Ming-Zhu Hii

director/ actor/ writer/ producer/

Ming-Zhu has been directing, writing and producing theatre, video and film variously for eight years, and performing professionally for over a dozen. 

She is unique in that she has an indelible passion for both the sublime, irrational artistic, and the strategic and entrepreneurial.

Ming-Zhu has a BA in Dramatic Art from the Victorian College of the Arts, a Business Management Cert. IV, and is currently completing an Advanced Diploma in Screen and Media focusing on narrative project development in the Australian film and TV industry. 

She has worked as a business consultant and social media strategist, was the founding head of events and special projects at Dumbo Feather Magazine, and co-founded The Screen Test Studio - Melbourne's first dedicated remote auditioning service for screen professionals. Ming-Zhu also built and ran Orlando and Ivy, a specialised boutique that traded in art and design objects and promoted the work of local creators. Recently Ming-Zhu produced the inaugural Australian Online Video Awards ceremony at the Docklands Film Studios.

She is the co-director of The Public Studio, an experimental and narrative production company who work across film, video and live performance. 

Ming-Zhu is still also working as an actor, and is a busy voiceover artist, represented for both by James Laurie Management

She is currently developing several film and video projects - long, short and in-between. Plus other things. Catch her if you can.
