Event Details

Queensland Film & TV Events shall be presenting at EAST BROADBEACH on the 8th September 2015, special guest Australian writer and producer Tony Cavanaugh, talking on his experiences over the last 40 years of being in the industry as a writer and producer. 

Tony Cavanaugh is a novelist, scriptwriter and producer in film and television. He has forty years of experience in the film industry, in all fields, from the genesis of an idea to production. Tony first started worked at Crawford Productions where he spent three years in the Camera Department before moving across into the writing department where he became a script editor, writer and story editor. His work as a writer and editor at Crawfords over the years was diverse: The Sullivans, Zoo Family, Carson’s Law, Cluedo, The Flying Doctor, Halfway Across the Galaxy and Turn Left and I Live With My Dad. After he left Crawfords, Tony became a freelance writer, story editor and script editor for all the major Australian production companies on a diverse range of television series. In 1991 Tony formed Liberty Films and created its’ first production drama, Fire, which was nominated for Most Outstanding Mini-Series and Most Popular Drama at the 1994 Logie Awards. Tony has since worked on acclaimed series such as Medivac, which was launched with strong ratings and became an audience hit in Germany, The Day of the Roses and Through My Eyes, which was short-listed for the Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards and nominated as Most Outstanding Mini-Series at the 2005 Logies. Tony has also produced films such as ‘In Her Skin (I Am You)’ and ‘Nine Miles Down’, and has worked with a number of Hollywood screenwriters and directors such as John McNaughton (Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer and Wild Things), John Carpenter (The Thing) and William Friedkin (The Exorcist). In 2012 Tony’s first novel, Promise, sold enough copies to earn him the description “best-selling author”, and were followed by his second and third novel, Dead Girl Sing and The Train Rider. He is currently working on his fifth book, Kingdom of the Strong, and developing a number of projects for both film and TV.

MC host for the evening will be local Gold Coast comedian, Dean Barker, who has been performing stand-up comedy part-time for around ten years. He finds pleasure in discovering the absurdities in the everyday things we as people do. Dean draws inspiration from such comedians as Steven Wright, Louis CK and Chris Begg.
