Past Successful Graduates
Peter SpierigSchool: Griffith Film School (GFS)
Field of Studies: Film
Major Achievements: Twins Peter and Michael Spierig first became interested in film making back in the mid 1980s and at the age of 10 began making short films. While in High School Peter Produced and Directed a number of short films that won him "Most Promising New Filmmaker" acclaim at the Queensland New Filmmakers Awards (QNFA).
In 1997, the brothers graduated from the Queensland College of Art. Peter graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television while Michael graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. While at university, they jointly produced and directed a number of award winning short films.
Peter and Michael continued to write and direct short films while making a living in the advertising industry. Their final short film “The Big Picture” went on to win and screen at several prestigious national and international film festivals including Rotterdam International Film Festival at which it was purchased by a US Distributor. After making over fifteen short films and dozens of television commercials, the Spierig Brothers decided to take the leap into feature film production in early 2000, writing and directing their first highly regarded feature film, Undead. Self-funded and made locally, the zombie film quickly gained a cult-following.
In 2010 Griffith Film School honoured their ongoing commitment to filmmaking and their continued support of local industry with the presentation of the inaugural GFS Alumni Award. The brothers work is continued through their production house Blacklab International Pty Ltd.
