The ABC’s The Drum has published an opinion piece of mine:
I see very little merit in Government assistance to the film industry, apart from supporting the creation of genuine Australian content that helps tell the Australian story – i.e. movies like Picnic at Hanging Rock or Sunday Too Far Away. Movies like The Sea Hawk or Captain Nemo do not deserve assistance and money should be re-directed to more worthwhile purposes such as education and health. If job creation is the objective of such assistance, why not direct the money to schools, hospitals or cash-starved NGOs which I’m sure could use it to hire support staff?
