A River as a Character

https://doi.org/10.1163/23644583-00401016

In this digital paper I explore my process for creating a character out of a non-human entity. As a filmmaker, I feel the need to develop a deep relational connection with what I film and I was unsure how I could do this with the Murray-Darling River.

Expect Delays (2018)

https://vimeo.com/272663869

Expect Delays experiments with John Grierson’s idea of ‘co-operative characters’: no one character is central to the story. In Expect Delays humans and machines work together to destroy, rest, and then create our world.
