With Andrew Mackie
Andrew Mackie is a film distributor and producer. His company Transmission Films released such indie hits as The King’s Speech and Lion. His executive producer credits include Ride Like A Girl, Tracks, Candy, Sweet Country, Six Minutes to Midnight and On Chesil Beach. In 2012 and 2013 The Australian named him one of the twenty-five most influential people in the Australian arts. Andrew has always been fascinated by all things royal and has long felt that the Queen’s tour of Australian in 1954 was ripe with dramatic potential. The Tour (published in the U.S as Journey After The Crown) takes that tour as a starting point for a dramatic story of family loyalties and competition.
