Two of Australia’s most successful producers have been revealed as speakers at next month’s SPAA Conference in Sydney.
Emile Sherman, Oscar winning producer of The King’s Speech, and Nelson Woss, producer of current local box office hit Red Dog will both speak at the Screen Producers Association of Australia event which takes place from November 13 to 16.
Sherman and Woss will take place in an “on the couch” session at the conference.
As well as The King’s Speech, Sherman’s credits have included Disgrace, Candy and Rabbit Proof Fence. He co-founded See-Saw Films in 2008 which in turn created film finance company Fulcrum Media Finance. A Sherman is also a director of Australasian distribution company Transmission Films.
Red Dog has now moved into the top ten local films at the Australian box office. Woss was also behind the film Ned Kelly.
