Do Your Thing

In June 2021 I needed a change so I went on a creative journey. I headed north from Geelong, a southern town in Australia, and lived out of a Honda Jazz, playing improvised music at random places outdoors. My destination was Uluru, but Covid's lingering presence impacted every aspect of the trip.

Director Statement

I like to make things. I quit my job and went on an adventure, returning the day before lockdown. I seized the opportunity and made a film from the experience. This is my first film.
