Moody, Atmospheric Trailer For Ivan Sen's Outback Crime Thriller Goldstone

28 April 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Australia's Ivan Sen made quite a splash around the world with his 2013 crime thriller Mystery Road - an artfully executed tale of aboriginal detective Jay Swan working on the fringes of 'civilized' society - and he reunites that team to bring another story revolving his compelling lead character with Goldstone. Director Ivan Sen’s new feature Goldstone sees the excellent Aaron Pedersen (Mystery Road, 2013) reprise his role as troubled Indigenous detective Jay Swan. On the trail of a missing person, Jay finds himself in the small mining town of Goldstone, where he is immediately arrested for drink driving by young local cop Josh (Alex Russell). When Jay’s motel room is blasted with gunfire, it becomes clear that something larger is at play in the...

Alex Russell and Aaron Pedersen in Ivan Sen's Goldstone.

When If speaks to Sydney Film Festival director Nashen Moodley, he's at the tail-end of a whirlwind day in which Ivan Sen's.Goldstone was unveiled as the festival's opening night film, to screen at Sydney's State Theatre on June 8..

So what's the reaction been like?

"So far it's been very positive," Moodley said..

"People are very eager to see Ivan Sen's new film. He's such a special filmmaker, and such a multi-talented one. He writes, directs, edits, composes the score, and has such an incredible body of work."

Moodley saw the film almost seven weeks ago, in early March, just after Sen had finished it.

"There was an opportunity to see an early cut, but we had enough time to see it when it was finished, so we waited."

"The film looks incredible, and he shot it himself »

Andrew Knight on Jack Irish: "I'm really pleased with it"

8 February 2016 3:12 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Guy Pearce and Roy Billing in Jack Irish.

Asked how he's doing after a whirlwind year, screenwriter Andrew Knight is characteristically understated:.

"I'm alive and trying to construct a breakfast at the moment".

In between film work last year, Knight wrote new seasons of Rake and Jack Irish simultaneously, a process he calls "a blur"..

The new Jack.begins this Thursday - a six-part series instead of the earlier telemovies.

Knight calls the change "liberating"..

"We had more time to tell a story. The hard part was working out where everything would fall. We had an overall story, but assigning things episodically was a constant trade-off and shifting game"..

"I worked closely with the other two writers, Matt Cameron and Andrew Anastasios. The three of us would go away and write our bits, then we'd come back and say - that needs to move, this needs to shift"..

"If you're just writing a tele-movie, »

Damien Power talks debut feature Killing Ground

28 January 2016 8:15 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Aaron Glenane and Aaron Pedersen in Killing Ground.

Writer-director Damien Power describes the writing process on his thriller, Killing Ground, in one word: "long".

"I was working with producer Joe Weatherstone on another script. With that project we went to the then-afc's IndiVision lab, which was a workshop for low-budget features: a million or less. It's a workshop so we kind of pulled it apart, and I don't think we ever really put those pieces back together again"..

"But while I was in that process I had an idea for something that I thought we could make quickly and cheaply. And then eight years later, I got to make it" (laughs)..

Power's debut feature stars Aaron Pedersen, Harriet Dyer, Ian Meadows, Aaron Glenane, Maya Strange, and Tiarnie Coupland, and was inspired by an image that floated into the filmmaker's head: of an orange tent in the bush, abandoned.

Aaron Glenane and Aaron Pedersen.

Stills photographer John Platt.used a Fujifilm X-T1 to shoot stills on the set of Killing Ground, the Australian feature debut from shorts filmmaker Damien Power (Hitchhiker) which stars Harriet Dyer, Ian Meadows, Aaron Pederson, Aaron Glenane, Tiarnie Coupland and Maya Stange.

.

Harriet Dyer.

Platt walked us through his tool-kit:

.In addition to the primary X-T1 I also used a second body, 23mm and 50mm lenses and a 50-140mm zoom lens. The attitude from all on set to the X-T1 was amazingly positive. As each actor arrived on set for the first time I would introduce myself and ask if they would be Ok with me shooting during the take, while the camera was rolling. I also made a point of highlighting the camera.s silent shutter. Every one of them agreed they were relieved to know I wouldn.t be asking them to »
