Nathan Anderson


After beginning his career in the film industry, working on films such as The Matrix and Paradise Road, Nathan followed the dot-com explosion in the late 90s, making a transition into digital. In 1999, at the age of 25, he co-founded a tech startup that generated over 10 million unique users per month and successfully raised venture capital.

Nathan leveraged this tech and media experience to dive into multiplatform digital development and transmedia content creation. Nathan has produced content for all digital platforms, working with top international brands and companies, such as Foxtel, Disney, Viacom, ABC, BBC and NBCUniversal.

Active in XR since 2015, Nathan has produced, and EP’d over 50 XR projects, including critically acclaimed and awarded projects such as Lustration, Wentworth VR, Awake and VR Noir. His latest venture, New Canvas, continues this focus on entertainment content in the immersive media industry.

Nathan is a member of the Producers Guild of America and is on the Industry Advisory Panel with AFTRS. In 2021, Nathan was elected a Councillor of Screen Producers Australia. He is a regular speaker at industry conferences and graduated with a BA Comms from the University of Canberra and a MA by Research from AFTRS.
