Hoges: The Paul Hogan Story

Television Mini-Series

The story of Paul Hogan is that of an almost accidental supernova of raw comedic talent exploding onto the entertainment scene of first Australia and then the world, of how a married-at-eighteen Sydney Harbour Bridge rigger with five kids entered a TV talent contest on a dare from his work-mates to become a household name and an Oscar-nominated superstar.

Embraced by all Australians and soon know simply as “Hoges”. he is joined on his meteoric journey by lifelong friend, producer and sidekick John “Strop” Cornell. Together they make Australians first laugh then proud as one of the most successful tourism campaigns in history sells Aussie hospitality to the world. This, with the runaway success of Crocodile Dundee, the highest US-grossing foreign film ever in its day, cements Hogan’s legacy.

HOGES explores the factors which shaped this success – and at what cost success might have come. It entwines the story of his amazing journey with that of his close family life, of his two great loves, the pain of divorce, his struggle with the intense scrutiny of life in the public eye, but also of his enduring friendship with Cornell, and the rollercoaster of their careers.

The Eye of the Storm

In the Sydney suburb of Centennial Park, two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter as her expatriate son and daughter convene at her deathbed. But in dying, as in living, Mrs Hunter remains a powerful force on those who surround her.

Based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner Patrick White, THE EYE OF THE STORM is a savage exploration of family relationships – and the sharp undercurrents of love and hate, comedy and tragedy, which define them.

Jon designed the flashback sequence set in the early i960’s at the Hunters’ island holiday home, and the ensuing cyclone devastation.

Adele

Short Film

In the face of an African family tradition imposed on her in Australia, fourteen-year-old Adele is torn between high school and the home where she is a wife in an arranged marriage, and a mother-to-be.

Adele is a courageously told tale about the taboo subject of child marriage in Australia within the African community, winning multiple awards internationally.

Mad Max

Feature Film
An apocalyptic vision set in the wastelands of Australia. This iconic film set a new tone for Australian cinema, spawning a worldwide cult following and launching the careers of much of its cast and crew. Filmed in and around a virtually unrecognisable Melbourne, the production and design values remain a hot topic amongst cinephiles and academia alike.
