Film & Stage Crew, Photographer

My name is Mason Hoffman, a film maker/editor situated on the Gold Coast. Over the past 8 years, i’ve written and directed several genre-based short films, one notably winning awards for ‘Best Documentary’ and the ‘Gold Coast Film-Making Award’ for Exploring the Myth of the Mummy’s Tomb at the BUFTA (Bond University Film and Television Awards) in 2007. My recent work has been as a Production Designer and Editor on low budget Television Commercials, notably a short film Rain Dance which won the award for ‘Best Film’ at Bond University’s CentreScreen Premiere Awards Presentation. As a Graduate, I am continuing to work with my fellow film-makers, mostly as Editor and onset. I wish to continue evolving and learning as a film maker through video editing and film shoots, as well as continue work on and direct short films and music videos.
