“I look at my father, who was in many ways an unhappy person, but who, not long before he got sick, said that the greatest source of satisfaction in his life had been going to work in the company of other workers.“
- Jonathan Franzen
For the past eight years, I have relied heavily on an ever-expanding skills base. Always eager to broaden my knowledge and experience in the limitless art of story telling, my professional folio stretches across a spectrum of creative works ranging from animation and multimedia, to documentary and fiction.
I graduated from ‘Film and Television (Screen Production)’ at RMIT in 2006, and then went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction in Multimedia in 2007. I have since worked on a number of projects that have had success at both local and international film festivals.
The collaborative process of filmmaking is what has always kept me absorbed in the medium. I believe that filmmaking is first and foremost about the people you work with. A film’s success depends on a common bond shared across all the contributing art forms; one that is ultimately reflected in the satisfaction of individuals contributing towards one grand, multifaceted artwork.
For me, filmmaking is also a full-flavoured way to celebrate and preserve the factors I find most important or interesting about life.
I consider all film to be a cerebral channel to anyone who might come to share an interest in a topic, theme or idea. It’s tapping into some of the most fundamental aspects of being human – to communicate, share, and be a part of something greater than yourself.
