Episode 6 - Glendyn Ivin

The Good Thief show

Summary: Glendyn Ivin is a multi international award winning director of Film, TV and Commercials. With credits in Television rolling out to include the likes of mass award nominees and winners; Beaconsfield, Puberty Blues, Gallipoli, The Beautiful Lie, Seven Types of Ambiguity, Safe Harbour and more recently The Cry for BBC1, critics love to love this man. Glendyn’s first feature The Last Ride, starring Hugo Weaving, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and won him Best New Narrative Director at The Abu Dhabi Film Festival and the Jury Prize at the Rome International Film Festival. Cracker Bag, his short film, got him the world’s attention - winning the Palme d’Or in 2003 at the Cannes Film Festival. Glendyn is a director worth noting and worth watching, but his character and sensitivity is something worth appreciating. Every thing Glendyn touches sizzles with tone and detail that moves audiences and leaves them wanting more. I sat down with the man to talk about his process, how he got his eye and where it all came from - I hope you enjoy, there’s a lot more to unpack.
