Nelson Woss

Nelson Woss first worked in the film industry at Village Roadshow in Los Angeles. At the same time, he worked with Academy Award-winning producer David Puttnam, and later for director Ivan Reitman's company, Northern Lights. In 2002, he developed and produced the Australian feature film NED KELLY for Universal Pictures, which was directed by Gregor Jordan and starred Heath Ledger, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and Naomi Watts. NED KELLY received two Australian Film Institute Awards.

In 2011, Woss produced RED DOG, directed by Kriv Stenders. RED DOG is the tenth-highest grossing Australian film of all time, and, 11 days after opening, it became the highest grossing Australian film of 2011. RED DOG won Best Film at the inaugural AACTA awards and the AFI Members Choice Award.

The RED DOG DVD is the highest-selling Australian DVD of all time. In December 2011, $1 from the sale of every copy sold in Coles was donated to the RSPCA. More than $17,000 was raised for the animal charity.

Currently, Woss is president of Endymion Films Inc. and its Australian counterpart Woss Group Film Productions, along with Good Dog Enterprises and Good Dog Distribution.

Woss has teamed up with director Kriv Stenders (RED DOGKILL ME THREE TIMES) and writer Dan Taplitz (RED DOG) to produce RED DOG: TRUE BLUE, a follow up to RED DOG. It is scheduled for Australia-wide cinema release on Boxing Day 2016.
