Geoff has recently completed the first season of “Tales of Aluna” a 26 x quarter hr
animated series for Network Seven (Australia’s largest broadcaster) based on a concept
and songs of the legendary 70’s singer songwriter Donovan. Currently, Geoff is
producing several mini ep based kids series for a new, about to be launched, media
platform in conjunction with Creata Entertainment, as well as a reboot of the hit UK
video board game “Atmosfear”.

Previously, Geoff was General Manager, then Managing Director of Flying Bark
Productions (formerly Yoram Gross EMTV) for 8 years. Geoff was also the founder and
Managing Director of Forest Interactive, a creative multimedia production company, now
wholly owned by Studio 100 (Belgium/Germany).

He is also a founder and CEO of Trackdown Digital, a multi-layered entertainment
focussed service and production company that provides full audio, video and related
production services for film, TV, the Arts community, multimedia and music recording, a
position Geoff has held for over 30 years. Geoff has helped take Trackdown from a
basement based 4-track recording studio to one of the World’s finest film audio and
music production facilities with the largest purpose built orchestral stages in the Southern
Hemisphere and over 20 multi-purpose production rooms.

With over 25 years association with many levels of the Entertainment Industry, Geoff has
had dealings with creators, artists, broadcasters, distributors and licensees worldwide on a
regular basis, as well as with international co-production partners. Starting out as a band
manager, looking after acts from The Robertson Brothers (signed to BMG) and The
Saints (signed to Mushroom), Geoff has had extensive experience with music copyright
and music business. In addition he has overseen the transformation of Yoram Gross-
EM.TV from being a traditional animation studio to a multi-format production company;
this included the production of over 200 hours of animation, children’s feature films and
live action television as well as related web sites, music publishing and merchandising
over the 10 years he worked for YGEM.
Most recently Geoff has been appointed as VP of Development and A&R for Peermusic
Australia where his brief is to build the local roster and explore innovative ways of
expanding the global footprint of peermusic.
