How did AIT help you achieve success?

AIT helped me gain a lot of skill and knowledge in the film industry. Through my 2016 AIT Oscars win, I gained a membership to the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS). AIT has also appointed me as Director & Videographer for a number of projects such as coverage on Game of Thrones, Alien: Covenant, Mad Max: Fury Road and many more. Through AIT, I will also single-handedly produce a documentary in Kenya - following the students and teachers of the University of Notre Dame Sydney.
