Wye Keen started making movies on a miniDV handycam in the early 2000s (not as romantic as super 8, he was born a few decades too late for that!)

After completing his Honours in Film & TV at RMIT in 2010, he sailed out to the West Coast of the United States, filming travel documentaries for cruise lines in Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico and the South Pacific. 

From this experience, he developed a deep love of the natural, both in terms of lighting and storytelling; an understanding that has informed his style ever since.

Since settling back in Melbourne, he has been behind the camera on a variety of projects including documentary, commercial, music videos and short films. 

Highlights include:

  • “A Voice that Hears” (2015), a short film he wrote, directed and shot for Gamblers Help Australia to raise awareness in the Chinese speaking community.
  • De Novo (2016), a micro short that placed as a finalist in Uber’s short film competition and screened at Tropfest 2017.
  • Waste (2019), a spoken word poem short produced for “The Rubbish Campaign”, a social justice campaign involving Sir Richard Attenborough calling on multinational corporations to take action on the world’s rubbish problems.
