My filmmaking journey began in the early 2000s with a miniDV handycam (a few decades too late for the romance of super 8!) As I ventured into filming travel documentaries in Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, and the South Pacific, I discovered a profound love for the natural world. This passion for nature and storytelling has since become the driving force behind my unique style and approach.

Now based in Melbourne, I pour my creative energy into a wide array of projects, specializing in commercial, corporate, and online content. Alongside my primary work in these domains, I wholeheartedly pursue my passion for narrative and documentary filmmaking, infusing each project with the same dedication and love for storytelling.

Notable Highlights:

  • “A Voice that Hears” (2015) – A poignant short film that Wye Keen wrote, directed, and shot for Gamblers Help Australia. This powerful work aimed to raise awareness within the Chinese speaking community, tackling significant issues through the art of filmmaking.
  • “Waste” (2019) – A thought-provoking spoken word poem short created for “The Rubbish Campaign,” a social justice initiative featuring Sir Richard Attenborough, advocating for multinational corporations to address the global waste crisis.
  • “No Friends but the Mountains” & “Chasing Aeolius” (2023) – an exhilarating documentary capturing a paraglider’s journey through the stunning landscapes of the Zagros Mountains in Kurdish Iraq, as well as the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily.
