Meet the team
David Tiley (Editor) David has written more than 50 documentaries (including the recent Lionel and Do Not Resuscitate, and was script editor for the controversial documentary Ten Conditions of Love) and the feature film (Noise - 2008) "nobody else wanted me for thirty years". Several (widely separated) stints writing for the CSIRO have given him an uncanny knowledge of agricultural pests, and a lifetime in the industry has given him a practical knowledge of the non-agricultural varieties. He believes that his career might have been hampered by an early decision to drop Peter Greenaway in an English bog, before exposing him to sub-zero temperatures in a very large wind-tunnel. For four years he was a project manager for the Australian Film Commission, before managing the ABC and SBS-Film Victoria Online Accord program.
Desperation eventually drove him from the bureacracy and back into filmmaking. His
passion for gossip and a sense of humour brought him to Screen Hub.
Keith Barclay (Editor, New Zealand) Based in Auckland, Keith is repsonsible for the New Zealand content of Screen Hub, as well of for bringing his art department / crew experience to the editorial mix. Keith worked in theatre in the UK, before moving to New Zealand and discovering these funny things called ?screens?. His credits include Shortland Street, Hercules and Xena: Warrior Princess, as well as ?an enormous number of TVCs ? they pay better? and live events. He spent the years 2001-2003 explaining to people that there were only so many Orcs available, and that they had to share them! He has lived and worked in many different countries, including Britain (born there), the U.S., most of Western Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, China, Japan, Indonesia, Australia and now New Zealand.
Breeze Prakit (Webmaster) Breeze has a Bachelor of Computing from La Trobe University, and is completing her Masters at RMIT. She is responsible for maintaining a website and looks after the technical support of Screen Hub.
Alex Prior (General Manager) Alex combines being management with acting as Screen Hub's financial journalist. He has the distressing habit of reading (and understanding) the accounts section of other people's annual reports. He co-founded Screen Hub in 2004, and has a particular liking for the word ?eclectic?, having worked as a playwright (14 commissioned works), production manager, freelance journalist, conference and festival organiser, theatre manager, artistic director and in half a dozen other occupations (often simultaneously). He can rig lights, operate heavy machinery, build sets, construct budgets, raise millions in sponsorship and government funding, run teams, execute marketing plans in all media - and inevitably and with joy, write. He defines "career" as moving rapidly with little control - the essential aim being to avoid smashing into something solid enough to cause damage.
The Regulars Many industry professsionals contribute their knowledge and skills to Screen Hub ? but none quite as regularly as this lot.
Dominic Case (post-production) Fellow of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and also of the British Kinematograph, Sound and Television Society (BKSTS), Dominic is a past Chair of SMPTE's Australian section, and an International Governor. He is also a former Commissioner of the Australian Film Commission. Dominic's credits range from What I Have Written (1993) to the restoration of The Sentimental Bloke (1919). He holds degrees in Physics and Mass Communications and is the author of two books on film and post-production methods. As Chair of FIBRE (Film Industry Broadband Resources Enterprise) he led an industry-wide group in developing business models for broadband access.
Tina Kaufman (feature film) A long time Australian film critic and journalist, Tina edited the late Film News and served on the board of the Sydney Film Festival for 25 years. ABC Radio once described her as ?one of the people who know where all the bodies are buried in the Australian film business.? She is quite happy to dig them up and have a chat for us. Her latest book on Wake in Fright has recently been published by Currency Press.
Mark Poole (documentary & education) Documentary director and writer Mark Poole (Fearless, India Rising, Birth of a Film Festival, among others), also has an intimate knowledge of tertiary education policy in the film and television sectors. He is a former board member of both the Australian Writers' Guild and the Australian Directors Guild.
