Richard Dennison is an Australian documentary filmmaker.
His adventure films explore the limits of human endurance and survival; sometimes searching beyond those limits. Wildlife films produced by Orana Films are about people who fight for the rights of all creatures - especially sharks.
Historical documentaries focus on the extraordinary by-products of conflict - a Mutiny on the Western Front; or the fascinating process of rebuilding misfits in the French Foreign Legion. Travel and culture programs lead to some strange personal destinations.
