Television & Cinema Commercials
It may seem strange that a creative director of an advertising agency - responsible for strategic marketing, creative concepts, writing, producing and directing - is also an award winning cinematographer.
This is a result of a career that commenced in a commercial photography studio supplying leading ad agencies, and then starting his own studio that became one of the leading studios in Brisbane at the time.
With 30 years experience as a professional producer Dennis has written directed and shot more than 600 TV commercials, Cinema commercials, short films for corporate, industrial and training, and produced 8 hours of Documentaries for international television.
Amongst these are the Hidden India series which achieved highest rating in its time slot when shown on
Early creative recognition and professional industry awards include a gallery of his still photography, at the age of seventeen, published in Brisbane’s Courier Mail newspaper, David Koffel Australia Cinema Award,
many gold and silver awards from the Brisbane Art directors Club for television commercials and still
photography, SUNNIE Award for jingles, and Urban Design Award for Couran Cove Resort marketing.
Today Dennis has reduced his ad agency involvement, remaining as a creative consultant to a select client
base, to enable time to pursue his first love of film production.
The following lists of projects are in various stages of development, from concept and draft script to pre-
sale, to preproduction and production phases.
The projects represent a diverse range and are designed to be of high commercial and entertainment value
