I am an Australian Independent filmmaker with talents in Directing, Cinematography, Writer, Editor, Artist and Actor and my philosophy of film is that film should either mean something, show a great story or be beautiful all while entertaining or impacting the audience. Raised on the likes of David Lynch (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet), Stanley Kubrick (A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey), Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral), Tony Scott (Man on Fire, Top Gun) and Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives); I’m striving to make a place for myself in my industry where I make the art I want, make money and please audiences and studios alike. My biggest goal is to not only create work that becomes historical or cultural landmarks to be forever remembered, but to also inspire a generation of filmmakers after myself was inspired, but to inspire them the way I was inspired to make films: be creative, be different and be smart. I’m not going to be the next Alfred Hitchcock or Orsen Welles: I’m gonna be the one and only Tyrone Bruinsma and that’s what I wanna teach others through my films: that you can’t rise to greatness in someone else’s shadow, but you can learn form them and become your own colossus to show you shadow others can follow from.
