David Gunson has dozens of screen credits in a role that requires both vision, and anonymity: as a storyboard artist, who draws pictures of key shots as a guide for the filmmaking team. Gunson’s own credits as a short filmmaker often touch on war: from ANZAC Short Film award-winner Boots, to the self-funded, Tropfest-nominated Foreign Fields. Gunson has also helmed music clips for Darcy Clay and Hayley Westenra.
In the universe of the film, things should be either true or new. True, in that they're an authentic or visceral world, or new, in placing the audience outside of their experience and expectations. Filmmakers ought to serve up a combination of the true and the new to keep the audience on their toes. David Gunson
