A behind the scenes journey with Set Decorator Christian Petersen.

Christian has worked on many successful Australian and international productions including Redfern Now, Tracks, The Railway Man, The Straits, Eye of the Storm and East of Everything just to name a few.  He will share tales of his professional journey, his career highlights, how he got started in the industry and how he got his big breaks.
