Mohini Herse is writer, director and designer best known for creating the mystery series Appetite. Appetite was commissioned in 2022 by SBS and Screen Australia as part of the SBS Digital Originals initiative. The show is currently in post-production.
As well as developing her own projects, in 2021, Mohini had the privilege of working as Taika Waititi's Assistant on Thor: Love and Thunder. That was a complete dream come true.
Mohini is in development for her web series “HAIR” which has been awarded the Generate Development fund from Screen Australia and was selected to participate in the 2019 Australian Writer's Guild and AFTRS Talent Camp initiative.
She is also known for directing Australia’s first ever Instagram series The Out There (2016). Season 2 of The Out There was commissioned and released by Adolescent Content to an audience of over 90,000 followers and changed the way the local and international industry viewed short form storytelling.
She is currently a resident of the Museum of Applied Arts and Science Film Collective Residency program. She was also a recipient of the AFTRS and AiF Charlie's Hot Desk program (2021) and UNSW ’s SAM Alumni Residency (2020). Mohini is also especially interested in social impact filmmaking, having completed a residency with Wilurara Creative and the Ngaanyatjarra shire in 2018.
Mohini holds a Bachelor of Media and Production (minor in Film Studies) from UNSW as well as a Graduate Certificate in Directing from AFTRS. She also owes a lot of her film smarts (and her hot glue burns) to her early days working in music videos and content for the film collective Oh Yeah Wow.
