Filmmaker Profile

Shaun
Hepple

Born 1984, Barnsley, United Kingdom.

Originally from Barnsley in the UK, I now live and work out of Sydney, Australia. Making the move down under has opened up an array of opportunities and new experiences working alongside some fantastic folk. I currently freelance and contract in several roles including, direction, camera operation and editing.

With a background predominantly in sport, I recently made the switch to spread my workload in the outdoor and adventure space, paired with corporate and brand productions. Some of my most recent work includes cinematographer roles for the Animal Planet broadcast show ‘Big Cat Tales’, shooting in the Masai Mara and documenting some of the conservation efforts and storytelling narratives of the big cats in the area. For this we used some pretty cool kit, shooting on RED and using the epic Canon Cine-Servo 50-1000mm.

Roles Reversed

This was my first time presenting to camera. Normally behind the camera, it was an interesting perspective to see the mindset switch when the roles are reversed. I wanted to try and get a better understanding of what my clients/talent were going through when given direction.

Needless to say, I loved the experience and look forward to more ‘out of my comfort zone’ gigs like this.
