Graeme Mason does not mince words in public. So his general response to the COVID-19 pandemic means something. ‘I cannot believe the ability of the sector to work together for everybody’s best interest, and the ability to adapt and to just be resilient. It’s just extraordinary,’ he said in an interview.
‘We and AFTRS and the Federal government helped co-ordinate a task force, and got all the agencies and the guilds and big production companies and networks all working together, to ensure that people are safe, come up with guidelines and get people back to work. And I think that was very impressive, watching people collaborate and share.’
