SHORT BIO

Is there a better way to combine two passions than to be a filmmaker and a secondary teacher? Lisa has taught Media Production since 1993, and considers herself to be privileged to be involved in, as well as experiencing, the changes, developments and advancements across both the film industry and the education sector. Whether working with still or moving images, assisting young people create media art and find their ‘voice’ amongst the many is intensely gratifying. Even after twenty-four years of teaching, she is constantly surprised and inspired by those she has had the honour of working with.
