Melbourne based Kiwi Lizzy Bailey describes herself as a
self confessed ‘curious creative at heart’.
Her work is narrative fiction, creating films that are honest,
warm, engaging and at times funny. At times dark, however
always with a humorous aesthetic. Her love for people makes
her a powerful director, looking for ways to push the boundaries,
sometimes making us laugh in the process.
Lizzy’s love for filmmaking began at a young age as she documented
everything making short films with the family video camera. She
then studied Film at Canterbury University in NZ, before moving
to Melbourne to attend VCA.
Her inimitable observations of people are demonstrated in the way
she directs her talent, develops her characters and communicates a
story. Bailey’s work is authentic, rich and unique – an inquisitive
director always exploring ideas.
Lizzy has directed commercials for brands such as Citibank, SPC,
Origin, Solo, NAB, Barbie, Kellogg’s and Bonds.
She won Best Female Director “Frothing Female Award” at Freshflix
Festival and was a finalist for best comedy at Setting Sun Festival.
