The Australian film industry’s export promo arm AusFilm has strengthened its L.A. office by tapping Megan Worthy deputy film commissioner. She will work with L.A.-based film commissioner David Pratt.

“I have lived and breathed the Australian film and TV industry for the past 10 years as well as having worked in the U.S. and in many other countries,” she said. “I know first-hand the advantages of shooting Down Under and how to present them to prospective productions.”
