I am also currently casting for a feature film I am going to direct in November, titled 13 Summers. Names will be announced shortly, but already there is a strong cast with a US name and three well known Australians. See more info at www.13summersmovie.com

Late last year I completed 3 weeks on Neighbours, directing several scenes as part of a shadow directing program through Film Victoria. I was due to continue with Neighbours on a block in March but this changed with the show being axed. Very sad for such an iconic Australian show.

Last year I was asked to mentor on the comedy/drama short film category of the Sunshine Coast Showdown sponsored by Sunshine Coast Screen Collective and Kevin Rudd. I directed the winning film Life In Two Words which we also entered into the Belgium Art Film Festival and it received and honorable mention.

In January I directed the latest quest for US company Mind Valley and this will be released by them in September this year as their main launch for 2022. This was the first time Mind Valley had outsourced a director and crew in the history of the company!

Time & Place web series which I wrote and directed, with Screen Australia as principal production investor starring Lara Cox, Tracy Mann, Conrad Coleby, Bree Desborough and Lisa Kay, will be released in September. Follow @timeandplacetv on socials.
