Film Production, 2023
Hi, I’m Sam Wright.
I’m an independent filmmaker hailing from Batemans Bay, NSW. I can remember making short films since back when I was a kid, and once l completed my Multimedia HSC project, I enrolled at the University of Canberra with hopes of turning my hobby into a career. Since starting my degree, I have learnt different skills related to post-production and can professionally edit both video and audio using various software, such as Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. I occasionally showcase some of my work on my personal YouTube channel, my username being samdersonvideos or Ocean Wizard.
Throughout my university course, I have utilised my knowledge of editing and general filmmaking to assist with certain projects, such as ‘Mara’ — a drama revolving around the troubles of an infertile woman and more recently, an upcoming horror film which I am in charge of editing, titled ‘The Fae’.
In the future ahead, I might like to start my own freelance editing business or possibly seek employment in Australia’s film/television industry, preferably in a post-production job. Venturing further, another ideal path is to be employed at the online social media company Rooster Teeth, based in Austin, Texas, as l watch them frequently and I would be interested in a video editing position there.
