Producer Andrena Finlay kicks off consultancy push with two workshops

27 September, 2016 by Harry Windsor

Independent producer Andrena Finlay runs Wildheart Films with her husband, producer Al Clark (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert). 

They are currently in pre-production with Jamie Hilton's See Pictures on Stephan Elliott's Flammable Children, starring Guy Pearce, Radha Mitchell and Kylie Minogue.


Finlay most recently produced Mark Lamprell's Goddess in 2013. 

Separate to her day job as a producer, she's now starting a new consultancy business called Screen Arts. Business. Consulting (Screen ABC). 

Finlay is kicking things off with two producing workshops – October 15 and October 29 – aimed at demystifying the process of financing feature films.

The workshops will cover creating finance plans, recoupment waterfalls, understanding investors (Workshop 1 – Oct 15), and how to navigate through the myriad of transaction documents required before a producer can even get cashflow (Workshop 2 – Oct 29). 

The first workshop will zero in on two case studies: a $2.5 million Screen Australia traditionally-financed production and a low budget feature, financed independently in two stages (production and completion).

Cost: $300 + GST for one OR $500 + GST for both workshops

Address: 66-70 Oxford St, Darlinghurst

Hours: 10am–4pm.

RSVP: 8 places only. Confirm by Friday October 7 to
