Join us for a deep dive into Flickerfest film First Drop, where the director and crew members will detail the development and production of the film, shot on location in Alice Springs with a crew including several AFTRS graduates. Learn about studying screen production, pathways into the industry, the process of short film making, as well as building your team and your audience.

Damon van der Schuit is a writer, director and musician born and raised in Alice Springs. He is passionate about telling stories that both entertain and resonate on a humanistic level. Whilst completing a bachelor’s in psychology he began taking classes in screenwriting as a way of instilling some creativity to the science-heavy curriculum. This grew into a passion that eventually led him to study Filmmaking at AFTRS in Sydney. First Drop is his directorial debut, it had its world premiere at the Darwin International Film Festival and plays as part of the Best of Australian Shorts.

The Australian Film Television and Radio School is proud to be the Education Partner of Flickerfest.
