Brodie Poole

Recent QUT graduate Brodie Poole received the Young Australian Filmaker of the year award at the Byron Bay Film Festival in 2015 for his short documentary titled 'The Flight of the Buffalo'.

Poole recently graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Television from QUT, where he discovered in second year that his passion lies in documentary making.

It was in his third year of university when Poole directed his short documentary ‘The Flight of the Buffalo’, which has kick started his film making career. ‘The Flight of the Buffalo’ reflects on Pooles’ own struggles of growing up in a military family in light of his father’s recent departure for a tour of duty with the Australian Chinook Squadron.

Poole has been travelling the film festival circuit with this short film throughout 2015 and hopes to continue to produce emotionally charged human stories in the future.
