Clare was a finalist in the 2014 Cinestory Fellowship; a semifinalist in the prestigious Academy Nicholl Fellowship in 2017; and her feature screenplay,
Broken Head, won the inaugural Byron Bay Film Festival International Screenplay Competition in 2017. Clare’s debut short film, Consent, has screened locally and internationally, including at two Academy Award qualifying festivals (Palm Springs International ShortFest & Cleveland International Film Festival). Clare has a passion for telling thematically resonant, female-driven stories that mix humour with pathos, and currently has multiple projects in development.

Lewis started his filmmaking journey with a feature length rock climbing documentary, which helped raise awareness for the sport, and funds for not-for-profits to lobby for climbing access. Since then he has worked with a number of businesses to help refine production practices and to produce commercial and creative products. In 2016 Lewis moved to the Northern Rivers with a passion for supporting a creative community. Between working as a freelance digital content creator, and producing on creative projects, Lewis is dedicated to expanding his knowledge of the industry to produce high quality scripted and factual content.
