Introduce Yourself : Hello from a Tasmanian filmmaker by Jeff Kirkland

Jeff Kirkland

Hello from a Tasmanian filmmaker

Hi all, I’m a writer, producer, director, cinematographer based in Hobart, Tasmania but have worked throughout Australia and the rest of the world. While I’ve had almost 30 years experience in the corporate video world, it’s only in the last two or three years I’ve become involved in narrative filmmaking and worked as either gaffer or cinematographer on five short films over the last 12 months.

Right now I’m on a mission to produce four short films over the next year to develop my skills as a filmmaker, and with the goal of using those skills to make a low budget feature in 2020. The first of those short films, "Pursuant", which I wrote and directed, is currently in post production.

I’m looking forward to getting to know other members of this online community.

Hi Jeff, its nice to see you actually have plan on how to shoot your first feature. I directed over 5 shorts, two documentaries and produced many shortfilms. I more or less got stuck shooting my first feature in 2007, still working on that today. Nevertheless I'd be happy to give you some advice on what I did achieve up till now. (I also started out in corporate image)

Welcome Jeff! How are you finding the transition from working under corporate goals to having to be motivated by your own artistic vision?
