A veteran Australian film producer has joined NSW’s screen agency to work on attracting large productions to Sydney and NSW.
Breaker Morant-producer Matt Carroll joins Screen NSW as director of production attraction and incentives, as the agency boasts almost 80% of Screen Australia’s national film and television production investment. $528 of the total $623m was spent in NSW.
NSW Minister for Tourism, Major Events and the Arts, George Souris said in a press release: “Matt Carroll will be a solid addition to Screen NSW efforts to promote NSW as Australia’s undisputed film and television production hub and a home to cutting-edge innovation across all forms of the moving image.
“As an experienced producer, Matt Carroll knows exactly what a producer will be looking for when deciding where to base a production. He is well versed in the international production arena and knows the competitive advantages NSW offers as a production destination.”
Carroll said in a statement: “Having spent most of my film career using NSW locations and facilities I am keenly aware of the State’s attributes. I’m looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm with my Australian and international production colleagues.”
