As an actor he has appeared on stage, TV, and film — including recurring guest roles on “Packed to the Rafters”, “Wild Boys”, and “All Saints”.

Tony is also an award-winning director–producer (of more than 35 shorts and numerous corporates), a professional screenwriter (with three feature films in development), and the Medical Coordinator of MACA. LinkedIn

 

SIDAT de SILVA
[Graphic Designer & Copywriter]

Sid could never have been very far from NAFA. Ever since sharing the stage with Tony in a 2001 production of Peter Weiss’s Marat/Sade, he has been watching NAFA grow. Sid programmed and co-directed our short film festivals over their final five years.

Sid is a freelance cinematographer and you’ve probably seen something he’s shot, somewhere. NAFA is an outlet for his designs on all things graphic, as well as an opportunity to contribute to the local community. LinkedIn

 

JOHN HALY
[Secretary]

Having danced and performed on stages around Sydney, John finally limped off the stage to start a film and post production business called Halyucinations Studios, to promote Visual Artists with Visual Media. He then began creating films and showreels for artists and performers.

John joined NAFA in 2003 and found himself managing NAFA’s original Web site until 2005 when he began studying for a Multimedia Diploma from Computer Graphics College (CGC). After attaining this Diploma in 2007, Tony Chu asked him to join the CPT as Secretary. LinkedIn
