours of broadcast television. They have been colleagues for the last 15 years and now are working together on an exciting slate of projects.

Our programs are provocative and socially relevant. Often witty, humorous, insightful – our stuff entertains without being stupid. We want to move people – and inspire them to action and debate. But we are not didactic. We respect the intelligence of our audience.

We are uncompromising in the best sense of the word. We strive for excellence. We collaborate, develop and produce projects together. We offer support, advice and strategy to independent filmmakers, to enable them to produce their ideas. We genuinely love enabling stories and most importantly working with people who inspire us.
