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 ships in Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico and the South Pacific.
Since settling back in Melbourne, he has been behind the camera on a variety of projects including documentary, commercial, music videos and short films.
- “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.
