Who we are

Sonder is a multi-disciplinary agency with a reputation for creating innovative brand stories. Sonder helps to transform brands and businesses through strong conceptual thinking and carefully crafted storytelling.

Our team

Our team is led by Francesca Mackenzie and Tom van den Brink. Sonder was co-founded by Tom and Francesca, who first met at film school then decided to make it on their own as videographers and filmmakers. Tom has multiple years experience working at a large advertising firm in Holland and Francesca has a background in design and illustration. The two of them combined gives Sonder the perfect balance between creativity and technical skill. They're easy going people that are a little mad (in the best way), but most importantly they're passionate about capturing beautiful things on camera and bringing your brand to life.

Sonder also has a team of freelancers working in the film industry that will regularly help out during the production phase of projects. This means we can tailor the crew to the size of your production and budget.

Our approach

At Sonder we strongly believe that combining commercial video production with film work makes for a more inspired final product.


Sonder routinely works with a range of photographers, designers, film crews, cinematographers, copywriters, motion designers and marketers. These relationships enable us to tailor a team to suit the needs of each project and to provide clients with access to industry leaders rather than just an in-house team.

Our Wellington-based team can help your brand tap into this market. Their job is to make your video production experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
