Director Biography - Amelia Forsyth-Smith

Amelia is an actor, writer, and most recently, director. She studied acting at Perform Australia in Canberra Australia, graduating in 2019. Even before graduating she became increasingly engaged in the Canberra film and television industry as an actor, but increasingly learning the art of film making while on set. In 2018 she began writing her own screen plays (short films, web-series and feature films) with the intention to produce them in the future. In the meantime, she aims to garner as much experience in storytelling from all angles of the filming process.

Director Statement

I am a sucker for a good Sci-Fi and to be asked to make my Directorial Debut on a sci-fi short film was a fabulous opportunity. Often being in front of the camera, instead of behind it created new challenges I was eager to explore and the script was one that resonated with me from a comedic standpoint.
