Personal Quote:

The interesting thing is I've done all of my post-production back in Australia for all of the American movies, which I really enjoy for personal reasons. But also because it means I can put money into the local industry which has been great...

Trivia:

Though Hicks continues to work in Hollywood, after earning 7 Oscar nominations for Shine (1996), Adelaide, South Australia remains Hicks' home. "I love being here (Los Angeles) for a purpose and while Adelaide is about as far away from the business as you can get, I can still make calls", he says. See more »
