Angela loves films and storytelling because of its ability to take you to a world of imagination and wonder. She is intrigued by the world of film and fell into it almost by chance but like most things she learns really fast (with the help of amazing people of course). She is searching for films that will be become the next Breakfast Club or will break the boundaries of traditional filmmaking. In 2014, Angela attended the eight week screen producing course at Open Channel, The Dark Art with Stephen Luby and has also recently attended a one day course in Financially managing your production with MoneyPenny managing director Jane Corden.

Angela is a member of Screen Producers Australia and will be attending the Cannes Producers Workshop in May 2016 and the American Film Market in November 2016 to seek finance and co-producers on various film projects in development.

People ask for forgiveness from loved ones a er years without communication or reconcile and confess secrets that they’ve held onto for decades”
Growing up in Adelaide’s North East, Adam developed a passion for performing early on. Despite not having a drama pathway in school, Adam honed his craft through theatre and film projects before being accepted into the renowned Flinders University Drama Centre program in 2007.
Graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor of Creative Arts in Drama and Screenwriting, Adam moved to Melbourne where he has since appeared in several television series including the Doctor Blake Mysteries where he played the psychotic David Hoyle and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries as the troubled youth Yossi Stein.
Eager to create his own work, in 2013 Adam wrote, produced and starred in ‘Mixed Signals’; a short comedy about the often misread signs and signals of female flirtation.
Furthering his passion for storytelling, Adam has spent the last four years working on the feature script ‘Off Road’.
Inspired by survival tales such as 127 hours and Buried, the idea for Off Road came to him after being involved in a car accident as a teenager. The shock experienced in that incident became the genesis of the script. How would one react if someone they loved was hurt and more interestingly how would it affect their mental state if they were trapped at the scene of the accident with no help in sight?
“The choices we make in our lives, whether good or bad, are almost always made with the idea or assumption that we will grow old. But what if you knew when you were going to die? Would this affect the choices we make each day?
Adam is a current member of the Australian Writers Guild (AWG) and is represented by Michael Topple at Creative Representation.
