Get to know the cat-loving vegan with a passion for filmmaking
My Story So Far
I grew up in Darwin, Northern Territory and I became hooked on filmmaking when I took a video production class in my last year of high school. I followed my newfound passion down to Adelaide and studied screen production at Flinders University, receiving a Bachelor of Creative Arts with Honours in Cinematography. After graduating, I worked as a camera operator and editor for a number of production companies in South Australia which is where I first got my first taste for Wedding Videography.
In 2014 I was offered the role of Video Producer at the Adelaide Football Club. I traveled around with the team, documenting training and game day preparations and produced behind-the-scenes video content for the club's TV show, website and social media platforms. After three seasons of working with the Crows, I wanted to get back into filming weddings and give my own business a go. I registered the name 'Curtis Brownjohn Films' in 2016 and I've been a happy little Wedding Videographer ever since.
I am an only child.
My middle name is Alfred.
I've been a proud vegan since 2016.
I have four cats named Xerxes, Tiberius, Misty & Padme.
I have a black belt in a Korean Martial Art called Soo Bahk Do.
I met my wife in an amateur theater performance of 'The Mikado'.
I've watched How I Met Your Mother from start to finish about 100 times.
In high school I made a video called 'Filmmaking Techniques' that has over 2 million views on YouTube.
