Pablo Araus

Director, Editor, Camera

Made for roughly $60,000, the debut feature from Pablo Cristobal Araus Lobos was 2001 award-winner The Waiting Place, a tale of two escaped convicts trapped in an abandoned psychiatric hospital. In-between a prolific diet of short films — many made for the 48 Hour film contest — the multitalented Chilean-Kiwi has gone on to direct two more features: culture shock comedy Curry Munchers (aka Vindaloo Empire) in Auckland and New Delhi, and South Island-set thriller Netherwood. He has also directed on hit show Let's Get Inventin', offbeat web series Pariah, and season one of web comedy The Adventures of Suzy Boon.

I press record therefore I am. Pablo Araus
