The name is Tess. I am 19 years old and from Australia. I have no idea how to sum myself up in a few sentences. These are my films.
Art is my amniotic fluid. Having a life in which I get to work and experiment with any form would be a life lived well, but film is my ultimate love. My favourite artists include Jane Campion, Joe Wright, Andrea Arnold, Wes Anderson, Steve McQueen, Lynne Ramsay, Benh Zeitlin, Quentin Tarantino, Michel Gondry, Danny Boyle, Francois Truffaut, The Coen Brothers, Tim Burton, Alfred Hitchcock, Martin Scorsese, Terry Gilliam, Stanley Kubrick, Powell and Pressburger, Miranda July, Ingmar Bergman, Edgar Wright, Vera Chytilova, and too many others to name.
I want to make films that make you want to make films. I want to make films that you watch while crying happy and sad tears at the same time. I want to make films that you can't explain. I want to make films that make you smile at strangers, or works of such terrible beauty that you'll struggle to look away. I want to make films. That's really all.
