Kate Marks is a relative newbie to Los Angeles but I never would have guessed it. She has become a part of the community by taking on her role as the Executive VP of International Production for AUSFILM wholeheartedly. A role that includes enticing the international filmmakers to make use of our locations, incentives, facilities and talent. She tells us about Ausfilm’s involvement in the two tentpoles to be shot in Australia in 2016 (Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok and Ridley Scott’s latest Alien: Convenant - WOOT!) the ways in which Ausflim can help LA based Aussie writers, directors and producers and what they are doing to build relationships with China. We compare the differing financing systems and chat about the need for co-cporductions to happen organically. But ultimately it’s about business going back to Australia. Now that’s something I can completely get behind!
