Paul Walton (AUS)

Paul Walton is the co-founder of 720creative, based in Melbourne, Australia.  

He started life in the UK as a child actor but soon realized just turning up wasn’t enough, you had to have acting talent too! With this in mind, Paul moved to the other side of the camera and found his true calling – seeing the potential in ideas and working with talent to bring their projects to life.

Paul is a passionate producer, loves creative people and ideas, and relishes the chance to challenge traditional creative parameters. He has a large list of credits that span over thirty years working in feature films, comedy, drama, documentary, light entertainment, live television and news.  Paul has a keen eye for discovering remarkable talent and ideas.  It is this journey of discovery which stimulates his desire to push boundaries and challenge the status quo in order to embrace the rapidly evolving and disruptive current creative boom.

Paul’s wider commitment to the industry goes beyond just making shows. Through his work at 720creative he also works with business partner Karla Burt as a coach and mentor for emerging creators, actors and producers in Australia and around the globe.
