Mackai is currently based on Vancouver Island, Canada but available globally. He has been filmmaking and creating since he was 8 years old, often fostering and researching his own arts education as no school programs would (and still won’t) accept him to study due to his age.
Since graduating from highschool, Mackai's work has been screened internationally with his films playing across Canada, Europe and Asia with upcoming showings in the USA and South America. Adjacent to filmmaking, his work in photography both reporting and creative has been seen in exhibition and published nationally.
As of 2021, Mackai identifies as a Filmmaker/Photographer/Creative Director but that is all subject to change as he continues exploring new mediums and formats to better share his stories and translate his thoughts into a mutual language.
