1. Tell me something about your life and the educational background
I am currently studying Art in Perth, Western Australia, I have studied some Graphic Design and Photography in conjunction with my Art studies.

I started about 2 years ago as a process of documentation that was more comprehensive than taking still images.

Performance, new media, stimuli.
4. How do you develop your films, do you follow certain principles, styles etc?
I try not to.
5. Tell me something about the technical equipment you use.
I use a canon 400D for digital stills, and EOS 650 or FTb for film stills. For computers I work with both Macintosh and PC and I am always experimenting with my Wacom tablet. In addition I am fond of screen captures and webcams.
6. What are the chances of new media for the genre film/video in general and you personally?
The chances are still being calculated, I think.

With very little budget.
8. Do you work individually as a video artist/film maker or do you work in a team? if you have experience in both, what is the difference, what do you prefer?
At the moment I work alone, having never worked with a film crew of more than 3 at a time so I could only say that logistically, a team is more difficult to organise.

Karen Yasinsky, Mitch Schauer, Peter Chung, Marvin Minsky, information systems and corporate philosophy.
10. What are your future plans or dreams as a film/video maker?
To continue to produce work and have some experience with new technologies as they become improved and more available.
