CAPTIVATING FILM AND PHOTOGRAPHY.
Adventure and Commercial Storytelling.

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.
