Austin's years of experience as screenwriter, director, cinematographer, editor and print photographer, brings a soulful approach to film making and portraying humanity.
His infatuation with cinema all started when he saw the movie, Jaws. One of his short films made at 18 landed on Steven Speilberg's desk, who then invited Austin to start his career as writer and director in the US.
After some time behind the lens, he trained as a commercial pilot, then studied at UCLA in the emergency medical field with qualifications in Trauma Life Support and Pediatric Life Support before working ER's and ambulances in south central LA.
When he came back to film he wrote and directed Frank Langella in the feature film, Breaking the Fifth and shot many long form documentaries, including six months with the Presidential Flight in Washington DC, and the feature 'Two Shining Seas' that followed a life changing bike race of 15 wounded veterans from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic...4,000 miles.
