Cesar Salmeron is a Cinematographer/ Director based in Melbourne. As a DP, he has provided his work to St Kilda Film Festival 2015 Best Documentary Winner ‘The Eagle’as well as AACTA/ AFI nominated feature documentary ‘Shadow of Doubt’.
Generally found with one eye closed behind the viewfinder, some of his directing credits include three seasons of Grand Designs Australia. Even though he likes getting his hands dirty and being the one behind the camera, when the right project turns up he sits in the director’s chair and makes the weird and wonderful come to life.

I’m a Melbourne based film maker and musician. I have a BFA from the Victorian College of the Arts majoring in Film and Television and now work as a freelance film maker. Currently I’ve been in post production for a feature film that I’ve written, produced and am directing. It’s about young musicians in Melbourne trying to make it. To create this short I used excerpts from the film including footage shot at the Evelyn in Fitzroy and overdubbed it with a monologue I wrote about how music connects people. It also features music from my band Twin Waves.

As a lover of music and an aspiring young filmmaker, I am constantly inspired by live music and the reaction it has amongst people spawning from any background. This film describes the sheer communion and binding nature that contemporary live music provokes through the eyes of a young electronic musician; Jack Mclaine. He was perfectly able to describe the purpose and beauty of live music within society, his words inspired the footage captured for the project.
