About the Film Maker, Jennifer Frei
“James Cook University’s art degree has assisted me with intercepting the filming industry where I have discovered an immense passion to create short films while enjoying Cairns’ glorious tropical environment. I also love being around people and interacting with my film subjects as I created their promotional films. While my passion in art lies in photography and film, I have been known to work in many different mediums.”
“My intentions in the near future are to further develop my skills in special effects and 3D animation and integrate this into my career in film making. I have started a Vimeo channel where some of the films I’ve already produced can be seen at my Vimeo Page”
