Short Film

Woo-hoo!!! Forget writing for a tick, I picked up the Best Actor award in the NOVA Employment 2021 Focus On Ability Short Film Awards. The prize includes a lot of mentoring, coaching and workshops online in the US and Australia (Diversity Pictures and AAFTA) plus agent representation and career coaching with Charmaine Gilchrist (Gilchrist Management). 2022 is looking pretty busy and interesting!!!

The film itself also picked up a Highly Commended Award.

Here is a link to the film on the FOA website.

Focus on Ability (FOA) is designed to encourage filmmakers to focus on the ability of people with disability. This year they’re celebrating 13 years of doing just that!

What’s in a Name? is the first short-film I have produced and it is the first time I have hopped in front of the camera… well, wheeled in front of the camera.

My co-producer, director and editor is Shayne Cantly, owner of the Toowoomba-based production company, Shoot ‘N’ Edit.

About Focus On Ability:

Based in Australia, this year’s FOA festival Australian Open section had an amazing 88 finalists. The festival itself has 264 finalists from 21 countries.

This could be the richest short-film festival in the world, with over $100,000AUD in prizes to be shared among the festival winners.
