About Lee

Lee is a prolific contemporary Australian producer with a large number of short films, two feature-length comedies, a feature-length documentary and a broadcast documentary under his belt.

Achieving a postgraduate diploma in Film & Television (Producing) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2010, he was accepted into Screen Producers Australia's Ones to Watch emerging producer program the following year, the AIDC mentoring program in 2015, and in 2017, he participated in Berlinale Talents.

In 2013 he was commissioned by the ABC to produce the local broadcast documentary 'Our Little Secret'; and received a short film finishing funds grant from Screen Australia for the short version of 'Emo (the Musical)'. Emo went on to receive the 'Special Mention', runner-up to the Crystal Bear award for Best Short Film in the Generation+ competition at the 2014 Berlinale.

He then successfully developed, financed, produced and marketed the feature version of 'EMO the Musical' within two years, securing the support of Screen Australia, Film Victoria and the MIFF Premiere Fund and returned to Berlin in 2017 for its international premiere, before selling to Netflix globally.

He has most recently completed a feature documentary for MIFF PF and supported by Screen Queensland, working with Veronica Fury, ‘Hating Peter Tatchell’.

Lee also co-produced the feature-length body-swap comedy 'The Heckler', and is currently developing a number of feature-length and series concepts, for screens big and small.
