I have been a practising filmaker since my early twenties. In 1979 I wrote and directed a feature film starring Sam Neill and shot by Russell Boyd. Since then I have worked for Film Australia, ABC TV Drama and made over a 100 educational docu/dramas for schools and universities.
I am presently doing a digital/filmed PhD on how sustainability is working its way into mainstream local government. My case study is Fremantle, Western Australia and our first green mayor, Brad Pettit over the four years of his first term. Many of the short movies that illustrate Fremantle's journey can be viewed on vimeo.com/channels/thesixonesixohhh.
For the last few years I have been embedded digital filmmaker at Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute in Fremantle where I am based. This work can be viewed here: vimeo.com/channels/cuspinstitute.
In 2013 I became the City of Fremantle's embedded filmmaker to digitally document 'Freo 2029' - a community visioning project.
When I returned to Fremantle after 30 years in Sydney, I created the concept of 'filmed portraits of the human spirit' which you can view on my web site: sundayarvopictures.com
