The Howling Girls by Sydney Chamber Opera - Editor

Commissioned by Carriageworks, this is a series of three short videos documenting the development of The Howling Girls by the Sydney Chamber Opera; a work that sees soprano Jane Sheldon taking singing, breathing and noise-making to dizzying heights. Created by director Adena Jacobs, composer Damien Ricketson and soprano Jane Sheldon; featuring a chorus of teenage girls from The House that Dan Built.

Shot by Bonnie Elliott.

Edited on Premiere, 2018.

 

Katharina Grosse at Carriageworks - Promotional Videos / Exhibition Video Editor

Videos for Carriageworks' Katharina Grosse exhibition. She is full of thoughtful insights about the conservative nature of the art-world, inequality, the way a spray-gun allows access to an ‘“un-interruped thought in yellow”, how a painting  is a membrane the artist walks through to reach the audience, and so much more.. A real joy to edit down her interview.

Shot by Bonnie Elliott.

Edited on Premiere, 2017.
