When did you get your start in the film industry?
Danny Dawson: When I finished studying Business Administration at the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) in 1994 my first job was working for Ronin Films as a distribution assistant. So I’ve been in the audiovisual-film industry for over 20 years.
That was an exciting time for Australian films.
Absolutely. At the time Ronin was distributing Strictly Ballroom (1992) and it was going spectacularly well. I was employed at its peak to keep up with the demand of sending publicity materials, trailers and film prints to cinemas. It was a huge task and one that kept us very busy for over a year!
