Liz Jones spends her professional life in pursuit of creative projects and challenges. She has lived in Papua New Guinea, Paris, the US and Sydney. In that time, she gained a BA at Sydney University and attended a film course at New York University. On her return to Australia, Liz made a documentary entitled “The View From Here” about a group of artists making a pilgrimage into Central Australia. This documentary was bought by ABC and Ovation channel (2003).
Starting her film career as a production manager in Papua New Guinea on “Advertising Missionaries’ ABC, to creating an exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW involving Australia’s most renowned female photographers to raise money for Amnesty International, Liz continues to pursue varied forms of creative expression namely through her latest film, a true labour of love that has taken over six years to shoot entitled “Heery’s World”. This film was a finalist in The Antenna Film Festival and was subsequently bought by FOXTEL arts, Qantas and Amazon Prime (global release) amongst others.
In addition, over the past few years Liz has focused on commercial work including short seasonal films for Australian designer Mela Purdie. A combination of story and visual art is Liz’s main focus and area of interest. “I am fascinated by transformational creative processes, whether it is fabric to garment, subject to portrait or transforming footage into finished films. I enjoy the challenge of combining creativity with the intellectual demands of film making”.
Liz is currently working on a feature documentary set in Texas with an anticipated release in 2020.
