Billie Dean and Andrew Einspruch have long been involved with the 2012 Phenomenon, filming the Harmonic Convergence in Glastonbury, England in 1987, and studying with elders and shamanic teachers from around the globe.
Billie and Andrew are professional, award-winning spiritual filmmakers who are dedicated to making a difference to the planet. This Sacred Earth: The 2012 Phenomenon is their third film project. The first, Finding Joy, won an AFTI Award for Best Actress, and was the launch feature for the Spiritual Cinema Circle, USA. Seven Days with Seven Dogs, a “dog-umentary”, was screened on ABC’s Stateline as a short, was seen at many short film festivals, and the full length project continues to delight audiences everywhere, especially dog lovers.
Billie and Andrew both have long backgrounds in comedy, writing and journalism. Together they have written nearly 100 children’s books (most of them Andrew’s) , and they also wrote for the Nine Network’s award winning Hi-5, Cushion Kids, Say G’Day, and RockWiz.
With an innate ability to communicate with animals and nature, Billie also practices shamanic healing for animals and people, is a leader in Australian animal advocacy, and is internationally recognised as an animal shaman. She is the author of Secret Animal Business and is one of the wisdom keepers in the book Soul Companions.
Billie and Andrew’s daughter Tamsin has appeared in all their films, working both behind the scenes and in front of the camera.
We are proud to once again have worked with AFI Award-winning cinematographer Anthony Jennings, who lives in Sydney and has shot all our films. He also likes our 8 dogs — which is a bonus!
