Who we are
PASSIONATE COLLABORATIVE DYNAMIC
We’re a husband-and-wife team that has been working creatively together for 17 years. We have diverse backgrounds in writing and producing for film, TV, documentaries, advertising and events. This experience brings a multi-layered approach to our work as we understand big visionary ideas, budget constraints and also how much love and hard work goes into getting a project off the ground.
Collaborative communication is how we work, we feel it’s key to success.
After working in Melbourne in advertising and film, Holli teamed up with Jeremy to develop the novel, The Last Four Days of Paddy Buckley, which was published by Penguin, New York, in 2015. Capitalising on their diverse skills in creative industries, Holli and Jeremy started The Creative Producer in 2019.
Holli brings 20 years’ experience across narrative and execution, having produced content in China, India, Australia, UK and Ireland, and she has managed every type of film set. But her love is for developing novels, books, documentaries and film projects that deeply explore the human condition and shine a light on hidden truths.
Her latest documentary project, MILLION DOLLAR KIDS, is an exposé of the dangers facing young people as they navigate their way through the digital age, and an eye-opening enquiry into the exponential rise in online and image-based abuse. This is a philanthropic film, told and made by young people for young people.
Holli’s creative focus includes health & wellness, nutrition, psychology, stories that explore the human condition and current global issues.
