Blues and Roots music lover Vinnie Pickering teaches film at SAE Brisbane, Vinnie loves to work on his motorbike and his upcoming (secret) feature film. 


Professional Bio: 

I've been teaching film for the last 8 years, starting as a High School Teacher in Film and Music before completing Honours in Screenwriting, then moving into teaching Bachelor and Diploma of Film students at SAE Brisbane. On the side I've been a freelance filmmaker, creating music videos and VJ/Motion Design work, but now focusing on Screenwriting, working on a low-budget feature that can be produced in Australia, or easily adapted for overseas.  


What music are you loving right now?

At the moment I'm listening to lots of Willie Nelson, Barr Brothers and Gregory Alan Isakov 

Why do you love working at SAE?

I like working at SAE because the students are here to learn and I can help them to create something better than they thought possible. 

What is the best fun fact about yourself?

I can play a bunch of instruments, and travelled through 20 countries (not counting airport stopovers!)

How do you like to spend your time outside of SAE?

I like to build motorbikes and rock-climb 

What is your life motto?

I don't really have one... Life's too short to bother figuring out what your life's motto is. 

What is your dream holiday destination?

Just chilling in the garage listening to good music and working on a motorbike 

Are you working on any exciting projects at the moment?

I'm currently writing a feature film that I hope to get produced. Not telling you what it's about, yet.
