A LITTLE ABOUT US
Like most films, the story behind Finesilver media lies within the history and background of its creator Joshua Belinfante. 'Fjainsilber' is the Polish last name of Joshua's mother's family. The family worked as tailors for the Russian army in World War 2 and immigrated to Australia in the 50s.
When they arrived in Sydney with very little, Uszer Fjainsilber set up his own tailoring business and took a risk. When the factory opened to the public a close friend hammered a single silver horseshoe on the door for luck.
Joshua wanted to forge the family's legacy into something meaningful and use the spirit of that time to communicate stories, old and new.
Named after the silver halide crystals involved in the traditional cinema process, our work and our processes are based on the traditional way of doing things. We get stories so let us tell yours!
