Conan is unstoppable. He will do anything to get the shot. Conan took this job because once he heard about the story he couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Conan studied film at the Art Centre College of Design in Pasadena, California, before returning to Australia to complete a BA (Hons) in Studies in Religion at the University of Queensland. Following an interest in theatrical storytelling and collaborative methodologies, he began working variously as a lighting, multimedia and set designer, culminating in a two year stint as in-house lighting designer for Australian Indigenous theatre company Kooemba Jdarra, and lighting and set designer for the award-winning, critically acclaimed production The Great Exception: or The Knowing of Mary Poppins (currently touring around Australia).
Conan’s short films have screened at various festivals in Australia and overseas, including the Damah Festival in Seattle and Sundance in Utah. His media work encompasses writing, producing, directing, lighting, camera and editing for gallery installations, commercial DVDs, music videos, visual accompaniment for music performances, and interactive multimedia for theatre. In 2009 he fulfilled the roles of writer and camera operator on the feature length ABC documentary Sixfthick: Seminal Urges.
