In yet another foreign civil-war, a desperate Aussie photojournalist must capture the memorable photo of death that will make her career. Even if it means creating the atrocities herself.
My graduating production with the Victorian College of the Arts, Pulitzer is a dark and savage satire that has become scarily prescient in recent times, with several incidents mirroring the plot.
Still exceptionally proud of the ending.
Featuring Cassandra Magrath, Blake Davis and Luke Christopoulous.

In Second World War Russia, a disillusioned German officer is forced to battle his second in command's growing suspicions, after secretly betraying orders to save his men from the front.
An atmospheric mood piece shot on Super 16mm black and white stock. This was made as my second year major production. It's definitely a student project, but I think the atmosphere of this one was something which I was really pleased about.
Featuring Sebastian Gunner, Frank Handrum and Timothy Corrigan.

Assisted Death (2013).
In a lush Swiss hotel, an Australian couple are interrogated by a local doctor. They've made their decision.
A short experimental slice of life project, shot in vivid saturated colour on 16mm film stock. My second year major project at the Victorian College of the Arts. The people at the location thought we were shooting pornography, I assured them that we were just shooting a short wholesome look at euthanasia.
Featuring Richard Davine, Kate Mulqueen and Julian Monatzeder.
