Isaac Elliott

Isaac Elliott is a creator, director, and writer who grew up in Alice Springs. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film & Television from Deakin University, with his graduating short film winning the ATOM Award in 2016.

He works across television series, documentaries, and short films. Most notably, he co-created and directed two episodes of the ABC/Netflix series MaveriX. The action/adventure series follows a team of teenage motocross riders as they attend the fictional MaveriX Academy, an intensive training camp in Australia’s spectacular Red Centre. It was the largest production ever filmed in the Northern Territory and garnered more than 6 million viewing hours on Netflix, an AACTA Award nomination, and Isaac received two ADG nominations for his directing work.

In 2022, he directed WILDLIFERS! for ABC ME and was listed on Inside Film’s RISING STARS directors for 2022. In 2019, he directed The Legend of Burnout Barry for Screen Australia’s Disrupted initiative, earning his first ADG Award nomination.

His diverse work includes documentaries such as Burlesque Blokes, which follows the life of a male stripper, and We Are Sexual Beings, which explores what it’s like to be young, disabled, and sexual in modern Australia. He is also the star and producer of the feature documentary FINKE: There and Back, narrated by Eric Bana.

When he’s not directing, you’ll find Isaac at the cinema, performing on stage at local improv comedy shows, or riding his wheelchair-adapted motocross bike.
