Morrison (pictured) has over 20 years of experience in the international production industry, working for local producers and as a media advisor for the Australian government agencies Screen NSW and Screenwest, but will now lead a Perth office for Komixx.
The kids TV firm hopes to capitalise on the growing Australian SVOD market and the increasing demand for content in the Asia Pacific region. The office will focus on producing local non-scripted, scripted, and digital content.
Andrew Cole-Bulgin, joint CEO and head of film and TV at Komixx said: “The Australian office serves as a natural progression to our global content strategy and we’re thrilled to be making our mark in the APAC region.
“Our growth here is a response to the demand for new and exciting content in Asia and Amanda is the perfect person to lead this charge. Her unique international perspective within both the traditional and new media content production markets, ensures we’ll have some exciting content emerging from the Perth office very soon.”
Morrison said: “As producers of high quality content, I have wanted to collaborate with the Komixx team for a long time as they truly understand the substantial disruption the global film and TV industry is facing by digital technologies and business models. We all agree it is critical to harness the significant opportunity that the digital revolution, mobile and video proliferation represents.”
Morrison’s work includes founding RKPIX, a subsidiary company of Robyn Kershaw Productions (Bondi Banquet, Effie: Just Quietly), and is chair of the board of directors for the Centre For Interdisciplinary Arts and PVI collective, based in Western Australia.
She also established Transmedia For Change, which is an independent documentary and kids prodco. She has produced independent content for international broadcasters and distributors such as Channel 5 and NTL (now Virgin Media).
Cole-Bulgin and Edward Glauser founded Komixx in 2007. Some of its most recent credits are Netflix-commissioned The Kissing Booth and Toby’s Travelling Circus, commissioned for a second season by Channel 5.
