Michael Gracey Masterclass


AC Magazines

A limited number of ACS members will have an opportunity to attend a
Masterclass in Directing with Michael Gracey.

Michael Gracey is an acclaimed feature, commercial, music video and VFX director who grew up in Melbourne shooting and developing films from an early age. The visual wunderkind was then plucked from school to become the youngest ever animator at Sydney's Animal Logic.
His first music video won an ARIA Award and led to collaborations with the Black Eyed Peas, Jennifer Lopez, Elton John and Pink. He is also a celebrated commercials director, whose advertising work has received three Lions at the Cannes Advertising Festival and two Clio Awards, including a Gold for Best Direction.
Most recently, Gracey made his feature film debut with THE GREATEST SHOWMAN starring Hugh Jackman. The film went on to gross over $585m and quickly became the third highest-grossing live-action musical of all time. It also received three Golden Globe nominations, winning the Golden Globe for Best Original Song, and was nominated for an Oscar®.
Gracey's groundbreaking vision and ability to create innovative entertainment has made him a sought after filmmaker. He’s next set to direct NARUTO, the martial-arts action film based on the bestselling Japanese manga.

In a wide ranging discussion with Marc Fennell, Michael will discuss his career, his vision, his work ethic and creative process, and support it with an array of material on screen.
Marc Fennell is a radio and television presenter, interviewer and author of two books. He co-hosts SBS TV's current affairs programme The Feed, and also presents the media and tech series "Download This Show" for ABC Radio. Marc is best known to 3.1 million young Australians as "That Movie Guy" on Triple J.
