Who's who

Peter Hanlon - Writer/Director/Producer

Peter Hanlon's passion for film was inflamed through his studies of Cinema and Film and TV as a part of a Bachelor of Arts in the 1980s. Of particular note at that time was Chris Marker's Sans Soleil. To say that this film awoke an interest in more experimental moving image art forms would be an understatement. 


Hanlon’s film influences include Marker, David Lynch, Nicolas Roeg, Peter Greenaway and Emir Kusturica. Interests that are somewhat incongruous to his former careers as a banking executive and a systems technician in the military. 

On 2 December 2018, Hanlon joined the SA Film Corporation Board as Chair.

Rick Davies - Writer/ Director/Cinematographer/Editor/Producer

Engineer, manager, lawyer, Rick Davies has now turned his hand to film with good effect. Originally joining Living Not Beige Films to provide legal input, Rick has rapidly developed skills in the world of cinematography. Initially intending to work as second camera and provide stills photography on the Atlantis, Iceland shoot, Rick proved himself a capable "in and under" live performance videographer. Post-production, his task oriented, outcome focussed background came to the fore, rapidly developing valuable skills in editing and post-production VFX. 

Rick's first foray into directing and writing is Ursula, the concept of which was developed prior to an Arctic holiday in late 2017 when the footage for the film was shot. Rick completed the film in November 2018.

Past Director

Cole Larsen - 1964-2019, Director/Producer/Cinema​tographer

Cole was a filmmaker and screen production lecturer with an interest in experimental narrative documentary and drama. Larsen's zest for making films and moving image works led to exhibitions and broadcasts in Asia, the US, South America, Europe and Australia. 

In 2012, he directed his first feature film, Double Happiness Uranium, a dystopian sci-fi set in the future republic of South Australia when oil has run out and uranium is the major source of world energy.

                                       Cole left us in March 2019 after a sudden, short illness.
