Almost half of the calls the SES receive are for non-emergencies, and so alongside Black Sheep Advertising we were faced with the task of promoting what the SES do while also reducing their number of non-emergency calls. This was a big shoot - rain machines, tonnes of extras and more emergency service vehicles than you could poke a stick at. Super challenging, super fun.
An award winning Tourism commercial promoting the Yorke Peninsula region in South Australia with a focus on a private getaway by the name of Troubridge Island. For this concept I recreated a family holiday from my youth in a visceral presentation of rich texture, colour and emotion.

I directed this commercial for Cedar Woods, the developer in charge of the billion dollar Glenside redevelopment, a gargantuan property project located on the fringe of Adelaide near the south east corner of the parklands surrounding the CBD.
Seeds of Gold is the second single from Closure in Moscow's visionary sophomore LP Pink Lemonade. We wanted to visually portray the temporary & fleeting nature of monetary wealth & material possessions. We cut this entirely in black & white save sharp moments of gold.
Sometimes the people closest to us we find the hardest to talk to when it comes to serious issues. This music video visually portrays the sometimes devastating psychological effects of staying silent when the only right course of action is to speak. Tanks of Dust is the lead single off the Paper Arms debut LP The Smoke Will Clear.
A home is an incredibly personal place that one fills with character. For this TVC Harcourts wanted to portray a home almost as a member of a family. When a customer buys they are buying into a rich history that may even stretch beyond their own lifetime. To visually treat this we focussed on the details, rather than the entirety of a home.
This award-winning showcase film was created for the launch of Adelaide Airports new brand and 30-year vision for the future of South Australia. Partnering with interstate animation agencies we combined high-end architectural renders with crisp footage captured all over the huge site to realise this ambitious concept.

The Church of The Technochrist was my first partnership with close-collaborators Closure In Moscow. This ambitious concept was shot in various studios around Adelaide and features the wayward hero of the bands sophomore concept LP Pink Lemonade as he succumbs to the temptations of an enigmatic cult leader in an underground faux-church.
Spearheaded by recognisable faces such as Wally De Backer (Gotye) and Waleed Aly this commercial was written to motivate Australians to march together in the name of cultural diversity & inclusion. Every year thousands around the country participate in Walk Together, marching for change.
This award-winning music video was shot entirely on beta cam to capture the essence of 90's skate videos. With a run-and-gun ethos we essentially wanted to show off the emotion of Beaver, a band whose intensive hardcore punk matches a smash & grab style video perfectly. I Think I Might Be Dying / Vision is the first single from the bands EP On The Record.

One of three TVCs I directed for the South Australian Country Fire Service in the lead up to the yearly bushfire season. These vignettes focus on the firsthand experiences of residents and CFS volunteers who have lived through the horrors of bushfire, in order to warn residents to prepare and be vigilant when it comes to fire season.
For national non-profit Oaktree's rebrand film we focussed on the young people that they galvanise around the country year round in the fight to abolish extreme poverty worldwide. Oaktree have raised millions of dollars through campaigns such as Live Below The Line.
