“I had the pleasure of working with the team at Goulburn Council while scouting and filming the Telstra TVC shown during the footy finals in 2023. Directed by Mark Molloy and produced by EXIT Films this cinematic ad required dramatic and interesting locations to represent quintessential rural Australia.
Ashleigh Basterfield and the rest of the team at council were incredibly helpful in ensuring the project went ahead as smoothly as possible and I look forward to filming again in Goulburn Council areas. Many thanks to all the local residents who were also very helpful throughout the preproduction and filming and the many local businesses that were open to filming.”

“In 2019 the Finch Company facilitated a large TV commercial for the NRMA. We had one of the world’s top directors from Argentina. It was a difficult job in relation to traffic management, lock downs and night shoots.
We used various locations in the Goulburn region from Painter’s Lane, Sydney Road, to Auburn Street and other locations in and around Goulburn. The director found Goulburn an exciting place to film in as it has a diverse landscape combined with great city locations that could pass as anywhere in Australia.
This commercial will be going to air in September 2020. For a job of this scale, good communication is essential. Goulburn Mulwaree Council, RMS and the police to made it all work. Jacki Weatherstone was my contact at Goulburn Mulwaree Council, and she was very helpful and had a hands-on approach which made things so much easier.
Filming in Goulburn is a delight and a pleasure, the locals were easy to deal with. I had no issues at all. I look forward to filming in Goulburn more often.”
