Since 2011, Jason has been heavily involved with the Sydney International tournament held at Sydney Olympic Park during the first two weeks of the year. Jason was a member of the Tennis NSW ballsquad for five years, having the opportunity to represent the NSW Ballsquad at the Australian Open 2013, before taking the helm as a Ballkid Supervisor in 2016. Through this strong connection with the tournament Jason was driven to create visuals that represented his own personal experience of being on court next to his tennis idols. In 2018 Jason was given the opportunity to do just that — to direct a short film documenting the day-to-day life of a member of the ballsquad. As a supervisor of the ballsquad, Jason was in a unique position which enabled him to capture once-in-a-lifetime courtside interactions between the ballkids and players as well as downtime at Ballkid HQ where close friends are formed.
The Sydney International has been an incredibly memorable experience for Jason and is where he formed some of his closest friends — it is fitting that one of the projects that he is most proud of was filmed under the same roof.
