Vanessa Amorosi & Mark Holden

Australian Music Legends


Vanessa Amorosi is one of the biggest Australian pop stars from the 2000’s. Her single Shine was a breakout hit all over the world.

Mark Holden was her manager and producer. He was one of the biggest Australian pop stars of the 1970’s, who went on to further fame in the 1990’s as a passionate judge on the TV show Australian Idol.

Through the 1990’s and 2000’s, Rachel Dunn, founder of Girl Director, was a rising star in the Music Video world. She directed clips for some of the biggest pop and country music stars of the time.

Rachel directed two of Vanessa’s music videos. Shine and her next single, Spin. Here she is on set filming Spin. We took some time to ask Vanessa and Mark about what it’s like working with Rachel. Vanessa loved how comfortable Rachel made her feel, while Mark gave a big Tick to the Rachel box! High praise indeed from Mark!

Joyce Ong

New Heights Media


When Joyce first came to us she had a highly successful piano school in Brisbane with over 20 teachers. She was also an avid photographer.

She started learning with us to make videos and marketing for her piano school, and it really helped the business grow. Once she got the taste for video she quickly pivoted and sold her business whilst setting up her own video production company. That was the beginning of what is now called New Heights Media. She has been running for the past 5 years with team filming all over the world.

Joyce became so good that we took her to Africa with us in 2019 to film our Elephant documentary (which is currently in production).

Joyce made this client story for her main project over one of our Residential weeks. We are so grateful to have her as a client and friend.

Tracey Morris 

No More Fake Smiles

Tracey and her daughter, Annie Morris, run the charity No More Fake Smiles, which raises money to give a voice to child victims of sexual abuse. When COVID hit in 2020 they had to cancel their fundraising events and knew that video and online marketing was the key to continuing their quest to help children.

With the help of Girl Director they learned how to grow their online presence and started making their own videos. They even created their own TV ads and since then have raised tens of thousands of dollars.

Becoming the directors of their own videos has been a game changer for them.

Stephanie Berryman

Manage To Engage

Stephanie is an author and stress management facilitator from Canada. She was paying people to manage ads and produce videos and social media for her, but wanted to learn how to do it all herself.

It’s expensive paying for others to make videos for you, especially when you need to do it regularly. She learned from us how to do it all herself and now she’s creating videos, social media content all the time and fully understands the tech and analytics now. She loves being in control and saving all that hard earned cash!

Leah Chandler 

Kids-Fit Australia


Leah and her husband have been running yoga classes for children for many years. In early 2020 she began to launch a new online training program, just before Covid started. That’s when she realised it was time to really start marketing her online program. It was clear that she needed to make videos. After making a few by herself, she realised she needed to understand more about video and wanted to make higher quality content herself.

That’s when Leah contacted Girl Director… and the rest is history…

Sally Porteous

Red Lanyard


Sally Porteous is a highly experienced events manager. She loves technology and loves systems that can make business growth easier. Since working with Girl Director she has really lifted her brand and online presence. She is also at work on a fantastic online training program for event managers. She works with both corporate and small business clients and is loving helping more people to make event management easier.

Sheila Vijeyarasa

Sheila V

Sheila is a life, business and spiritual guidance coach based in Sydney. After working in the finance and publishing industry for many years, she wanted to launch herself online. Her video style is very cool and stylised to suit her expanded mindset.

Nicola Kane

Nicola is a social media consultant based in Wellington, New Zealand. She understands social media really well and knew that she needed to learn video better as it is fundamental to social media reach. She also shares about her camera fears and how freeing it has been with Girl Director.

Jada De Goey Teatini-Climaco

Rio Rhythmic Latin Dance Academy


Jada and her husband, Tarcisio, run the largest latin dance school in Brisbane. They already had a great social media presence when they started working with us, including a little bit of video, but they were outsourcing their video production and that was expensive, which wasn’t possible to keep consistent…

So that’s where GD came in. They learned how to make their own videos, how to market with them and how to increase their Social Media presence. They even developed new online training programs and much more.

And then when COVID hit, they were perfectly positioned to keep their dance classes running during the initial lockdown. And they continue to grow from strength to strength.

Chutisa Bowman 

The Two Bowmans


Chutisa and her husband Steve are internationally renowned public speakers, authors in the area of Conscious Leadership. They are also very successful investors with over seven streams of income. When Chutisa came to a Girl Director workshop she realised just how much more she could do to get her message out to the world when she embraced video.

Over the time working with us she has created her own book trailers, short form documentaries, as well as released many powerful excerpts from her and Steve’s keynote speaking events. She’s also become a wizz with Facebook, YouTube and Linked-In. Chutisa is a sponge when it c0mes to learning, and with so many ideas and so much knowledge and wisdom to share, she just keeps on creating more high quality content.
