Staff

Stephen Hall, Executive Producer

Born in 1956. After graduating from Tokyo University of Foreign Studies in 1983, he returned to Australia to work in travel for a year and a half. In 1985 he started freelancing as an interpreter for various Japanese TVC, Television and stills projects. In 1987, he established his own line production company which until 2007 produced
approximately 400 TVCs. In 2007 Stephen left his Japanese business to concentrate on Carnival Films, the tabletop production company he started in 2004. With that running smoothly, in 2009, he joined forces with Tony Fry and established Spinnaker Films.

Maurice (Mo) Kerr, Line Producer

Born in 1959. In the early 80’s Mo lived in Thailand to help a family owned business. On the way back from Thailand he stopped off in Japan and ended up staying 2 years. During that time he worked in a wide range of jobs including working frequently as a model and an actor. He returned to Australia and worked for the line production company which Stephen had established.

He covered New Zealand and Australia for 12 years and had a loyal following in Japan. In 1999, he established Mo Films in New Zealand.

In 2003, Mo returned to Australia where he now creates hand-crafted timber furniture as well as working as line producer for Spinnaker Films.

Tony Fry, Producer

Born in 1983. Since he was small Tony has been fortunate enough to travel extensively and has visited more than 15 countries.

During his university days, he worked as an assistant for the Sky Typing campaign, which in turn led him to work in advertising.
After graduating from University, Tony moved to Oceania.

Despite his young age, he has amassed a wealth of experience, including sailing to Vanuatu, where he worked as a coordinator and translator for a Japanese TV show. After that Tony worked in Sydney for 3 years for an Australian TVC Production Company. In 2009, Tony joined Spinnaker
Films.

Yoshiko Maezima, Financial controller

After resigning from Tokyo Kaijyo Insurance Co., Yoshiko moved to Australia.

She worked in the accounts department at Marubeni Australia and then worked for Jalpak Oceania headquarters as an accounting manger for 10 years. She was responsible for all accounting for the company throughout its branches in Australia and New Zealand.

In 2001, she joined Stephen as his financial controller and continues to look after the accounts for both Carnival Films and Spinnaker.
