Engine Appoints Dave Wallace as In-house Director/Producer

Engine has today announced award-winning food, travel and lifestyle director Dave Wallace has joined its business as in-house director/producer.

Wallace's career spans 16 years in the film and TV industry across Sydney and New York, specialising in the pop culture, sports and the food/lifestyle spaces across a range of clients that include Sony, Red Bull, Pepsi and Cricket Australia. Wallace's film-like approach is embedded in a number of TV series he has directed including the award-winning Paddock to Plate with Matt Moran, Ten's Far Flung series featuring Gary Mehigan and Around the World with Manu Feildel.

Says Wallace: "It's no secret that I've always had my eye on Engine. The collaboration and quality of work at Engine is second to none, they have a team that is truly passionate about the craft. We've already worked seamlessly on projects that include the NBN Business TVC and a film for Woolworths so the decision to join the team full time was exciting."

Says Peter Gardiner, director of new business at Engine: "At Engine, we take the art, craft, science and technology of modern storytelling to make stories feel real, from concept stage to post, and it takes an ambitious and brilliant creative mind to consistently lead a team to deliver. Dave is an exceptional operator and a truly dynamic director that our clients can't get enough of so we're very excited with the appointment."
