Director Biography - David Lawrence

Best known for his comedy webseries “Beautiful Brisbane” David Lawrence is a one man production house with a flair for the old and odd.

Brought up on video cassettes of 70’s Children’s television and Gilbert and Sullivan Operettas this poor child crafted props from discarded scraps and turned bed sheets into scenery and has never stopped. After a brief stint production designing for live theatre, David returned to his first love of filmmaking after being corrupted by the films of John Waters and refuses to turn back.

Starting with “Hypermarket Heroes” the supermarket soap opera David’s brand Faux Facade has been creating high concept unique web content on shoestring budgets alienating viewers left, right and centre and upwards we presume. David has just completed his new web series “Deep Probe 7” an erotic adventure in deep space. Utilising recycled materials, unforgivable camera zooms and improper usage of food it’s only a matter of time before someone takes issue with it and it’s removed from youtube.

Unlike his previous work “Hooked on Knit” was produced over the space of 6 months and has a slight air of quality to it. Like his previous work it features bright colours and a parade of synthetic hair. David is currently contemplating his next move but like a chess game, he’s already distracted and playing with something shiny.
