Aaron Kamp is one of Australia’s premiere filmmakers getting notoriety around the globe for his superior productions. He has won several awards in film festivals in the US including the 168 Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Great Lakes Christian Film Festival in Buffalo, NY.
Aaron’s love of filmmaking began at an early age. In 1993, seeing people queued for blocks to see Jurassic Park – he realised the power of cinema. Aaron went on to study Film & Television at Curtin University in Western Australia, following which we began working in the corporate & event video world.
After working as a Cinematographer for a number of years, Aaron made the leap into directing with his short ‘Never Too Late’. Produced as part of the 2013 168 Film Project, ‘Never Too Late’ went on to be named one of the top 20 finalists, and had it’s world premiere in Los Angeles. Aaron’s second & third projects – ‘Stuck‘ & ‘The Artifact‘ – have screened at festivals throughout the world, winning several awards.
Now with ‘Caged In’, Aaron hopes to garner more attention at international festivals in the lead up to his feature film debut, Hidden Light coming to film festivals near you.
