from Melbourne, Australia
got hooked onto film making and visual effects with the rise of YouTube. After watching way too many videos from Freddie Wong, Final Cut King and Video Copilot, he realised that creating impressive VFX was now well within the reach of the indie filmmaker.
Unable to find videos that were both educational AND entertaining, he started to create his own style of 'edutainment' tutorials online. He enjoys sharing his enthusiasm and passion for filmmaking and visual effects with anyone who is willing to put up with his 'special' type of humour.
