>>RAN...........................................................................<aired Jan/Feb 2006>
“Welcome To Masig, home to 200 or so Torres Strait islanders and for four months, the 70 strong cast and crew of RAN [Remote Area Nurse]. A six-hour SBS dramatic miniseries about the life of an island nurse. The first television drama ever made in the Torres strait, RAN was shot entirely on location on the tiny coral cay, best known by its European name Yorke island, which measures less than three Kilometers long and 800 meters across at its widest point”.
Kylie Miller THE AGE Green Guide Cover Story Dec 29th 2005

>> Alexandra's Project....................................................<see features profile>
" The camera rises over a picket fence, climbs up and to the left, and crawls across the drawn blinds of a first-floor window. A cut takes us indoors." - Jake Wilson, sensesofcinema

"The film’s camera work – now restlessly predatory, now balefully clinical – and moody, claustrophobic ambience create sadistic tension. This is a profoundly unsettling film – the only thing we can be certain about is that we do not know who to trust or where to place our sympathies." – Steve Gravestock, Toronto Film Festical

>> Bad Boy Bubby........................................................................................< >
This unique film was the first collaboration of Ian Jones as Cinematographer and Rolf de Heer Director. This highly experimental film which Ian is credited as the Supervising Cinematographer was unique in that Ian was the Dop on the first and third acts. The second act was lit by different filmmakers experienced and not so experienced. The rationale behind this technique was to exploit Bubby’s ventures into the big bad world!
The filmmakers were allowed control of the lighting, Ian co-ordinated the regular crew and was the camera operator during the second act.
