Short Cuts

2nd Unit Director

Short Cuts was a highly acclaimed 26 episode children's drama series about 9 classmates in a media studies class and how their video projects throw into sharp relief the goings on in their lives. The 2nd unit was originally created to capture the stories supposedly shot by the kids themselves, but then expanded to include fantasy/dream sequences, alternate realities, B stories and sub-plots.

Unlike the typical arrangement where directors work in blocks, 2nd unit worked continuously throughout the five month shoot.

Short Cuts aired on Channel 7 and later on the ABC.
