Aaron instantly began to build his network of producers, directors and colleagues working on projects that included national television commercial campaigns, long form advertising, television series, corporate videos, short films and feature documentaries.
Frustrated by the mismanagement of clients and friends, Aaron decided to start his own Post Production company with the one goal in mind, be client focused and execute on detail. In 2004 PostBox began...

Kylie Smith General Manager
Kylie’s background has always been in television. An early interest in the ‘magic of television’ came from many hours of researching the box as a child. This interest grew into a Media Production degree at CSU-Mitchell post high school and culminated in a job at the Ten Network in Canberra. After working as both a DA on the nightly News broadcasts and a Production Coordinator in the Production department for some time, Kylie left Ten with a diverse and well tuned set of skills; from coping with emergencies on live TV through to organising a department with 6 producers and 10 post/production crew.
After a lengthy sojourn overseas Kylie joined the world of Media Strategy and Buying at Ikon Communciations. “A great workplace only surpassed by its creative minds and giant beer fridge!” Originally leaving after over 4 years just on maternity leave to have her first child, she never looked back when a position came up at PostBox and ADBOX Group.
Kylie rejoined the world of Production and television sparkle at ADBOX in 2007. With a deep knowledge in client relations, production processes, and writing Kylie has gone on to develop her skills whilst at ADBOX with further Accounting and Producing training. Kylie brings a country smile, a dry sense of humour and frequently baked goods to the studio.
Sally Muul Client Service Manager
After graduating with a Communications degree, Sally ventured off to the world of film and television and has stepped into marketing and communication roles for Becker Entertainment, Warner Brothers International Television, The Toronto International Film Festival, Moonlight Cinemas, Mongrel Media and 20th Century Fox - learning everything about the festival, distribution and exhibition industries while watching as many movies as possible.
After a brief stint working on set for a feature length film, Sally has been looking for opportunities to get on the other side of film and television and be a part of the creation process. Since then she has dabbled in screenwriting, prop and set design and was even a zombie in Resident Evil II.
Combining the marketing and communications background with a passion for creating content – the natural step was to jump into production. As the Client Services Manager, she will be the go to person for clients to help bring their vision to life and all the way through to the final product.
Chris Solomon Producer & Camera Operator
Chris is one of the team producing commercials out of the Central West studios as well as wielding our camera on locations when clients require it. Chris began his interest in production when a friend introduced him to a video camera and editing software and he quickly caught the production bug. After completing a couple of short films and a few freebie corporate videos he decided that it might be a good time to try making a profession out of this new found skill, so with text books in hand he headed off to university. Three sleep deprived years later he stepped out of a graduation ceremony with a degree in Television Production thinking, what next?
The answer to that question was a move to Orange and a new career producing television commercials with ADBOX.
