Photographer Max Doyle to screen short film on Sun Mar 2 at Golden Age Cinema in Surry Hills

Picture 20.jpgSydney photographer Max Doyle will screen his second narrative short film this coming Sunday, 2 March at Golden Age Cinema in Surry Hills.

Doyle is known for his extensive work as a commercial, fashion and art photographer, as well as the editor in chief of the iconic doingbird magazine, the creative force behind cult-band Songs, and more recently for his work in film.
Picture 21.jpgHis 2012 short-film Arc, starring Lucas Pittaway (Snowtown) and Isabelle Cornish, was nominated for Best Short Film, Best Director and Best Cinematography at the St Kilda Film Festival 2013. Jack Off is a move to a more understated form of filmmaking where the subject resembles that of a moving portrait, in tPicture 23.jpghis case of Sydney musician and scene-ster Jack Mannix.

Says Doyle: "It's interesting that this film has taken on somewhat of a portrait feel given a lot of my work over the years has been about shooting people, making them feel comfortable in front of the lens."

Picture 24.jpgDoyle has a unique ability to make people feel at ease and during his career has shot Australian stars Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee and Myf Shepherd as well as established supermodels Anja Rubik, Hannah Holman & Jacquetta Wheeler. Recent advertising campaigns include DJ's, Jigsaw, Seafolly, Wrangler, Elle Picture 25.jpgMacpherson, Herringbone, Virgin

Doyle, like many photographers, has been enabled by the advent of DSLR and HD digital video cameras.

Says Doyle: "I've always been interested in movement and film, the way a subject moves, the way the light plays in motion, Picture 26.jpgand even the story of the subject, so exploring filmmaking was a logical step for me to make. The consideration of composition and performance, beyond a single moment captured in stills, has been an exciting challenge for me and I think that it's an area of my work which will only continue to grow."

The film will screen at Golden Age Cinema at 7:30pm on March 2nd, and features non-actors and a host of Sydney musicians including those from Songs, Circle Pit and Bushwalking.
