In 2018, I partnered with New Zealand-based production company Resonate to produce and co-direct the highly acclaimed climbing documentary Pacific Lines. Funded by The North Face Australia/NZ, Pacific Lines tells the story of Australian teenage elite climber Angie Scarth-Johnson as she journeys to the remote island of 'Eua in the Kingdom of Tonga in search of both new routes to explore and connections to her cultural identity.

The film was completed in early 2019 and was fortunate to feature in adventure film competitions around the world including Kendal Mountain Film Festival (UK) and NZ Mountain Film Festival where it picked up a Special Jury Award. 

Co-directed with NZ-based filmmaker Simon Waterhouse, Pacific Lines was a passion project from both sides of the Tasman, showing the value of collaboration in our small adventure community here in the southern hemisphere.
