Neil McGregor graduated from Australian Film, Television & Radio School & Griffith University with high distinctions and acceptance into honours. While at University, his films were shortlisted for Tropfest Film Festival and opened the Brisbane International Film Festival. His directorial debut feature film The Little Things was financed by Screen Australia and Screen Queensland, and was highly successful at film festivals globally, securing distribution and Neil was inducted into the Australian Directors Guild. On the back of this success, he relocated to Vancouver, Canada where he was added to the directing roster for TV commercials in North America. While developing a slate of projects, he also worked in Locations and Assistant Director Departments where he informally shadowed several directors on various films including Godzilla, The Interview, Fifty Shades of Grey and secured a literary agent before relocating back to Australia.

Neil played an integral role in helping attract more than $335 million in production investment into Queensland and provided locations assistant on numerous productions including Aquaman, Thor: Ragnarok, Pacific Rim: Uprising, Godzilla Vs Kong, Kong Skull Island,

Due to the increased amount of film production activity in Queensland, Neil found a location at Hemmant, conceptualised a studio design and was part of a team that and oversaw the build process of what would become Screen Queensland Studios, Australia’s third largest studio complex. Paramount Pictures was the first production to use the studio and is a legacy for the future of the Australian film industry.
