Roh Smith, Director, KOJO
Everyone's journey into the creative industry is different. Take Roh Smith for exmaple, who's career path went from a trainee accountant in Tasmania, to Cinematographer to Director at KOJO.
Roh's advice to anyone who wants to become a director is to spend as much time as you can on set, learning all the different roles as well as the difference between what makes a good director and bad director.
"You have to have thick skin because I loose about 70% of the pitches I go for. You have to be able to pick yourself up, because even the best directors in the world get told they can't work on a project'.
