Judy Malmgren Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away
Judy Malmgren Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Judy Malmgren.
It is with great sadness that we share the news that following a short illness our partner at Media World for over 32 years, Judy Malmgren, passed away suddenly last week. Judy passed peacefully, with her sister Barb, brother David and sister in-law Anna Maree by her bedside.
Prior to joining Media World, Judy gained a Bachelor of Education and taught Secondary School Art and Ceramics for twelve years rising to Art Department Co-ordinator. Judy came on board Media World as a partner in 1988, a move that proved to be pivotal as she encouraged the company to acquire the rights to make the film of the classic children’s novel The Silver Brumby.
As Media World’s resident Silver Brumby expert and close friend of the author Elynne Mitchell, Judy oversaw and wrote the stories for the company’s first animation venture, the 39 part animation series of The Silver Brumby. She also story-lined the company’s second animated series, The New Adventures of Ocean Girl.
Judy shared Executive Producer, Associate Producer and Financial Manager credits on all of Media World’s feature films and TV series including John Callahan’s QUADS!, Dogstar, The Circuit, Stone Bros, The Flamin’ Thongs, Dogstar-Christmas in Space and most recently co-production seasons of The Strange Chores with Ludo Studios and 3 seasons of Little J & Big Cuz with Blue Rocket Productions for Ned Lander Media.
All of us at Media World are devastated by the loss of our dear friend and colleague. Our love goes out to all her family, friends and many work associates. Judy will be sorely missed.
Vale Judy Malmgren
We are saddened to hear of the passing of Judy Malmgren who made a significant contribution to Victoria’s screen industry in her 32 years at Media World Pictures.
Judy’s lifelong love of horses, and especially The Silver Brumby classic series of children’s books, led to the company’s feature and animated series adaptation.
She was also responsible for many of the stories for the long running children’s series and shared Executive Producer credits with business partner Colin South on many of Media World’s productions.
Our thoughts are with Judy’s family, friends and colleagues
