With 800 members, the ADG is the largest union representing screen directors in Australia. Kingston Anderson discusses the guild’s approach to gender balance and diversity in the industry, plus the nuts and bolts elements of being a director, including how royalties are collected and the impact of short-run TV series.

Anderson delves into how Australian directors are proving attractive to international production companies, and why the flow of talent overseas is actually helping the Australian industry. He also discusses why TV matters more than film in terms of jobs, and the ADG’s belief that Australian content quotas should apply to streaming services like Netflix.
