A unique concept in entertainment and corporate functions.

The “LAST PARADISE” event combines the power of cinema with celebrity speaker to create a unique and entertaining event which  inspires people in life and business.

How it works.

The event has been described by attendees as a life-changing experience, leading them to explore their potential and purpose in work and play. It also inspires parents and kids to recreate outdoors, study science and become ambassadors for the wilderness, together with creating an exciting life plan.

The film and speaker

The multi-award-winning film LAST PARADISE was created over 45 years by innovator and physicist Clive Neeson and has completed a highly successful 60 cinema premiere tour of Australia launched by Tim Winton.

The film was created with the Lord of the Rings team, plus generous contributions from classic music artists like Cat Stevens. It captures the pioneering spirit and stunning beauty of West Australia on the big screen. But the real power is all between the lines of innovation and extreme adventure.

The show has been highly commended by professors in USA for conferences, education, corporations, interest groups and communities. Your event in West Australia can be booked at the Backlot Perth, presented by the film-maker and physicist Clive Neeson in person or any celebrity of your choice. The Backlot Perth is a state of the art cinema with self contained bar and lounge for a hassle-free corporate function, training or group entertainment. Food can also be provided. Two special versions of “LAST PARADISE” have been prepared with National Geographic (50 minute or 90 minute).
