“Hey Shrek,

My name is Jahvis Loveday I’m a young indigenous filmmaker from the Northern rivers of NSW Australia. My family friend has been listening to your podcast for quite a long time, he recently came to me and said that one of your guests mentioned that many spearos would love for someone to edit some of their footage. 
I’ve been spearing and hunting my whole life growing up on the Brunswick heads and Tweed rivers. I’ve learnt from all my elders how to catch fish, where and when, and when not to. 
I thought Id extend my hand to edit spearing videos for whoever wants them out there. I have been studying a bachelor of film (which has been useless) and recently won the Best Young Australian Film Maker Award at the Byron Bay International Film Festival. 
I’ve been editing my own videos for over 3 years now from spearfishing, camping, family trips, and all sorts. 
If you want to check out what my style is like head over to my YOUTUBE channel, which I think I have now 4.43k subscribers and over 266k views. 
HERE is a video of me and my family spearing off Tweed heads as a reference. 
Anyways love the content you are pumping out man, it’s helped me a lot in spearing and sustainability. 
Jahvis Loveday”
