Watching Zhang Yimou’s stunning Raise the Red Lantern cemented Yuen-Carrucan’s plans of a career in the film industry. Yuen-Carrucan enrolled in a Communications degree at the University of Technology, Sydney, in 1991. Whilst studying, she undertook several internships, establishing industry contacts with whom she would later work. Upon graduation Yuen-Carrucan embarked on her career in the film industry, starting as a camera assistant on the break-out Australian film Shine by director Scott Hicks.
From there she worked on notable Australian productions such as Thank God He Met Lizzie and with acclaimed directors such as Jane Campion on Holy Smoke, George Miller on Babe 2 and Phil Noyce on The Quiet American. She also worked on a variety of international productions including John Woo’s Mission: Impossible II, Edward Zwick’s The Last Samurai, Zhang Yimou’s Hero, Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Kill Bill 2 as well as Stephen Gagan’s Syriana. This steady stream of work as a camera assistant enabled her to gain invaluable knowledge about the industry, sparking an appreciation for other parts of the film-making process.
She expressed an interest in editing which was noted and encouraged first by Woo whilst working on Mission: Impossible II, then Tarantino with whom she worked as an editing PA on Kill Bill 2. Yuen-Carrucan initially set her sights on becoming a cinematographer. However, as the years passed and the film sets multiplied, she found herself more absorbed with the work of on-set directors. Yuen-Carrucan is currently working on her second script and operates the production company Open Space Films with her husband, cinematographer Florian Emmerich.
is the debut feature film project for writer and director Jasmine Yuen-Carrucan.
