SPAA’s new Council
Tree Australia’s Brian Rosen and Taylor Media’s Sue Taylor have been re-elected for a third term as president and vice-president of the Screen Producers Association of Australia for 2013/2014.
SPAA is changing its constitution to elect future presidents for a two-year term, capped at a maximum of two terms. Rosen has indicated he will step down as president at the end of his third year.
Members of the 2013/14 SPAA Council are: Donna Andrews, Sticky Pictures; Mark Bamford, TressCox Lawyers; Ben Grant, Goalpost Pictures; Chris Hilton, Essential Media and Entertainment; Morgan Jaffit, Defiant Development; Linda Klejus, Circa Media; Nathan Mayfield, Hoodlum Entertainment; Alaric McAusland, Deluxe Australia; David Redman, Instinct Entertainment; Andrew Ogilvie, Electric Pictures; Chris Oliver-Taylor, Matchbox Pictures; and Joanna Werner, Werner Film Productions.
The outgoing councillors are Dan Pearce, Holding Redlich Lawyers; Ros Tatarka, CreatEve; and Jennifer Wilson, The Project Factory.
Of that trio SPAA says, “Together they have amassed 10 years of service to members and the industry, have driven many important negotiations, and provided considerable strategic advice and direction to our ongoing work.”
