From YouTube to a successful TV Comedy.
Fight for the Murray Campaign
A series of short films and a commercial to highlight the plight of the Murray River in South Australia.
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.
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.
Who would have thought that this little film that started life as an experimental hobby would become one of the highest grossing Australian made films for 2006! A tribute to the professionalism and genius of both the Jacobson brothers. I kept telling Clayton that the film was going to be a smash hit but he wouldn’t believe me. Well I’m happy to be able to say “I told you so!” We had an absolute blast making KENNY and I’m sure the next project we work on together will be just as much fun.
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.
