The Factory was founded in 2016 by Sharada Stewart.

Sharada was formerly Co-Owner of Azure Management – one of Melbourne’s most established talent agencies – where she oversaw the management of actors and extras for film, television and commercial campaigns.

Prior to her directorship at Azure, Sharada had a long career in the industry. After starting at a very young age with acting and voice-over work, Sharada embarked on what became a successful international modeling career that saw her featured in both print and TV commercial campaigns for many established fashion brands around the world.

After a stint in the music industry managing bands for an agency in the UK, Sharada turned to study and achieved a Diploma in Marketing. She then settled back in Melbourne and cut her teeth on the agency side of the TV & Film business with Munchkins, a firm specializing in the representation of child talent.
