Boys in Trees finished shooting on Friday. A lot of very tired crew after a hectic 5 week shoot of mainly night filming.
Wolf Creek – The Television Series has begun an 8 week shoot which is keeping lots of crew nice and busy. Rod Bolton is B Camera Operator and is having lots of fun with toys – 3 x Alexis Amiras, a Red Dragon on the Roni + assorted DSLRs, GoPros and the odd drone. A quote from Rod “All going well and so far the body count is quite low…….considering” Travis Williamson – Boom Operator says it is a lovely crew with good spirits all round. Other Adelaide Crew working on it are: Carly Maple – Production Coordinator, Erica Brien – Art Director, Amy Baker – Set Decorator, Ben Crabtree – Buyer/Set Dresser, David Wilkinson – Buyer/Set Dresser, Geoff Tarr – Standby Props, Brad Lanyon – 1st AD, Maxx Corkindale – Focus Puller (Block 1), Bayley Broome-Peake – Clapper Loader/2nd AC, Olivia Iacobelli – Costume Supervisor, John Smith – Key Grip, Justin Van Zyl – Best Boy Grip, Graeme Shelton – Gaffer, Dave Smith - Best Boy Elex, Jen Bichard – Safety Supervisor/Unit Nurse, Josh Jaeger – Unit Manager.
The annual AACTA award nominations are out. The Industry Awards will be presented in Sydney on Monday 30th November and the acting awards Wednesday 9th December. The mini series shot here, Deadline Gallipoli , has received a few nominations including BEST SOUND TELEVISION for Des Kenneally. This is his 6th nomination in 5 years with 4 of those winners for Des. A great result and hope we see him on the stage again this year. Pete Baxter was nominated for BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN TELEVISION for Deadline but couldn’t have done it without his amazing Adelaide art department team including Geoff Tarr, Ben Crabtree and Annalisa Francesa.
If you haven’t seen Last Cab to Darwin you have missed a great film. A lot of talented Adelaide Crew people worked on it and it has received loads of nominations including a very well deserved one for the fabulous Michael Caton for BEST LEAD ACTOR FEATURE FILM.
