David Napier

David’s career started as a child performer on stage and TV.


As a Director he's made TV drama, children's scifi, and acclaimed war documentaries.


He's been nominated for Best Direction in Children's TV by the Australian Director’s Guild and his award-winning short films have played in numerous festivals and on networks around the world. 


A hallmark of his work is his rapport with actors, attention to story, visual style, and putting more on screen than tight budgets usually allow for. He’s also crafted a myriad of educational, corporate, and music videos for some of Australia’s leading entertainment and media companies.


As a Post Production Supervisor, Editor, VFX Director and Consultant with a deep knowledge of modern production workflows and technologies, David contributes to feature films, TV, and new media projects of all shapes and sizes, and has consulted on story and production development for companies in Australia and the UK.


As Producer, he’s overseen children’s shows for the Nine, Seven and 10 Networks and is currently developing several major film, TV and online projects.

On the other side of the camera he’s an accomplished screen puppeteer and character performer with credits ranging from Jim Henson’s Muppets to preschool series for national Networks.
