About Sidat

The past few years have been full of projects that pushed me in new directions. One challenge was to transform a piece of marionette theatre from the Holocaust into a piece of cinema. For Qantas I had the opportunity to shoot the one-take-only shot of the maiden landing of the airline's first Airbus A380.

I have shot commercials (for national TV, the Web and new media), music videos, and many short films, including one where I had to create a flashback sequence in Ancient China and another where I had to cover a scene so that one actor could play three roles in it.

I enjoy working with producers and directors in shaping a project during the early stages, and I believe that is one of my strengths.
