Filmmaker Jordan Edmeades has an ambitious plan to create a Kyogle Film Academy with weekly workshops held at the Kyogle Cinema.

 “I’m in discussions with Richard and Cheryl Harris from Kyogle Cinema to hire out Cinema 3 (the Cinematography Museum theatre) as the teaching studio,” Jordan said.

This cinema has a vast collection of vintage film projectors.

“I met with the theatre manager Leah Houghton, who said that a local film course will be a fantastic partnership with Kyogle Cinemas.”

Jordan lives at Green Pigeon and he wants to share his 10 years of film-making experience.

He has a background in working with clients experiencing homelessness, substance abuse and family violence.

“I have seen firsthand how tough life can be for some young people. As a result, I am planning to create a range of creative youth projects in Kyogle and villages that aim to empower these young people to begin to express themselves fully and discover that beautiful feeling of finding a sense of belonging, meaning and purpose in life,” he said.

Classes will cover all aspects of the filmmaking process from development (pitching an idea), through production (shooting the footage, and post-production (editing the film) and delivery (screening/distributing the finished film).

Jordan is a film director, producer and cinematographer with credits including Inside the Sydney Opera House (ABC, 2022), Hunted (Network 10, 2023), Ambulance Australia (Network 10, 2022), Stargazing LIVE: Back to Earth with Brian Cox & Julia Zemiro (ABC/BBC, 2019), Behind the Blue Line (SBS, 2018), Australian Shark Bites (Discovery Channel, 2018), and A Stargazers Guide To The Cosmos with Greg Quicke (ABC).

This is a creative space to watch as Jordan creates his academy.
