#5 - Tom Swinburn (Director/Cinematographer)

This week we chat with Melbourne-based director & cinematographer Tom Swinburne from Amalume Films. So far, Tom has shot four microbudget feature films. These include Metaffliction (which you can watch for free online here), and Pretty Good Friends (which is due for a limited theatrical release very shortly).
