Travels From:
Sydney

Fee Range: E


Having directed over 35 feature films, Bruce has hands on experience in managing the most difficult of movie stars, leading ladies, producers, executive producers, line producers, studio heads, corporate investors, banks etc and this translates effectively to the business environment.

His greatest achievement was the internationally acclaimed Breaker Morant (1979, which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay), a splendid drama built around a true incident during the Boer War. Its worldwide success brought Beresford offers from Hollywood, where he chose to make the intimate drama Tender Mercies (1983), for which he was Oscar-nominated.

OTHER FILMS INCLUDE: 1972: The Adventures of Barry McKenzie 1975: Side by Side 1976: Don's Party 1978: Money Movers 1981: Puberty Blues 1986: The Fringe Dwellers (also wrote and produced); Crimes of the Heart 1987: Aria (wrote and directed "Die Tote Stadt"); 1993: Rich in Love 1994: A Good Man in Africa

Bruce's style of speaking is delivered in a witty, relaxed and anecdotal fashion.
