UK v Aus Feature Film Industry Comparison

Feverpitch enjoyed a visit to AFTRS for the weekly Friday on My Mind talk, this week with Neil Peplow – see info below
In Australia, it is oft commented that we don’t have the audience size, the budget, the scale, compared to England.
Neil presented the graph above comparing the industry in 2010. You could hear the audience gasp at how in many criteria, Australia is far better placed to foster feature film development.

A Call to Producers: Adapt or Die
Shooting Fish and Waking Ned producer Neil Peplow will provide an international perspective on the current play of feature film financing and will explore the myriad of challenges facing local producers and filmmakers.

A former chairman of the New Producers Alliance in the UK, Peplow has acted as producer, co-producer, Head of Production and Executive Producer on 16 features and most recently the Showtime TV series LA LA Land. Prior to relocating to Australia, to take up the position as Director of Screen Content Division at AFTRS, Peplow was responsible for the UK Film Council‘s new three-year strategy for film: ‘A Bigger Future 2‘.

Neil firmly believes it is more crucial than ever for filmmakers to adapt to a shifting financial landscape, new models for distribution and changing approaches to content creation. He will share with us his experience of working as a producer and executive producer in the UK during a significant time of change.

This session is a must for executive producers and producers.
