He’s also made documentary films around the globe from the Great Barrier Reef to central Africa.
Andrew directs lots of commercials, including one just recently choreographing 14 animals to perform in a 60s one-take, and one where a guy copped a ball to the face in slow motion.

He’s currently working with Screentime, and teaches Applied Storytelling For Business for the Australian Television Film Radio School.
