Altazaire Films

About Us

We write films you'll want to make.

Altazaire Films. Engaging stories, professional scriptwriting.

 

Yes we've always been able to tell a story (or as our mum said when we were kids - telling whoppers).  Throughout our together and separate careers there has always been the story-telling thread keeping us connected. Then when Anton wrote his Melbourne-Lockdown script, it opened the doors to a whole new writing collaboration for us both.

Felicity is a multi-award winning screen writer. Drawing on her Australian childhood, Felicity grew a young passion for writing into a career, via a journalism degree, and by joining Anton at the start-up street-press Forte Magazine.

Years following her time with Forte were spent further honing her skills now perfectly culminating in her crafting of unique and engaging stories for screen.  Felicity and Anton started Altazaire Films P/L in 2022 when they began collaborating on their scripts Spun Out! and Dreamcatchers.

Felicity's feature script HELLO CELLO is a story that brings together her love for the city of Melbourne and of classical music, it highlights too the value she places on family. Hello Cello has been well recognised in competitions; winning and placing in feature categories around the world, most recently longlisted in the prestigious Australian Writers Guild Monte Miller Awards 2023. Importantly our sister called Hello Cello "a delightful. story" which, you know, means a lot..

Anton and Felicity created Forte Magazine in the early 90s, it has gone on to become Australia's longest running regional music and entertainment street magazine. Into its 32 year fortemag.com.au continues to provide popular culture commentary and a steppingstone for writers seeking a career in the industry.

 

Anton has also been very successful in a different form of writing, using coding and programming to design, development and deliver his software products MediaTrack and SiteTrak – both products now used and valued by customers around the world. Anton more recently re-engaged in creative writing, focusing on screenplays. While Anton’s first awarded script was CLAWS written when he was 14, it wasn’t until the Covid lockdowns that he gave himself time to get down a few more of the stories that had been calling to him.

 

Anton emerged post-covid with a new and intriguing feature script Wish which secured immediate selection at each of the festivals entered in Nice, Jaipur and Rome, and winning at Oasis IFF 2022. This was followed by collaborations with Felicity on Spun Out! and Dreamcatchers, as well as his own scripts The Road Ahead, Screened of the Damned and another currently in development call Ikarius.
