Jesse Richardson is an award winning Actor/Writer/Director of film and theatre with a passion for historical stories.
He is best known for his productions of White Lines (series), The Pitch (feature) and A Godless Country.
Jesse began his journey as an actor, training at the Actors Workshop under the keen eye of master teacher Lynn Kidd. As his career progressed Jesse found a passion for writing, producing and directing his own stories - tales with a focus on a distant and forgotten part of Australia's colonial history.
In 2013 Jesse wrote, produced and performed in the award winning "White Lines', Australia's first web series based in the world of Australian rules football. White Lines received 9 Australian Webstream Award Nominations and gained 'Official Selection' at Melbourne Webfest 2014.
In 2017, Jesse made his directing debut with the feature film 'The Pitch' (co-director) before producing and directing theatre productions of 'The Club' (2019) and 'Red' (2020).
Jesse is now looking to develop the 'A Godless Country' feature as the first of a slate of proposed films set in early, colonial Australia.
