Director Biography - Tony McGrath

Born and raised in Ipswich, Queensland, Tony graduated from Griffith Film School and QUT Drama before beginning a career making dozens of music videos for some of Australia's best bands.

His work demanded attention and after two years working at MTV Australia, Tony returned to Qld in ’97 and joined Cutting Edge Post. He quickly became a go-to editor for Brisbane creatives. In 2001, he moved back to Sydney and was soon travelling the world editing car commercials for Paul Street and making music videos for Russell Crowe.

Tony moved to Los Angeles in 2006 and in between editing promos and commercials, he cut two narrative features, 'Borderlands' and ‘The Loneliest Road In America’. A longtime political animal, he also shot, directed and edited the feature documentary "The Fall of Occupy LA".

He returned to Brisbane in April 2015 with a deep body of work and rejoined Cutting Edge as Senior Editor.
