Jack Birtles

Bio

Growing up on the Gold Coast, always with a camera in hand, it was while riding & filming on the semi-pro BMX circuit that Jack Birtles cemented his love of film-making.

Jack finds himself drawn to people pushing themselves in alternative directions, whether that be through writing, dance, music, activism or photography. He likes to incorporate this into his own work; he enjoys mixing new and old, and is quite drawn to older mediums and techniques but developed in a modern environment or vice versa, taking new techniques and adapting them to old practices.

Jack’s work is considered and intuitive; he invites the viewer into a world that is not necessarily familiar, yet enticing; an escape from the norm, and thought-provoking.
