This week on Monash Spoken Word we are proud to present local independent filmmaker, videographer and author Dia Taylor.
She has been working behind the camera professionally since 2007, founding her own event videography company Taymaynari Productions in 2017. Dia’s passion for film first began at age twelve when she would help her aunt Silvana McCausland on her films; ‘Rules Is Rules’, ‘Chocolate Fetish’, and ‘Shed Dwellers’. Dia worked as an actor and a production assistant on these projects.
Dia studied filmmaking briefly at NIDA, Sydney (The National Institute of Dramatic Arts) in 2009 before completing certificate III in digital media at The Gordon Institute of TAFE, and a bachelor’s degree of film production at SAE Institute in 2018.
