Personal Quote:

One of the hardest things for me is having to discuss, quote unquote, the state of Australian cinema. I don't want to talk about that, because I'm a film-maker. I don't make films for any reason outside of personal ones. I feel like a fraud if I talk about the industry, because my industry is me and the people I work with and a couple of film-makers. It's not a factory. See more »

Trivia:

Grew up in Canberra, ACT, Australia.
