As an art college graduate, Austen cut his teeth in post-production at The Mill, Producing and immersing himself in the world of post whilst working alongside directors and learning all aspects of commercials film making.
Through his work, Austen developed a passion to understand the business from the other side and decided to move across into Production. After 3 years working with his sister (Sally) and his mate (Ringan) he finally took the plunge into Directing on a Swatch viral. His inaugural project very swiftly led to more work for Swatch, TFL, Sky, The Sun, Carling, Nike, Suzuki and many others. Most recently his film, ‘Tu Gutes’, launched the 2016 ADCAN awards, whilst his humorous tale of teaching a child to ride their bike launched a new campaign for Aldi.
Austen is as comfortable with commercials as he is with multi-platform, content driven productions and is relishing the prospect of taking on as much work as he can to add to his fast developing reel.Austen currently has his first short film "Pinsopsida" in post-production.
