During 2014 I had the opportunity to work on a adventure travel documentary DVD series for 4WD Action magazine. My role was to shoot and edit 45 min program as part of a commercial dvd that is distributed online and at news agencies nationally every 3 weeks. I’ve done alot of travel in Australia but during my 6 months working for 4WD Action I got to work and travel to some of the most remote and beautiful places in Australia. It wasn’t long before I took on the role of producer and director. This was a challenging but rewarding role, pre-production of shoots back in the office , location scouting, In the field I was managing up to 9 crew members, having to think on my feet when plans changed or unforeseeable circumstances arose which they always did! Every DVD shoot was non-stop where a standard day was up at the crack of dawn for filming. Outside of getting content for the travel segments, there was sponsor and commercial filming obligations and creation of branded content. The working day would go well into the night capturing, checking and backing up data. Hard work aside, it was an amazing opportunity and I look forward to working on many more projects like this one in the near future.
Working for South Australia Tourism and Geocentric Outdoors I travelled to the Flinders Ranges to film, edit and output news feeds for national distribution. Working to tight deadlines, travelling long distances , mapping and planning to follow the races competitiors and 4wding in rough isolated terrain. Having limited access to output newsfeeds to meet tight deadlines was challenging. I edited this package for the fan and sponsors to thank them for inviting me to work on the race.

The brief was to create an engaging video for geared.com.au to spread the message about young people and the dangers of speeding. I picked key surfers to spread the message, interviewed them and shot and edited this package.
The 7th stop on the Australasian Pro junior series held at Cronulla beach over easter weekend. I produced, shot and edited daily highlights packages for web and cut a event highlights package for fuel.
