Departing Screen Queensland CEO Tracey Viera is joining Hoodlum Entertainment as Chief Content Officer.
Brisbane and LA-based Hoodlum is producer of Harrow, Five Bedrooms, Tidelands, Secrets & Lies.
CEO Tracey Robertson said: “We couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Tracey, or TV as we will call her. We have worked with Tracey across the years at both Ausfilm and Screen Queensland, and we have watched as she has helped create global opportunities for Australian creatives. Our mission is to make locally relevant, internationally appealing stories all over the world, and to bring more international production to Australia. We know that Tracey will help us achieve that.’
Chief creative officer Nathan Mayfield said: “We want to work with the best creatives we can, whether they are writers, directors, heads of department or crews. To leverage the best creatives, we need the best business and relationship talent there is, and that pretty much sums up Tracey Vieira.”
Tracey Vieira added: “Having the opportunity to work in partnership with Deanne Weir, Tracey Robertson and Nathan Mayfield is a dream come true and I am thrilled to join them on the next step of the company’s evolution. The role brings together my 17-years of experience and relationships across North America and Australia in a team driven by a clear vision to make bold and distinctive content for Australia and the world.’
She begins on September 30.
