A familiar face on Tasmanian film sets, Jane has worked on a number of productions, including The Kettering Incident, The Nightingale and Rosehaven, as well as many short films and other screen projects.
Jane studied at the University of Tasmania, graduating in 1988 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Art Teacher Education. She has enjoyed a long career as a Visual Arts teacher and is currently working in Curriculum as a Senior Project Officer in Visual Arts and Media Arts.
In 2015 Jane was selected to participate in the inaugural Raw Materials mentoring program through Wide Angle Tasmania, which led to her writing and directing The Good Room as part of the 2016 Red Flag initiative. The film gained official selection for screening at the Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival in 2016.
Jane brings a unique perspective to the judging panel of the MyState Student Film Festival, with her broad knowledge of the current curriculum and experience in the classroom, she blends an educational approach to filmmaking with “real-life” involvement in the production of media content from script to screen.
