Having graduated from Muskingum College in the United States with a double degree in English and Speech/Drama and after 4 years of teaching, I moved to Singapore to take up the same subjects at the Singapore American School. In 1981 I met Australian Cinematographer Jon R. Noble ACS, who convinced me to try my hand at scriptwriting for his company Filmwest, the leading documentary film production company in South East Asia.
34 years and scores of productions later, Jon and I are still passionate about creating challenging and engaging screen content. Now based in the Northern Rivers, we are developing a series of stories on little-known Australians who have big stories to be told.
We are also presently launching FilmRescue, a project to find an affordable facility for independent Australian producers and cinematographers to transfer their treasured productions and raw footage (the out-takes are often the most valuable shots in the production) to high definition (or higher) digital format. There is footage all over this country going bad in unsuitable storage, or being thrown on the tip for lack of a means to preserve it, with the National Film and Sound Archive carrying a backlog of tens of thousands of productions awaiting transfer. We are in touch with some of the most innovative and cost-effective equipment manufacturers around the world seeking a solution to this problem. Anyone who would like to discuss this project with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
