About

Hi, as the website name suggests, I’m Brendan Black, a Melbourne-based filmmaker, writer and playwright.  My first play, ‘Trotsky and Friends’, premiered at the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.  I have written, produced and directed 8 short films and have two feature films in development.  In 2012 I was one of the co-founders of the Czech and Slovak Film Festival of Australia and its producer for the first 3 seasons.

I write for various lifestyle magazines on topics such as wine, art and travel, and I’ve been featured in Fairfax newspapers and Royalauto. I also work as a proofreader/editor, as well as a freelance camera operator and copywriter.

I have experience in:

  • scriptwriting
  • script-editing
  • directing/camera operation
  • producing
  • editing

If you’re looking to collaborate on a project, or for a quote for proofreading/editing work, please contact me.
