Walking the path of a filmmaker is an exhilarating journey, and I've been fortunate to have an guiding duo in Aquarius Films. Founded and led by the remarkable Angie Fielder and Polly Staniford, this award-winning production company has etched its name in the entertainment industry with its bold and female-led projects.
What's even more incredible is that I've had the honor of being mentored by them as part of the Ones to Watch Program. Fielder and Staniford have carved their niche by championing diversity and weaving narratives that resonate on a global scale. Their impactful stories have left an indelible mark, inspiring audiences worldwide and changing the way we experience cinema.
Aquarius Films boasts an impressive portfolio of critically acclaimed films and television series. From the Academy Award® and Golden Globe-nominated "Lion," featuring talents like Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, and Rooney Mara, to the gripping "Berlin Syndrome" directed by Cate Shortland, their work stands as a testament to their dedication to storytelling excellence.
Mentorship is a transformative experience that transcends learning, it's about forging a connection with mentors who share their experiences, wisdom, and insights. Through the Ones to Watch Program, a prestigious initiative by Screen Producers Australia, I've had the chance to connect with industry leaders, attend enriching workshops, and expand my horizons.
Experience their powerful storytelling with "Savage River" a captivating series directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and starring Katherine Langford. You can catch this experience on ABC iView and Paramount, an exploration of storytelling that's shaping the future of filmmaking.
