What We Do
Taking Action on Mental Health with Top Blokes
Top Blokes Foundation is on a mission to improve young male health and well-being. Top Blokes work with groups of boys and young men to increase their resilience, knowledge, empathy, and respect for themselves and others. Their aim is to reduce rates of antisocial and risk-taking behaviours, suicide, and mental health problems.
Men are often reluctant to seek help for mental health problems. Traditional ideas of masculinity and a lack of education are big contributors to this phenomenon.
As parents, family members and friends, we’re passionate about changing the current trend and making a positive impact for our communities. We’re proud to be supporting Top Blokes, who are doing incredible work breaking the stigma, educating, and empowering young men across Australia.
Welcome back Sydney! After almost four months in lockdown, we made it through together and are ready to re-emerge. We kept busy in the wake of the announcement and, like everyone, adjusted to the new working dynamics. From remote directing corporate case studies to discovering new sophisticated software to keep up with the demand of our podcast offerings, we have returned to our bright Redfern studio with a multitude of new skills and services. We can’t wait to share these with you!
Head over to our Projects page to check out what we’ve been up to.
Who We Are

Collaborating with industry professionals has always formed the essence of Aaron’s working life, which has informed the foundation of Cobox’s ethos. When working in partnership with clients and industry experts, we develop deeper relationships and produce better outcomes for everyone. Aaron’s production experience has stemmed from a strong foundation in design, editing and directing.
As the CEO of Cobox, Aaron still loves getting involved with creative and production. His credits span across documentary, television, and film. In 2017, Aaron received an AACTA nomination for Best Documentary and an Australian Directors Guild (ADG) nomination for Best Director for the documentary, Zach’s Ceremony. Aaron’s latest documentary focuses on Men’s Mental Health and an unexpected link to keeping active.
Sarah combines a unique ability to visualise a production from start to finish, with creativity, clarity, and insight honed from her experience in the UK and Australia.

Commonwealth Bank, Peugeot, Tourism NSW, Transport NSW, Accenture, and Telstra are just a few of the brands she’s guided during her award-winning career.
At the heart of Rachel’s enduring love for storytelling is her ability to listen.

Her passion for conveying a narrative underpins her desire to champion the end product. She loves storytelling so much she does it on her days off.
