  about             

     paul         

Fortunately Paul Drane’s directing ability eclipses his counting capacity - after all he still insists he’s only 23. Clearly he is young at heart however, directing live music programs today with the same enthusiasm, instinct and passion that saw “Countdown” become a landmark in Australian music and television culture.

 

His music videos for “Countdown” and as an independent producer/director are renowned for pushing  the boundaries. “It’s a Long Way to the Top” and “Jailbreak” remain among AC/DC’s most popular clips decades later. Other classics include films for Cold Chisel, Little River Band, John Paul Young and Skyhooks, to name just a few.

 

Adding further to popular culture is “The Prophecies of Nostradamus”, which aired in Australia in 1979. Picked up by Warner Brothers for cinema release, this became “The Man Who Saw Tomorrow”, hosted by Orson Welles.  Still today the film remains a cult classic, particularly in America, where it periodically races up the video charts, most notably after September 11, 2001.

 

Interspersed are stage productions, arena tours, commercials and corporate productions, a successful post-production facility, and of course much more music.

 

Right now SBS TV’s “Rockwiz” is keeping Paul busy, including music productions such as the ARIA-nominated Paul Kelly “Stolen Apples” DVD. There’s also special events like live awards nights and comedy galas as well as the “Green Matters” environmental series, airing all around the world.

 

Not bad for a 23 year old.
