The Graduates


This observational documentary follows the lives of 3 very different students as the worked hard to overcome adversary.

It was inspirational to see what these three have achieved at Victoria University with hard work and dedication.

8K Radius

There is a reason why some cinemas are bucking the trend.
Classic cinema’s in Elsternwick Victoria and the local council combined to make these short films showcasing some of the interesting locals that live within an 8K Radius of the cinema.



Beautifully shot by Peter Falk and directed by my best friend Clayton Jacobson, this was the perfect opportunity for me to come to grips with Final Cut Pro X. The love affair is still alive today.

Police Under Fire

This Doco/Drama was about 3 of the biggest police shootings in Victoria’s history. Beautifully shot and directed making the edit a real joy. Though did bring back some chilling feelings from my time working in the News Room at the ABC.



My first real foray into a major documentary series.

Thanks so much to Phillip Chubb for having the faith in me.

I guess a string of awards including a Logie showed that we had a great team on this important piece of Australian History.
This was the first job I cut on a computer based non-linear editor. And it was something that would change my life forever.
