Daybreak Films has worked extensively within the arts sector developing and curating exhibition content and single and multi-screen moving image work for arts festivals, live performance and exhibition spaces.

The company has worked with major arts organizations including the Melbourne International Festival of the Arts, National Portrait Gallery, the Australian Center for the Moving Image and Malthouse Theatre to develop and create content for works that range from large scale installations, films for live performance and archival film production.

As individual artists, the directors Rhys Graham and Natasha Gadd have worked extensively in creating and exhibiting multi-screen works in institutions such as AGNSW, Gertrude Contermporary Art Space, Melbourne Museum and Museo Italiano. Their work is also collected in the Bauhaus Archive, The National Portrait Gallery and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.

Daybreak works closely with artists, theatres and production companies in creating performance films and archival productions. These have included multi camera filmed versions of productions including Malthouse Theatre's Threepenny Opera, Optimism, Woyzeck and Tis Pity She's a Whore, Hayloft Theatre's Baal and Thyestes and Black Sequin's Madeleine among many others
