“Jack McCoy is, without doubt, one of the most entertaining speakers I’ve ever encountered. He’s ridden the wave of change from film to digital, remaining relevant and original.”
Sean Cousins, Melbourne Age
“Once Jack begins, his magic unfolds; showing us clips and photographs of his incredible career and all the while narrating his life story. Punctuated with humour and with his extremely visual method of detailing his history, he had the room mesmerised.”
Warwick Fields, President Australian Cinematographers Society
“When I saw Jack McCoy’s underwater surfing footage put to the soundtrack of Blue Sway, I was blown away with the result, check it out.”
