Biography

Dianna Barrie (b. 1972, Melbourne) found her way into filmmaking as a
middle ground between the pursuit of abstract music and philosophy. Ever
pushing the limits of the hand processing of super 8 led to the
establishment of nanolab, a commercial super8 lab, with Richard Tuohy in
2006. Dianna's film work could be characterised as "direct chemical"
filmmaking involving interventions during hand processing and exacting
editing and/or printing processes; they are then completed with simple
layered sound constructions. This exploration has spread beyond individual
work to her joint establishment in 2012 of Artist Film Workshop in
Melbourne.
