About the Event

ANNE GORDON Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Anne got her start in post-production straight out of film school. While working her way up the ladder to editor, she discovered her love of the industry’s collaborative environment, and the way that it allowed her to bring something to life out of thin air. That eventually led Anne to London, where she worked producing and editing documentaries and shooting through Europe and the US. She then moved to the agency side as a freelance producer at Saatchi and Ted Bates, before returning to Australia to produce for TBWA\Chiat\ Day and J.Walter Thompson. Finally, Anne’s global career landed her in New York City, where she worked as a producer at Dennis Hayes & Associates—a post-production company revolutionizing the industry with campaigns for brands like Citibank, IBM, and Mercedes. Anne eventually took a break from the industry and returned to Australia to raise a family, while also dabbling in marketing for SMEs in the region and managing TEDx shows. Her latest feature documentary “The Surge at Mount Sinai” was produced during the pandemic last year and released on Discovery+ this July. The film takes a behind the scenes look at the devastating effects of the pandemic on the patients and staff at Mount Sinai, one of New York’s leading hospital networks. She continues to work remotely for Hooligan and is also looking for new projects championing local Australian stories and talent. PAUL NEVISON Australia-based, Kiwi Director Paul Nevison has over 20 years of experience in film and documentaries. His work mixes real-life events with cinematic elements to create evocative retellings of true stories, often giving voice to marginalised and disadvantaged groups. Filmmaking has taken Paul to over 40 countries where his humanistic and intuitive style amplifies the emotional connection between audience and film participants - intimate cinematic portraits uncover personal and universal truths. Paul’s work has garnered international recognition, with two Golds and one Silver at the YDAs in Cannes 2020, YDA Gold in 2019, winner of best direction at Ciclope Africa 2019 and nominated for best direction at Kinsale Sharks, 1.4 Awards and GZDOC. 2021 will see the release of his first feature documentary Evil Good, which chronicles the story of Phoenix Police officer, Victor Escoto as he battles against his own family in the Mexican drug cartels. MAGS SCHOLES Former Wildbear Entertainment senior production manager Mags Scholes started her career as a researcher at the BBC in the early 1990s. Her career has included stints in production management at ABC, NITV and SBS. She was responsible for overseeing Screen Queensland-supported productions such as Demolition Down Under for Network 10, as well as feature documentaries Brock Over the Top, directed by Kriv Stenders, and Hating Peter Tatchell, which was executive produced by Elton John. In 2017, she relocated to Singapore as head of production for UK factual outfit Make Waves, headed by BAFTA-winning director Sarah Macdonald and previous CEO of BBC World News Sian Kevill. She is currently engaged as the head of content at Screen Queensland. The evening will kick-off at 6pm. Mingle with like-minded creative folks in the local Screen industry over complimentary gourmet pizza, wine and craft beer.
