 MY NAME IS M Cameron


Professional Bio: 

I'm a Queensland based film director and educator currently in post on my first television directing gig, ABC drama series HARROW, and developing curriculum for the SAE Masters program. Over the past decade, I've balanced filmmaking with higher education academic leadership roles such as the Film Department Coordinator role on the Brisbane SAE campus. I've directed tons of short films such as MILK which competed at Cannes, Bilbao and Palm Springs, and music videos such as J Award winning SUNDAY BEST music video for local singer/songwriter WASHINGTON. Last year my first feature film THE SECOND was released into cinemas nationally and on streaming platform, STAN, and nominated for both AACTA and SPAA awards. I'm currently developing a range of long-form projects including a feature film adaptation of American novel THE SECRET LIVES OF DRESSES, and an episode of Hoodlum and Lucky Chap's SHAKESPEARE NOW anthology series. Although my focus is currently being a working director, I remain equally passionate about filmmaking and education and supporting the emerging generation of storytelling voices.
