Documentary Scholarship 2011 entry

INDIA | Thursday, 1 September 2011 | Views [697]

In February 2011 I set out to Kashmir to film my first documentary. I had written a script and knew exactly what I wanted to achieve. I when I arrived my original storyline turned upside down and I was quickly had to make a new plan.

Benazir crashed into me on a snowboard closely followed by her older brother Raja chasing her frantically down the snowy slope. I hadn't seen a Kashmiri female for 3 weeks, all the sudden theres one on a Snowboard! Raja introduced himself and invited me to come for tea at his fathers hut. I quickly realised that their story was one I could tell.

I finished film school in 2009, since then have worked on a hand-full of film projects. I spend all of my free-time working towards creating my own films and working on others. My ambition as a film-maker is to learn, to teach and to tell stories that people will remember. 
I love to explore. I'm passionate about social justice, conservation and the natural world. If I were to be successful enough to win. It would be a huge step towards being able to call film-making my career.
