I'm a producer and have collaborated on numerous projects with Alana in the past and am always impressed by her dedication and innovative ideas. She always has a good sense of what the client wants and goes above and beyond expectations.

Alana Tompson is a creative pragmatic thought leader. She specialises in conscious video disruption. A natural leader and believer in higher consciousness projects. I would recommend Alana as a deliverer of visually rich video movements. Bravery and humility come naturally to those with integrity. The "Black Ant" over comes the white ant mentality with graceful communication strategies.
- William Scott, Founder of Aussie Farmers Group & WHAS Investments
Alana Tompson is a true professional, easy to work with and accommodating of your needs, yet is incredibly thorough with great attention to detail. She is very creative and has wonderful ideas which add value to her work. Her experience on both sides of the camera gives another dimension to her work.

I am an officer on the Sea Shepherd ship, MV Steve Irwin. In the summer of 2013/14, I had the pleasure of working with film maker, Alana Tompson on Sea Shepherds 10th Antarctic anti-whaling campaign, Operation Relentless. We spent 3 months at sea and Alana interviewed and filmed me on watch every day for the seventh series of Animal Planet's TV program "Whale Wars".
When first introduced to her, I detected both confidence and apprehension, determination and dedication along with a strong commitment to handle the stresses of what was about to unfold. Not only did she cover all of the day to day aspects of the campaign but she managed to capture the "money shot" when we first came under attack from the Japanese whaling fleet. She stood steadfast, outside on the bridge wing, braced for impact and kept the camera rolling as a harpoon ship came straight at our portside bow. This footage ended up on news stations around the world.
I have abundant respect for Alana and see a very bright future for Black Ant Films.
- Vincent Burke, Officer with Sea Shepherd Australia
I'm so happy with the final product and I received it so quickly! Just what I needed to get my work out there to a wider audience. You delivered everything we discussed, great job! Thank you so much!
It was also important for me to work with an ethical company making films for the change I teach in my work. I'm grateful to have found you, keep up the good work!
Black Ant Films helped my business by making me an introduction video to my workshop. I must say I'm super impressed with the final result and the benefits it has shown for my business!
The video is so professional my friends are congratulating me about it! You helped me to feel at ease immediately in front of the camera with your professional, calm and friendly manner.
