She subsequently left community television to pursue work on various films and TV series shot in Canada, South-East Queensland, and Far-North Queensland by companies including HBO,[2] FOX,[3] Dimeworth Films,[4] and Limelight International.[5]

In 2012 Liz Tomkins and Judd Tilyard produced the short film Frame 137[9] which Tilyard also wrote and directed. The film is based on the comic of the same name crafted by The Crow creator James O'Barr[10] and the sound track features a collaboration of Iggy Pop's Dog Food by Dave Grohl and Nick Oliveri.[11] Other contributors to the sound track Norwegian punk rock musician Happy Tom and The Dwarves lead guitarist Marc Diamond.
