introduction By the author
Autobiography by Anthony Buckley
As the editor of the classic films Wake in Fright, Age of Consent and Nureyev's DonQuixote, and producer of such masterly films as Caddie, Bliss, Oyster Farmer, The Night The Prowler and The Killing of Angel Street, as well as television series that include Poor Man's Orange, Celluloid Heroes and Man on the Rim, TonyBuckley is well placed to take us behind the scenes to observe through his eyes the fascinating growth of Australian film making.
Covering a vast period of our modern history he introduces us to the characters he has met: actors, stars, producers, technicians – sharing his entertaining stories and insights.
Awarded a multitude of prizes and awards in recognition of his achievements. Tony takes us with him on his personal journey from a child who falls in love with the cinema to Cannes and the multi-million dollar movie industry. From his earliest recollections, film has run through Tony's blood and he continues to be passionate about Australia's rich filmic history.
Tony Buckley has devoted his life to the realisation of Australian stories
on screen, and has witnessed first hand, the film industry's peaks
and troughs. He speaks to Peter Galvin about committing his memories
to the public record in his new book, Behind a Velvet Light Trap: A
Filmmaker's Journey From Cinesound to Cannes. PDF
Anthony Buckley has the measured charm of a man who has done it
all – cinematically speaking, anyway. And now he’s telling
it all, too, in a peppery, amusing and informative memoir, Behind A
Velvet Light Trap, which is filled with detail and anecdotes. Like
the time he slept in Rudolf Nureyev’s four poster in London’s
East Sheen. That’ll probably be the most-thumbed chapter (No
16), Buckley tells Andrew L. Urban. PDF
