Naomii Sinclair is here to create change on your screens

31 Oct 2018

Naomii Sinclair had extensive experience within the film and television industry in NSW before becoming the SAE Creative Media Institute Brisbane Campus Manager. Cementing her place within the community by working on features and series including The Great Gatsby, Wolverine, Australia, MasterChef, House Husbands, Animal Kingdom, and many more, Naomii believes there is room for more women within this space. 

Moving to Queensland and starting at SAE as the Industry Liaison Coordinator, Naomii noticed a lack of organisational support for female creators within the industry. With strong ties to the film community in Sydney, Naomii searched for an association that she could connect with in QLD. Not being able to find something that fulfilled her needs, Naomii instead founded the Brisbane Chapter of Screen Vixens herself.

While it is early days for the Brisbane Chapter, Screen Vixens was originally founded in Sydney in 2015 by Leonie Marsh. Since its inception it has expanded nationally with chapters now located in Perth, Brisbane and regional NSW. Through building relationships with complementary organisations such as Screen QLD and Women in Film and Television, Naomii is intent on changing the landscape of the screen industry in Brisbane. 

Screen Vixens aims to build connections and provide support for women in the industry while facilitating solid career pathways and mentor/mentee relationships. In order to achieve this,  Screen Vixen’s objective is to bridge the gap between industry, education and government. Naomii believes by creating these connections there can be a thriving industry in Brisbane with strong female representation. 

But it's not just film that has Naomii's attention, she is a champion of the creative industries in its entirety and Screen Vixens represents all women in creative fields. “My interpretation of screen and Screen Vixens is inclusive of animation, photography, music, design, games, even audio,” she said. 

Diverse representation in Film and Television is important and Naomii believes the that industry will only be further enhanced by female inclusion and collaboration. 

Currently 65 members strong already, Screen Vixens Brisbane officially launches on 8th November 2018. If you are interested to learn more please contact Naomii at n.sinclair@sae.edu
