I'm creatin Something Deadly
My name is Jahvis Loveday, I am a young Indigenous Filmmaker from the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. I have grown up in a big family of seven brothers and sisters, all raised by my mum. After her passing we moved in with our uncle and aunty and cousins. I first picked up a camera in 2016, to create a memory of one of our travelling adventures. Since then I have not been able to stop myself from being engulfed by the world of storytelling through film and video. Over the past two years I have completed a bachelor of film, along the way making over 100 videos and 10 short films that have gone on to win me the honour of best Young Australian Filmmaker of 2020 at the Byron Bay International Film Festival. I have experimented with lots of different stories and how to tell them, and the biggest thing I have learnt is to create what I know. To tell my stories, what I have experienced and what lessons I have learnt. Once I have more skills and knowledge I want to travel around our country and help tell the stories of all my traditional brothers and sisters.
