Eddie Martin

Since completing studies in film, EDDIE MARTIN has been working on the development of several personal projects, both documentary and narrative. The first of these projects was a one-hour documentary 'Jisoe' which was made with the support of Ghost pictures in Melbourne. Completed in 2004 'Jisoe' was selected to screen at several festivals around the world to great critical acclaim.

Eddie teamed up with producer Lizzette Atkins (Night), the highly experienced editor Ken Sallows (Chopper, Malcolm), and leading Australian film composer Cezary Skubiszewski (Death Defying Acts and Two Hands) for the production of LIONEL.
