FRIDAY 26 April 2013 @ 5.00PM – MELBOURNE, Friday on My Mind is a FREE weekly 1-hour interview series hosted by Sandra Sdraulig AM (former CEO of Film Victoria, Director of MIFF) held every Friday @ 5.00pm with the best directors, writers, producers, actors and industry professionals.
FRIDAY APRIL 26 – Jeffrey Walker: Rake-ing in the SuccessJeffrey Walker (Angry Boys, Rake, Jack Irish: Bad Debts, Jack Irish: Black Tide) is becoming one of the most sought after TV directors in Australia and following a stint in the US (Bones), that’s a reputation that is starting to gain traction overseas as well. Starting out in the industry as an award winning child actor Jeffrey has for the past decade focused on directing. His impressive directorial style, evident on projects such as the Jack Irish telemovies, unsurprisingly earned him an AACTA Award for Best Direction earlier this year.
Jeffrey will discuss his recent experience of working in the US and the similarities and differences between the two industries; the transition from acting to directing and from directing television to film. Hopefully he will also let us in on how on earth at the age of just 30 he has already directed over 85 hours of broadcast television!
