Peter Spann Film Maker
All my life I’ve wanted to make movies. The first time I heard the camera click over on a film I was Directing I paused for a moment to just savour it. I cried. We were filming a comedy. The crew thought this most odd!
It’s like everything in my system has been switched on, turned up, super charged.
I have made magic and I have made rubbish. And yet I know, when I am on set time slows and fastens at once.
I sit mesmerised by words I have written coming alive in the hands, hearts and passion of these beasts called actors and moments later I see it enhanced, enlarged and energised by talented crew.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with international stars like Josh Lawson, and Australian Film and TV stars like Abby Earl, Benedict Wall, Toby Truslove, Michelle Langstone, and Rupert Reid, as well as up and coming actors like Ben Hamilton, Jacqui Purvis, and Hamish Street.
This is what I want to do for every second of what’s left of my life.
What Peter Spann Can Do
In addition to Directing my own films I have been employed as a 1st and 2nd Assistant Director. I am very proficient at planning, making things work within time and budget, moving things along while being respectful of the creative process and making things both fun and professional on set. I also make a great Production Manager.

I am now stepping up to more complex short films.
“Surfer Girl” a fantastic coming of age drama about Bella who is just trying to get through her first day after rehab.

The shoot was hit by cyclone Debbie but soon got back on track.
Surfer Girl is being made as a proof of concept for a TV series.
