Dave Hukka is a young filmmaker based in Newcastle, he has directed and shot several award winning short films; and has done promotional videography for various organisations in his local community. Dave believes that everyone deserves a chance to follow their dreams, and wants to help give youth an opportunity to achieve their dream jobs and careers.
Music Producer/ Video Director
A creative individual who always strives to deliver his passion with much dedication. Although, he is a graduate from the University of Sydney and University of Technology Sydney, he never gave up his passion for music and cinematography. He is the Founder of Stash Motions, a freelance media company, that provides photography, videography, music production and marketing needs for clients. He is keen to help the youth and guide them as much as possible with what they want to achieve.
Law Student & Dancer
I’m a law student, yet aspire to delve into acting. I’ve been a dancer, performer and choreographer (hip-hop and popping) for the past 7 years and am highly passionate about doing shows, teaching dance and performing. I’ve performed with various International stars and at high profile venues like Sydney Town Hall, Entertainment Centre and the Opera House to name a few. I believe creative industries such as the performing arts are underrated and the youth deserve to have a support system to develop their talents and aspirations. I give full support to any initiative that provides this and would love mentoring the youth in pursuing their dreams.
Teacher, Dancer & Fitness Instructor
My name is Shawin and I am currently a teacher, fitness instructor and dancer who has a strong passion for the performing arts. I believe everyone needs a creative outlet to express themselves and to help maintain balance in their well being. I think it is important for young people to explore different elements of the arts, and be given the opportunities to do so in a safe environment. It is here where they can feel safe to challenge themselves, and develop their own sense of identity and self confidence.
I have done my BSc (Telecommunication Engineering) and Post Graduation from Curtin University Sydney in a discipline of Project Management. Radio Jockeying is one of my passion which I am following from last six years and would love to carry on with. The main reason for helping, rather guiding would be more appropriate word here, is that I really want the young generation to explore their hidden talents and skills at their earliest age so that they can have that chance (which most of the people miss out) of studying subjects which co exist with their passion.
RAAF / Dancer / Choreographer
My name is Alisha Clarkson and I am a permanent member of the Royal Australian Air Force as well as maintaining a balanced career as a dancer, teacher and choreographer in the performing arts industry. Although juggling such diverse careers is challenging I feel that with hard work, drive, dedication and determination I can successfully achieve the goals I set. I am hoping I can use my experiences in life to inspire youth today to be able to achieve their dreams and help them believe that anything is possible.
My name is Daryl Morante and I have many years working in the entertainment industry as a freelance dancer specifically in the fields of commercial dance and choreography. I also have an extensive portfolio of work as a model, actor and singer. I believe that if you have a strong passion in your youthful years always follow that gut feeling and you will see everything that you go through all adds up to your ultimate purpose in life.
