Phil Avalon is one of Australia s most successful independent film producers. In his autobiography From Steel City to Hollywood Phil tells his story of a kid growing up in Steel City - Newcastle, NSW; his memories as a surfer in the early 1970s; as a struggling actor, a Cleo centrefold and later a writer, director and producer. In 1978, he wrote, produced and starred in arguably Australia s most successful independant film, Summer City which unearthed a young Mel Gibson, Steve Bisley and John Jarratt.
Since that time he has made more than a dozen films starring noteable Hollywood stars and captured a Masters World Surfing Championship along the way.
