Dealing with Destiny: Feature Film 90 minutes Starring Luke Arnold 

This is a $1 million  feature film made in Australia. I was hired as the Film Director. The film is about the final day of four university students who go on a final day muck up that ends in total mayhem.

I was the DOP on this film and I shot this amazing film on a micro budget of $2000. I ony had a crew of three and some how managed to shoot in the rainforest on tracks and using a considerable amount of Hand Held and Steadicam.
