Contact: Jane Gordon
I am a teacher/actor/writer. My teaching career has taken me from working as a teacher, Principal and Head of School in tiny to large schools throughout Australia, UK and Kenya.
My acting work has been diverse including performances in (Harold Pinter’s ‘Old Times,’ performing in country NSW and the Bondi Pavilion, Sydney), the TV Series (Snobs) the doco/tele-movie about Natalie Wood and as an extra in the film (The Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels) filmed on the Cote d’Azur in the 80’s starring Michael Caine. I have also written, directed and staged productions for youth and adults for most of my career.
I have now written three feature films. ‘She’s a Fat Tart Ain’t She,’ based on the life of the Australian vaudeville jazz singer Pat Thompson; ‘Collision,’ a film about a bunch of street kids in a rural setting and ‘The Elephant Whisperer,’ a film based on the life of Lawrence Anthony for the South African Production Co. Giant Films.
Film credits include (Potoroo Blues) a short film created with marginalised youth juxtaposing their social exclusion with the near extinction of the Australian native mammal the Long-Nose Potoroo as writer/director.
I am also in the process of publishing my first children’s picture book and turning my travel blogs into a novel.
