Murray FredericksMurray Fredericks' (Co-director/Cinematographer) major photographic series have been produced in the Himalayas, Patagonia, Tasmania and, most recently, Lake Eyre in South Australia. He devotes years to each project. His photographs from the SALT series were first exhibited with Andy Goldsworthy's work at Boutwell Draper Gallery in Sydney. The series was then shown in Shanghai, at the London gallery Hamiltons and at the Louvre as part of Paris Photo. The series is now exhibited at ARC ONE Gallery in Melbourne, where the photographs remain in high demand and many have sold out. SALT is Fredericks' first project as a cinematographer and director.

Michael AngusMichael Angus (Co-director/Producer) launched his career as a documentary filmmaker with The Fight Game, the result of four years spent recording world champion boxer Danny Green's journey from obscurity to sporting hero. Grantlee Kieza of the Australian Daily Telegraph described the film as "the best sports film I've seen and the best study yet on the unique profession that is the fight game." Other credits include Ooldea, commissioned by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, which documents the collaboration of West Australian Symphony Orchestra resident composer Iain Grandage with the Spinifex Elders of the Great Victoria Desert. SALT is Angus' third major documentary project and his first as producer/director. Visit his website for SALT.
