Stage Whispers describes Brie as having… ” a gift for physical comedy and takes some brave risks, especially in the improvisation”. In 2019, Brie produced and performed in ‘FLOOD’ a part of Anywhere Theatre Festival which won an Anywhere Award and universally glowing reviews. Following this success, Brie produced and performed in ‘Sometimes It’s Hot Like The Sun’ in late 2021.

At Imperfect Creatives, Brie is your first responder. She’ll be there to direct and manage your projects with you, so you can focus on the important stuff. Brie is an artist too, so she gets it.

Jack Alfred Kelly

Director of Operations | Creative Wizard | Yes Man

After studying at the University of Southern Queensland, Jack joined the team at the Seven Network shooting and editing news for their flagship state news bulletins. Outside of Seven he has created marketing material for entertainment and theatre companies, designed audio and lighting for an award winning theatre production, built a studio and directed live television content for online distribution.

In 2020, Jack departed his career in news and began working full-time, producing content for television on 7Mate’s show ‘Step Outside with Paul Burt’.

Jack has expertise in the whole spectrum of video content production including camera, audio, lighting and editing. He can also build sets, write and has killer dance moves (what can’t he do?!). When directing he’ll tell it how it is and gently guide you to that tear jerking performance we always knew you had inside you.

“Can you do that again, but better?”
