His filmmaking career began by filming motorcycle races and editing short event documentaries, then filming the national racing series in 2009. Isaac then moved to Melbourne full time to study film in 2011. In 2013 his graduating short film, A Silent Waltz, went on to win awards both locally and internationally. He followed this up in 2016 with his Honours level film, A Static Wind, which awarded Best Tertiary Short Fiction at the 2016 ATOM awards, and a finalist position in he 2017 lexus Australia Short film fellowship.
Currently Isaac is teaching at Deakin University and has recently produced the feature documentary Finke:There and Back and is a creator on a kids Television show Maverix, currently in development.
As a wheelchair user his autobiography will definitely be called ‘Living life at butt level - The Isaac Elliott Story’.
