Director/DOP

Kaye Harrison is a documentary filmmaker who approaches all stages of production with the very highest level of personal integrity. Kaye began her career as a DOP and has worked both in Australia and overseas on high profile projects including THE REAL WORLD – NEW YORK 2001 and THE OSBOURNES 2002. Kaye has also worked across a number of other factual genres including The 7:30 Report, Dateline, Insight and Stateline. More recently Kaye has begun directing and shooting her own documentaries. She is drawn to topics which have a profound physical, social and emotion impact on the lives of individuals but are largely unexplored as they are plagued by fear and ignorance. In 2005 Kaye directed and filmed CROSSING THE LINE which was broadcast on ABC-TV and won a number of awards. THE LONG GOODBYE is her second documentary and will broadcast on ABC-TV in 2011. Whilst developing her own documentaries, Kaye continues to work as a director/DOP (2nd unit) on the landmark series LIFE@1 2006, LIFE@3 2008 and LIFE@5 2010.
