Project: Trail Towns
Development to Execution
In 2019 I was approached at the conception/early development stage by the client to come on board as Executive Producer/Director. The basic concept was a cycle tourism show that visited different regions and towns throughout Australia. Not long afterward the globe was overtaken by the coronavirus. I began by putting a team together from the client’s own staff and started to teach and guide them on how to develop and produce a TV show. Working remotely from Amsterdam for much of the contract I traveled to Australia to Direct the 6 episodes of Season 1.
I was responsible for overseeing the distribution, budgeting, and production of Trail Towns. Secured funding for seasons 1 & 2, managed the entire team from pre-production through to completion. To ensure a high quality I also directed all of season 1. Negotiated distribution both domestically (Australia) and internationally for seasons 1-3.
With over 500,000 views, you can watch all of Season 1 on SBS Australia https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/program/trail-towns
