Director Biography - Kirsten Livie
Director Statement

I am a creative professional specialising in identifying, writing, collaborating, directing and producing quality drama and thrillers. Originating from Perth, Australia, I stepped into the arts at a young age firstly through dance, and later in theatre, film and television earning degrees and experience professionally. While I spent many years in front of the camera for companies such as Beyond Productions, Southern Star and Graham McNeice, I have been furthering my urge to tell stories - stories I have witnessed, experienced, imagined and stories that matter, through writing, producing, directing, researching for both short format films and television. I have attended various filmmaking workshops in Los Angeles and Sydney and have pitched to companies such as Bad Robot. My passion for quality drama and thrillers is demonstrated through crafting unique and compelling ideas that depict the realities of life in a stylised way. My influences include JJ Abrams, Allan Cubitt, Shonda Rhimes, David Fincher and Hagai Levi. Along with this I also works as a Teacher of Drama and have held leadership and coordination roles in the Creative Arts Tertiary Education Industry. My ultimate goal is to tell stories that matter, stories that entertain and to be an advocate for women in film.
