Lucy Gaffy: Industry Attachment

Mar 29 2016

Fantastic news today that AFTRS graduate Lucy Gaffy (2012) will be attached to feature film and TV drama director Mark Joffe on upcoming CJZ TV drama Bond, a biopic on controversial business tycoon Alan Bond which is currently in pre-production.

While at AFTRS Lucy completed a  Master of Screen Arts (2012) a Graduate Diploma in Directing and  a Graduate Certificate in Screenwriting (2009) and Directing (2008).

Lucy's AFTRS student film The Love Song of Iskra Prufrock  picked up multiple awards on the international film festival circuit as well as audience awards at the Beverly Hills Film Festival, the Angelus Awards Student Film Festival and a Jury Award at the Newport beach film Festival in the US.
The Love Song of Iskra Prufrock
was also nominated for an AFI for Best Short Fiction Film.

This is the first of three TV drama directors’ attachments that the ADG have rolled out so far this year and Lucy joins fellow AFTRS directing graduates such as Miranda Nation and Stephen McCallum who have picked up attachments with accomplished industry practitioners.

Bond producer Paul Bennett said, “This will be a great opportunity for any young director to witness a big production from the ground up and to follow Mark Joffe through the rigors of directing a biopic of one of Australia’s most controversial figures.”

Lucy said of the opportunity, "I am so excited about this wonderful opportunity to work with a filmmaker like Mark Joffe - a storyteller whom I have so long admired - and deeply grateful to .. the marvellous team at the ADG for their continued support of emerging directors."

Congratulations Lucy.
