writers, filmmakers, coders, educators and clowns
Our Bizniss is renown for fostering long term, truly unique working relationships based on creativity, mutual respect, trust, and lots of fun and laughter.
Cathy Beitz is the director of ourBizniss. Early in her career Cathy was the executive producer/producer of Queensland’s first tele-movie, 'Madness of Two'. Moving to the United States in 1984, she spent 12 years producing and directing commercials, corporate videos and documentaries. Many of them won awards including the 1989 Gold Effie for the (statistically) most effective television commercial in America. She directed the award winning documentary, 'They Called Me Kathy', the story of Katharine Hepburn's childhood in Connecticut for the PBS network. She went on to make her mark merging investigative journalism into a corporate communication format with a series of films in association with The Harvard Business School. After returning to Australia, Cathy made several documentaries for television, including co-producing two one hour films for Channel 4 in the UK, producing a seven part series on Great Australian Train Journeys for the PBS Network in the US and two films for SBS.
The other integral part of the team is IT Expert and Producer, Graeme Kennelly. Sporting one of Australia's first computer science degrees, Graeme describes himself as generally useful - a game developer, community filmmaker, jam maker and artisan baker. He is probably better known as the visionary who set up the business model to roll out the internet to Australia and several other countries. He then went on to work in the satellite business out of Washington DC. When Graeme says, 'it's not rocket science', he actually knows what that is.
