Filmmaker. Photographer. Drone Operator.

Hi, my name is Shannon Johnston and I am the person behind Risen Film and am based on the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia. Having always had a close affinity with the outdoors through sports, adventure and travel, my creative work reflects my attachment to such scenery and activity.


Uniquely, my Business/Law Degree studies and strong commercial background allow me to understand the needs of commercial clients and bring great value to such clients both locally and around the globe.  Documentary projects also form part of my creative direction expertise.


I am a positive, calm and adaptable person and always deliver a quality and professional client experience. I also hold a CASA accredited Remote Pilot's Licence (RePL) and Public Liability insurance so you can be confident in working with me on your next project.
