Clint is an experienced director/designer and professionally works in the entertainment industry by commission. He has a formal background in research methodology at Griffith University and is preparing a book on the reoccurring aesthetics of Spectacle art in western culture. His passion is lighting design and live operation at festivals and concerts.
Clint’s prolific career over the past three decades began studying formalist and classical sculpture at the Canberra School of art. After graduating with distinction he entered the theatre to design stage sets and costumes for traditional and experimental companies. With the rise of popular music festivals in the nineties, Clint then moved onto making monumental fire sculptures which combined performer choreography and laser animation and pyrotechnics. In the nineties, his “Spectacle Art” installations had received national acclaim, and this lead to many commissions by large-scale music events for stages with integrated lighting designs. For the last ten years, Clint has systematically fused his passion for Spectacle Art, and experience in production design to create unforgettably beautiful massive crowd moments. His present position as director of the Byron Bay International Fashion Festival gives the event unique multi-disciplinary edge.
