Can you tell us about how you first got interested in video and the creative industry in general?
I was first exposed to motion through a mate who had a camera in the early 2000’s, he used to shoot mainly motocross and surfing. I borrowed his camera one day and literally started trying to film anything and everything. At the time, I was a frothing bodyboarder so naturally I started shooting my mates surfing. I remember one weekend I loaded a bunch of random footage onto my mates computer and started editing - I had no idea what I was doing, but it felt amazing! I loved the process of going out to film it and then putting it all together into a clip. From there I knew straight away that it was something that I really wanted to pursue. After a few years of shooting bodyboarding and creating a few surf films, I decided to study a Bachelor of Film Production, then moved to Sydney and started working within the industry.
This project was super fun for me as I have known Candice and Karla for a very long time, way before they had even started ZZ. It’s been super inspiring watching their journey so far, so when Candice first mentioned the project, I was pumped to tell their story.
What do you enjoy doing outside of shooting?
