An actor and artist, with a bachelor of fine art from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2006, Alan's filmmaking practice aims to encapsulate these disciplines, along with a passion for avant garde storytelling. His 2019 short, 'Wild Will', shot solo in his apartment kitchen, screened in competition at over 70 festivals worldwide, incl; Clermont-Ferrand (world premiere), Tampere, Dresden, Cannes Antipodes, Encounters and Tallinn Black Nights. Jury awards for the film included, Brisbane, Castrovillari, Sorsi Corti and Short Days film festivals. A 2018 Australian Writers Guild, ‘Monte Miller’ nominee, Alan is currently working on his first feature film 'The Beast', a fictional dark comedy about a notorious recluse.

Director Statement

I was challenged to look at new ways to approach the telling of this film (Wild Will), primarily born from the fact that I shot the film by myself in the kitchen of my apartment (ironically pre-Covid, before this technique would somewhat globally take off, due to the pandemic lockdowns that many filmmakers faced). Through the many challenges that came with shooting Wild Will solo, I also found this process allowed some interesting new ideas to come to the fore. I kept 'Wild Will's' shot and production design selections, stark and finite, whilst increasing the audio presence within the film's narrative. This somewhat un-conventional approach, hopefully invites the audience to fill in what is 'not seen' with their own mind and help facilitate, a more intense and unsettled interaction with the lead character 'Will'
