The Dream Syndicate is a DIVA Award-Winning provider of film, photography and graphic design based in Sydney, Australia. It began as a social installation combining photography, video and written work celebrating the people and the artists that frequently contribute to Australia's LGBTi community.
Today that journey continues to flourish through our promise to deliver the story of everyday dreamers and brands with integrity and pathos. Everything is personal.
Ashley Andres Penin is the curator of the Dream Syndicate. Prior to this venture he has dedicated over 15 years to a range of projects across film, television and photography in Australia and abroad. In 2005 he studied across Madrid and Paris where he contributed to a greater understanding of Photogenie in French Impressionist film theory. He has also contributed to studies focused on Hollywood and Soviet Cinema.
Alongside his journey in the arts, Ashley is also an experienced marketing professional with close to a decade of experience developing and managing brands across events, education and technology industries.
His work on the Syndicate is greatly inspired by a range of Auteurs in the world of cinema - including Pedro Almodovar, Terrance Malick and Hitchcock. His current interests in film and photography lie in exploring drama in music video aesthetics, aswell as exprimental and abstract cinema.
