About Us

Jack Sheridan graduated with Honours (First Class) in Screen Studies, after studying Theatre and Film in Australia and the USA. Following two darkly cinematic short dramas (SCHISM, SOLIPSIS), Jack established his reputation with genre bending psychological thriller DAY DREAMS, for which he was awarded the SAFC's $50 000 Filmmaker of the Future Award.

Since then Jack has directed many dramatic and commissioned works and won a number of awards for his films, which have screened internationally. His next ambitious short drama YURI SHIMA drew on his mixed Asian heritage in a magical realist re-imagining of an ancient Japanese fairy tale. The film's unique combination of romance and surreal VFX led to directing work at several major production companies around Australia.

Jack's most recent short INJURY TIME stars Australian icon David Field. The high concept narrative is told in real-time in one continuous shot. The short represents his growing fascination with high-concept stories mixing the thriller and drama genres.

Jack is currently developing a slate of feature projects, including a full-length version of the thriller INJURY TIME.

Laneway Pictures was formed to cater to the unique demand in Adelaide for a boutique production company that provides clients with high production values on a budget.

Jack works with professional personnel according to the demands and budget of each production.
