My main passion focusses on Killing Coral, an interrogation of factors causing long term decline of the world’s coral reefs. Low Isles; Following Yonge investigates the changes since the first scientific expedition to properly sample data on the Great Barrier Reef back in 1828. Enewetak; Dead and Alive is a mirror image; an atoll that was vaporised by nuclear bomb tests now has some of the world’s best coral.
During my time at AFTRS I set out to make an immigration documentary called Russia to Australia but I hit a wall of resistance. I’m hoping to resurrect this with Russia East West – investigating our preconceptions about Russia both physically and geo-politically. My father built four airstrips in Cape York during WW2.
Bombed on one occasion, I’m hoping that Horn Island, Iron Range will reveal something about which my father never spoke. The Carnarvons is also about how this rugged part of Central Queensland is intimately tied to my relationship with my father, who put a survey through in 1932.
