Rose Byrne to head up new all female production company
Rose Byrne accepts the AACTA Trailblazer Award earlier this year.
AACTA winner and Golden Globe nominee Rose Byrne will lead a new Australian all-female production company.
Titled The Dollhouse Collective; Byrne is joined by other Australians actress/filmmaker Gracie Otto, actress /writer Krew Boylan, director Shannon Murphy and publicist/ producer Jessica Carrera.
The five women, who are firm friends, champion change in the industry for a greater representation of females.
"The idea has been germinating for a while. We are close friends and we have worked together, so it’s been a natural progression. We realised we are a group of creatives and saw the opportunity to achieve more together than as individuals”, the Collective said in a statement released to media.
The Dollhouse Collective has a number of projects in development and their current slate includes Seriously Red written by Boylan, produced by Matt Reeder, with Bryne executive producing Girls in Hotels helmed by Otto with Carrera producing and the short feature When All the Water, helmed by Murphy, screenplay by Marisa Nather.
