As a filmmaker and visual artist, I often come back to the same thing; you must work your work to make your work work. The doing is also the thinking.
Hi there, I am a self-taught actor, screenwriter, filmmaker, and visual artist. For the last 25 years I have worked primarily as a professional actor and practicing visual artist. As an actor I have worked with over 60 directors starring in 300 episodes of TV Series and a dozen feature films. Most recently I starred in 'Disturbing the Peace' (2020) with Guy Pearce, and played the son of Nicolas Cage in the film '211' (2018) and starred as Bruce McLaren in Roger Donaldson's 'McLaren' (2017) and have worked with other numerous stars; Karl Urban, Amber Heard, Selma Blair and William Shatner. As a visual artist with 25 years experience, I have painted and sold over 200 artworks. In recent years I have shifted my focus to screenwriting and have now written a dozen short film and four feature film screenplays. I started directing and producing my short films to build up to my feature film directorial debut. My last short film that I wrote, directed, produced and starred in called Holding The Sun was nominated for Best Short Film and Best Production Design at the New Zealand film awards. JUNE is my second official short film that I have directed, produced and starred in. My cinematographer on June was Adam Clark (DOP on Taika Waititi's Oscar-nominated short film Two Cars One Night & two of Waititi's feature films; Eagle Vs Shark and Boy) and my editor is Peter Roberts (Juniper starring Charlotte Rampling) and the visual effects in June were created by five-time Oscar winner Joe Letteri's VFX team at Peter Jackson's Weta Digital headed by Emmy nominated senior VFX supervisor Charlie Tait (Avengers: Infinity War, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Alita: Battle Angel, Deadpool, Prometheus, King Kong, The Hobbit Trilogy)
