Bill has been producing film and television for over 25 years. Raised in California, Leimbach trained in film at the Central London Film School and spent his formative working years with the BBC and in the English film industry.
He worked in the UK Film industry for ten years before moving his production company to Australia in the 1980’s where he formed Lucky Country Productions. It was through this company that he produced over 25 films for the likes of National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, BBC, ABC and SBS and Australian commercial TV networks 7, 9 and 10.
BENEATH HILL 60 was his First Feature Film, the Australia World War I epic, distributed by Paramount in early 2010. This WW I saga was a box office hit and picked up 12 Australian Nominations including Best Film and Best Director and Best Script. Click here to learn more about BH60

Like BENEATH HILL 60, this story is a very unknown part of Australian History. Many know that Banjo Paterson wrote WALTZING MATILDA and that it has become almost a National Anthem. They may also know that the SWAGMAN from the song drowns himself in the Billabong, calling out the now infamous ‘you’ll never catch me alive’. But there are many mysteries that shroud those events.
The same Producer and Writer team that created BENEATH HILL 60 will produce the BANJO & MATILDA – an action romance that will unveil not only the mysteries of the song, but the passionate love story during its writing and the violent activities that lead to the ARMED CONFLICT behind the lyrics.
The dramatic activity of this time is the backdrop for our three sided love story – between Scottish Australian Christina who arrives in Queensland with a unforgettable tune in her head, Irish Australian Sarah who arrives with Banjo, and Banjo himself, soon torn between the two women and their differing responses to the chaos and violence happening around them. Caught in the middle of this is the German who manages the property manager where they are all stranded, in the biggest Wet Season in 20 years.
Lime Cordiale are a Sydney based quartet who grew out of the
Northern Beaches music scene.
Consisting of brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach, Brendan Champion and
James Jennings, the group came about after the boys recognised their mutual love
of all things pop and their desire to create original and exciting music.
Drawing from their classically trained background and experiences from their awkward teenage years,
Lime Cordiale strives to create strong pop music with a fresh sound.
At first the music seems to span a wide range of genres, but it soon becomes apparent that Lime Cordiale has created a distinct sound and strong style that belongs to this band alone.
