About

My name is Rhys Votano and I produce films and interactive experiences for clients from around the world.

I worked in agencies as a Senior Producer but went out on my own recently as a way of directing and filming work for the organisations I feel passionate about.

My portfolio is quite broad so it is best to look at my recent client work which includes promotional video for bio-designers at the 2019 London Design Festival; Developing the brand identity and website for the Global Biofoundries Alliance, An interactive exhibition on the history of video art in Australia for dLux Media Arts, A projection mapped performance at the King’s College Chapel in Cambridge for Explorers Society; A documentary about cheese for the V&A featuring Alex James, Heston Blumenthal, Helene Steiner and Ruby Tandor; Digital billboards for Synbitech Europe’s leading conference on Synthetic biology; Animations and fun little Gifs to help start-ups get VC backing; And a gallery installation questioning the nature of light and presence at Artereal Gallery. You can find more about these projects on the site.

I have an MA in Film and Digital Image from Sydney University, College of the Arts in addition to my Bachelor in Screen Production from Macquarie.

I also lead seminars and interactive workshops in which participants make films through improvised games (as opposed to scripts). These workshops have been run for corporate clients, inner city schools as well as remote and regional community centres.
