About Brenton

Brenton Foale developed a love for acting at the age of ten, having attended filmmaking workshop camps run by the South Australian Association of Screen Education (SAASE). At the age of seventeen he appeared alongside Michael York in the ABC/BBC produced tele-movie “The Four Minute Mile” as a journalist. From there he appeared in Neighbours, All The Way, TVC’s, and other television and film appearances.
In 1992 Brenton began performing magic as “The Black Fantasm” and “Bento the Magic Clown”, characters who he continues to perform as today. He won awards for his magic through the Magic Circle of Victoria, and was Vice President of the Magic Circle in 2015, a huge honour for magicians.
The last few years Brenton has appeared in several Australian movies, particularly “Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla” directed by Stuart Simpson, “Murderdrome” and “From Parts Unknown: Fight Like a Girl”, both directed by Daniel Armstrong, and music videos. Brenton can also be seen in the feature film “The Legend of Ben Hall”, written and directed by Matthew Holmes.
In 2013, Brenton wrote his first screenplay, a thriller called “INIQUITOUS”, which has gone through many transformational drafts, the 29th of which is the filming draft. Two years of preparation, and refining, has gone into the script and we are now ready to begin filming.
Casting for “INIQUITOUS” has been unconventional, in that nobody was asked to audition. Brenton hand selected his cast, asking them to provide him with show reels and headshot photographs, and from there Brenton was able to determine who should play which characters.
Brenton is very excited about this production, and has a cast with great screen presence and experience in the industry. He has worked tirelessly on developing and promoting this film, on every social media platform available.
After “INIQUITOUS” Brenton will be working on another thriller screenplay, plus a biopic of Jesse Younan, a talented musician and song writer who lost his life to cancer in 2006 at the age of 35.
Brenton directs theatre productions for FREMANTLE PERFORMING ARTISTS, a theatre company in Perth, Western Australia he formed in 2017, and has written stage plays for that company, including the hit comedy "Love and Music". He is currently writing another stage play, which at this stage is untitled.
Brenton is also the editor of Behind the Scenes, a magazine for the Australian Entertainment Industry, and is soon to be a radio host for Heritage FM, with his show "That's Entertainment".
