Go be­yond the Hol­ly­wood Cur­tain with the rev­o­lu­tion­ary team from XM2, the Stephen Oh-led pi­o­neers of drone tech­nol­ogy in film. The XM2 team have earned their rep­u­ta­tion on block­busters in­clud­ing Pi­rates of the Caribbean 5, Thor, Lion, West­world and Aqua­man and take you for a sneak peak be­hind the scenes to show you what hap­pens on a ma­jor pro­duc­tion set and how to get es­tab­lished in the in­dus­try. In the 1990s New York screen­writer/pro­ducer Jim Gor­man pro­duced block­busters Les Mis­er­ables and Sniper and sealed two of the big­gest deals in Hol­ly­wood his­tory with the record-set­ting sale of his scripts Cut­throat Is­land and Texas Lead & Gold for a com­bined $3 mil­lion. Here Jim ex­plains what you need to do to stand out from the crowd and get your movie made. Gain in­sights into the cre­ative process in­volved in mak­ing mu­sic videos from Jon Coghill, drum­mer for APRA award-win­ning Pow­derfin­ger, one of Aus­tralia’s great­est rock bands of all time. Now work­ing as a pre­sen­ter for ABC Sun­shine Coast, Jon can pro­vide you valu­able in­sights into work­ing as a mu­si­cian, mak­ing mu­sic videos and other me­dia suc­cess sto­ries.
