The Screen Guide

JJ da King is the handle this talented 18 year old Indigenous male from Cairns goes under. In reality he is Jarrod Haddow, mild-mannered kid who loves to make short films. Jarrod produces, writes, directs, and creates the CGI and acts in all his films, most times in multiple roles using the cloning technique on Sony Vegas. All his films are on YouTube and he has developed quite a following over the years. This is the only indigenous kid who has his own green screen in his bedroom. Unfortunately in September last year, Jarrod was hit by a motorcycle as he waited to cross the Bruce Highway in Cairns. What was initially a fractured leg resulted in a fat embolism lodging in his brain causing Jarrod to fall into a vegetative state. With the help of the Jacana Brain Injury Unit in Brisbane Jarrod has started to move his fingers and blink. In June this year, he is expected back to Cairns to make the long journey back, if possible at all.
