Sydney-born filmmaker, Claudia Pickering began her foray into filmmaking through acting, which lead to creating comedy sketches, short films and webseries’, the first of which was a music video titled Sebring which included Danny Trejo, AKA Machete (Rodriguez), who choreographed and performed a synchronised dance for the clip. She trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles, NIDA in Sydney, and New York Film Academy having been awarded a talent-based scholarship; as well as studying screenwriting at NYU and holding a master’s degree in architecture from UNSW. She has since written and produced two feature length films, one of which she directed, and both have received international festival success. Pickering won the 2015 Tropfest Tropvine competition with a stop motion animation of a giraffe telling a dad joke and regularly creates sketches with her comedy troupe, Frothpocalypse. full text less text
