Online masterclass series for Indigenous creators

Over the coming weeks, the Indigenous Department will be hosting free video learning sessions with leading Indigenous creators.

The masterclasses are aimed at early career Indigenous creators, including those with no screen industry experience.

Each masterclass will have room for up to 100 observers, who are able to submit questions live during the session.

The first masterclass will take place at midday (Sydney/Melbourne time) on Wednesday 8 April 2020, with special guest Murray Lui – the acclaimed Director of Photography known for his work on Top End Wedding. The masterclass will go for an hour.

Born on Thursday Island and raised on Poruma; a small community in the Torres Strait – it was a teenage interest in stills photography and video cameras that led Murray Lui to what is now a full time passion and profession.

Most recently, Murray shot director Wayne Blair’s feature film Top End Wedding - written by Miranda Tapsell and Josh Tyler. The Goalpost Pictures-produced film also starred Miranda Tapsell. 2018 also included Season 3 of Luke McGregor and Celia Pacquola's comedy Rosehaven for the ABC, which was produced by Guesswork TV and directed by Jonathan Brough and Shaun Wilson. Murray also shot Season 3 of the Scarlett Pictures/ABC skit comedy series Black Comedy.

In 2017 Murray shot Grace Beside Me. The 13 x 30 minute children's series was based on the book by author Sue McPherson. Wrong Kind of Black, shot in the same year and directed by Catriona McKenzie, debuted to enthusiastic reviews at Series Mania Melbourne at ACMI in 2018.

A Masters graduate of the prestigious Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), Murray is an award winning cinematographer specialising in Drama, TV and Documentary.
