John is the Executive Producer for the Short Film GO FISH. 'GO FISH' is a short drama that confronts the struggles of a socially unaccepted boy who, traumatized by an untimely death, develops an obsession with fishing in order to reconnect him.
Ostracized, belittled and misunderstood by his peers, young Sam's scars run deeper than anyone knows. After a violent accident Sam now spends his afternoons upon the school sports shed, his fishing line cast among a mass of schoolyard jeers and hurtful words, fishing for his father, for salvation, for hope, and just maybe, for the healing powers of friendship.
Go Fish has been selected in the 2014 St Kilda Film Fest, Long Beach International Film Festival, Rhode Island Film Festival and the Rome International Film Festival.
John took the reigns as Executive Producer on his first short film in 2012. He worked with an acclaimed cast and crew with experience on shows such as Neighbours, Sea Patrol, Terra Nova, Beauty and the Beast, Sea Change and Underbelly

9-90 - Documentary
John made the documentary 9-90 while volunteering in South Africa. Exploring the lives of people from 9 years to 90 years old and how times have changed for better and worse John interviewed people across the poverty stricken area. With no power and no water the environment was gut wrenching for John who saw it as an opportunity to share the stories of those less fortunate and encourage others to sponsor in areas of need.
9-90 is currently in the editing room and is due for release soon.
