 Naomi is widely regarded as the captain of the LMI ship. She is called upon to conceive of new concepts, analyse projects and scripts (to understand the feasibility of a project within a budget), create working budgets, liaise with government departments, establish financing plans, contract personnel and manage productions from development through to delivery.

Naomi’s role as Producer and Production Manager at LMI is to leverage her extensive expertise in commercial film production to develop and produce content for distribution online, in theatres (cinemas) and through broadcasters.

After completing a Bachelor in Arts Management from the prestigious West Australian Academy of Performing Arts Naomi has gone on to an extremely successful 20 Year career in film and television production.

She has an extensive and detailed understanding of the production process and is often called upon to mentor and guide younger people through the process of “getting a story up.”

Starting her career early in her working life she quickly found herself taking on responsibilities in Production and soon rose to Production Manager on several successful productions in film and television.

In her time as Production manager she has worked for major United States production companies such as Paramount Pictures and Fox Studios and gained much experience in international co-production funding arrangements.

Later in her career she has risen to Producer and Line Producer on films such as “Hawke” (awarded AFI Best Telemovie 2010) for major local television networks. She has also been a Producer on smash hit movies like Oddball (2015).

Apart from project budget assessment work that she carries out from time to time with the Australian Government funding bodies she has recently been working on international projects with production companies such as Fremantle Media and ITV Granada.

Recently Naomi (through the LMI banner) has enjoyed a role as Producer on an AUD $22 million official Chinese-Australian Co-Production - “The Longest Shot”, to be released in 2018 throughout China and other territories. This required Naomi to work closely with a large Chinese production company, managing the day-to-day running of the production. As part of her role she was required to manage the Australian portion of the production including staffing, contracting, licensing, managing the relationship between Screen Australia, Film Victoria, the production company and the Chinese Government. As a direct result of her experience on that production she was an invited as a special guest of the International Chinese Film Festival and Awards Ceremony in Brisbane (2017) and was a special guest speaker at the official Chinese Australian Co-Production Forum and Conference in Wuhan China in 2017.

Naomi is currently working as an integral part of the producing team on an Australian feature film “Ride Like a Girl” (The Michelle Payne Story). Being directed by renowned Australian actor Rachel Griffiths.

Although Naomi has concentrated her efforts in drama production she has also worked as a Producer in commercial advertising, on music video clips - working with people such as Natasha Pincus (Director – “Somebody that I used to know” – Gotye. With 1,016,583,692 views) and as a Production Manager on international events such as the Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

An exciting upcoming feature length documentary on the dating of the Kimberley Rock Art.

“Stories in Stone” is a film about the scientific dating project of what could prove to be the oldest rock art sites on the globe. Tests are currently being undertaken to preserve and to discover the age of the art. But it is more than that - this film will be about the people who hold the knowledge of the rock art and its deeper spiritual meanings, its record of human beings and their observations and movement across the changing northern landscapes. The changing lore & law, of social upheavals in the early tribes, of reverence for nature and its importance to a balanced relationship based on reciprocity from human to nature and back again
