WELCOME TO RISEN FILM
Hi, my name is Shannon Johnston and I am the creator behind Risen Film. Based in the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland Australia, I have always had a close affinity with the outdoors through sports, adventure and travel, and my work reflects a passion for outdoor activities, exploring amazing landscapes and a strong interest in businesses.
I have operated as a freelance content creator for 6 years and specialise in outdoor adventure and commercial business storytelling, and have experience producing media in many other industries and genres including documentaries, technology, trades, industrial, health, agriculture, products and lifestyle.
I enjoy working with new people in exciting places, and hold a CASA accredited Remote Pilot's Drone Licence (RePL) and Public Liability insurance. I am available worldwide.

Together with KTM Australia and Swiss 8, this project explored the mental health benefits of motorcycling. Swiss 8 is a proactive mental health charity, founded by Australian military veterans. I rode around with my camera backpack capturing the action across some difficult and exciting terrain.

CANON R3 - NATIONAL PRODUCT REVIEW
For this project I was commissioned to capture drone footage at the Norwell Race Track as part of a National Product Review video for the release of the highly anticipated Canon R3 camera. The Motorplex was hosting a driver training day while the crew captured interviews and content with Supercar Photographer, Mark Horsburgh.

This project was significant in both subject matter and it's screening at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021. This video focused on environmental sustainability through advanced farming technology, and it's positive impact on climate change.
