Personal Quote:

Movie-goers are skilfully manipulated by film-makers. It's our job to execute effortlessly the 'sleight of hand', if you will. Images flash across the silver screen pretty quickly and audiences shouldn't have time to dwell on what they see.

Trivia:

Education: Sherwood Park Primary School, Mitcham County Grammar Boys' School, Kingston College (Architecture).
