a glimpse into a stark raving world...

stark raving founder Natasha Pincus is both a qualified medical scientist and lawyer, but over a decade ago left both professions to become a dedicated filmmaker.

As a director, Natasha's first and enduring passion is the unique medium of music video. She has won two ARIA awards for Best Music Video and has been nominated for the MTV VMA for Best Music Video and Best Editing. Natasha’s iconic video for Gotye’s SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW has been viewed over 1.5 billion times on YouTube. Natasha recently completed a major film work for the Australian stage production of David Bowie’s LAZARUS, conceiving of and creating 16 narratively-connected Bowie music videos.

An industrious screenwriter, Natasha has written more than 20 feature film and TV scripts for projects in Australia and the US, including adapting the Pulitzer-nominated novel SNOW CHILD for New York producers Amy Hobby and Anne Hubble (Tangerine Entertainment), and co-writing THE TWISTED for Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions. Her screenplay MIDDLE OF THE AIR was a winner of the UCLA Screenwriting Competition and her screenplay CLIVE was included on the US Hollywood Blacklist and was a semi finalist of the Nicholl Fellowship. Natasha wrote the feature film FELL, directed by Kasimir Burgess, which premiered In Competition at the Sydney Film Festival.
