This year the Australian Directors Guild will present the Michael Carson Award for Excellence in Television Drama Direction.
The Michael Carson Award recognises excellence in the craft of television drama direction and Chris Langman has been selected to receive the honour at the upcoming Australian Directors Guild Awards.
Chris Langman is one of Australia’s most respected and prolific directors. He has directed many of Australia’s most successful TV shows including Neighbours, Blue Heelers and The Flying Doctors.
“We are very pleased that we can present the Michael Carson Award for TV Drama Directing at a time when TV drama in Australia is of such a high quality” said Kingston Anderson, CEO of the Australian Directors Guild.
“Chris Langman is one of the industry’s veterans whose CV reads like a history of drama over the past 30 years."
In 2006 director Michael Carson was to receive an Award for Excellence at the annual ASDA Dinner. Sadly, he passed away prior to his award being presented, so the Award was renamed in his honour. The Award has previously been presented to Peter Andrikidis (2007), Kate Woods (2008), Ken Cameron (2009) and Tony Tilse (2010).
Ray Argall, the Chair of the ADG will present the award to Chris Langman at the ADG Awards Ceremony and Black Tie Dinner on Friday 8 May at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins. This year’s ADG Awards will be hosted by Chris Taylor and additional presenters will be revealed soon.
