Kiah Roache-Turner first started making movies with his brothers when he was 13 years old on a tiny Hi8 camera his mother gave him for his birthday.
Throughout his teenage years he was cutting class and watching up to six films per day in order to self-educate for the only job he ever wanted: film director.
After high school he completed a three year Digital Media Degree at the University of Sydney’s College of the Arts (SCA), with a further year for honours (first class), during which time he worked as a printer & photographer and exhibited as a practicing artist in both group & solo shows.
He worked for six years as head of video content for Australian fashion brand aussieBum, where he travelled all over the world creating popular high-end advertising campaigns, often filling all production & post-production duties himself. It was during this period that he developed his shoot fast, low-budget, DIY approach to filmmaking that he still employs to this day.
In 2010 he formed Guerilla Films with his producer brother Tristan, and together they made several award winning short films & music videos, as well as corporate TVCs, and began their writing career together.
