Film Education

Deakin University 2010-2012
Have recently graduated with a Bachelors of Film and Digital Media from Deakin University, Burwood campus, after three years of study. I majored in Film and minored in Animation so have practical and theoretical knowledge in both production areas.

Borneo Documentary Study Tour June 2012
During June of this year, I embarked on a 15-day study tour to Borneo, filming a documentary about an indigenous community in the highlands. The project is still being edited and will be completed by early next year. I gained further experience operating camera and recording sound on location as well as editing what was shot afterwards.

The Legend Maker January 2013
During January 2013, Australian Film veteran, Ian Pringle, hired me to work on his Independent Feature Film, “The Legend Maker”. Veteran Documentarian Brian McKenzie was the film’s Director of Photography. Because the film had a relatively low budget the crew was small and I gained great experience learning from these experienced Film Professionals.
Below are links to work I have completed at University that I believe show my capabilities.

LEAD (documentary short)
My roles on this documentary were many, considering there were two other students working with me. I edited the film and recorded the location sound, as well as operating the camera for most of the production.

THIS SUCKS! (Final Year Animation)
This is my final animation project, which I compiled in the 3D animation program, Maya. I compiled the entire animation individually.

BRICK ROAD (Final Year Major Film)
This is my final film that we have just completed and screened at the Astor Theatre. It was shot using a RED Epic camera. I was credited as the sound designer, directing the sound from pre-production through to post-production. I also did the post-production visual effects.
