Joel works as a freelance Director/Cinematographer who strives to bring authenticity and quality to his work above all else. He also pursues Songwriting and Acting when he’s not on set behind the camera.
Despite having multiple passions, film making is where he focuses his time and attention these days.
“Cliches aside, I genuinely am passionate about making beautiful and engaging moving pictures that connect with people on an emotional level”, says Joel.
“Growing up in a musical family, travelling the Australian countryside in somewhat of a bohemian existence, really prepared me for work in the film industry which is all about spontaneity, teamwork and problem solving. I love what I do and consider myself blessed to have found something I can do for a living that I love so much!”
Joel’s multi-disciplinarian approach imbues his work with depth, clarity and a unique perspective.
“At times, I’ll draw parallels between songwriting and storytelling, for example, that I feel give me a unique point of view on the creative process as a whole. Or with my background in acting, it really helps me when directing and communicating with the actors I work with, to ensure we get an ideal outcome in both the process and end result. As paradoxical as it sounds, cultivating variety in my creative life is something I’ve found that actually allows me to focus better on the task at hand.”
