Rachel Gardner

Producer Rachel Gardner studied at the London School of Economics, and worked as a journalist at the BBC. After returning down under in 2002 she moved into producing: her work on hit show The Lion Man would result in an invitation to spend time as head of drama at Great Southern Film and Television. Gardner has worked with partner Angela Littlejohn on a run of short films, plus features Apron Strings and Show of Hands.

...it’s all about the material. The script is the one thing you have the most control over as a producer, and which is most important in securing cast and finance.
