Co-Founder

Andrew Mackenzie

ANDREW IS A CO-FOUNDER OF AETHER FILMS, WHERE HE HAS WORKED AS THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR SINCE THE COMPANY'S INCEPTION.

ANDREW HAS PREDOMINANTLY WORKED IN THE COMMERCIAL SPACE, WITH TRILOGY: NEW WAVE BEING HIS DIRECTORIAL DEBUT FOR A FEATURE FILM. HE IS NO STRANGER TO THE SURF INDUSTRY, HAVING BEEN MENTORED BY WORLD RENOWNED SURF DIRECTOR TAYLOR STEELE. ANDREW HAS DIRECTED COMMERCIALS FOR A NUMBER OF CLIENTS INCLUDING THE KELLY SLATER WAVE COMPANY AND WORLD SURF LEAGUE.

ANDREW’S KNOWLEDGE OF SURFING’S MODERN LANDSCAPE AND EXPERIENCE WITH VIRAL CONTENT CREATION ENSURED THIS PROJECT AS A DREAM FIT FOR HIM AS A DIRECTOR. HIS CREATIVE VISION AND EXPERIENCE ENABLED HIM TO BOTH APPEAL TO THE BUILT-IN SURFING AUDIENCE WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY REACHING AND GROWING A NEW AUDIENCE.

WHEN HE ISN’T CHASING SWELLS ON SHOOTS, ANDREW CAN BE FOUND RIDING WAVES AROUND HIS HOME, GOLFING OR ENJOYING THE COMPANY OF HIS WIFE, ANNIE AND DAUGHTER, NINA.
