20 October 2016 9:32 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Glitch.

The second season of.Glitch will be co-produced by the ABC, Matchbox and Netflix.—.making it the closest thing to a Netflix Original produced locally..

The first season of the zombie drama streams on Netflix Oz and debuted on Netflix U.S. last week (October 15).

According to Chris Oliver-Taylor, MD of Matchbox Pictures and the show's Ep, "Glitch was something that Netflix were interested in very early as a result of the quality of series one."

"Matchbox always tries to produce programs that work for an international audience. The international deal was reasonably simple to construct; the more complicated piece of the puzzle was working with Netflix, NBCUniversal and the ABC to work out the local Australian arrangements, working through windowing and how to manage on-demand."

Oliver-Taylor is excited about what the deal might mean for the local sector.

"We think that by bringing on Netflix to be a »

The Dp roundtable: If chats to some of our leading female cinematographers

15 September 2016 4:29 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Tania Lambert shoots a Toyota Tvc.

If speaks to cinematographers Anna Howard, Tania Lambert, Katie Milwright, Mandy Walker, Bonnie Elliott, Emma Paine, Velinda Wardell, Sky Davies and Ashley Barron about rising up the ranks, the gender gap and the DPs that inspire them.

No woman has ever won the Oscar for best cinematography. In fact, no woman has ever been nominated. In Australia, Abs statistics to 2011 put the percentage of female directors of photography at around 6 percent. Were you aware of the gender divide at the beginning of your career?

Lambert: I was keenly aware of the gender imbalance in the camera department when I first started as a camera assistant. It didn.t bother me a huge deal, but I felt I had to work extra hard to be respected in that role. There were only a few female camera assistants I knew of and one female Dop, Anna Howard, »

A different dynamic: indie feature Zelos boasts female-dominated crew

28 June 2016 10:57 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Indie feature Zelos is somewhat of anomaly in Australian cinema — it.s a film helmed predominantly by women, including a female director, co-producers, writer, cinematographer and editor. .

The film is the feature debut of director Jo-Anne Brechin, who first met writer Claire Harris when studying screenwriting at Aftrs in 2013.

.I remember hearing her pitch [Zelos] in class and just being like, .let.s do that together,.. Brechin told If.

They formed a pact to make the film when Harris finished the screenplay; a vision that has now come to fruition, with Zelos.currently in post.

A coming of age story, Zelos follows 30-something Bernard (Ben Mortley, Lantana, McLeod.s Daughters) who feels he has his life set up. He.s got a successful career, beachside apartment and a girlfriend, Sarah, who he adores.

However, his life is turned upside down when Sarah (Shannon Ashlyn, Wolf Creek 2, Love Child) confesses to having an affair overseas. »

The Daughter review – small-town Australia haunted by the past

28 May 2016 11:59 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A family’s long-buried secret is unearthed in an Ibsen adaptation marked by fine performances

Very loosely based on Henrik Ibsen’s play The Wild Duck, this solid drama is transposed to contemporary Australia and a community blighted by a dying logging industry. Christian (Paul Schneider) returns home to attend the marriage of his father (Geoffrey Rush), but in doing so unearths a long-buried secret that has ramifications for the family of his best friend, Oliver (Ewen Leslie). The sense of communities rent apart by spectres from the past is reminiscent of the work of Ray Lawrence, the director of Lantana and Jindabyne. And it’s perhaps no coincidence that director Simon Stone appeared as an actor in the latter. Other influences include Terrence Malick, particularly in the use of sound and the way fragments of dialogue bleed across scenes. The melodrama of the third act is mitigated by the quality of the performances. »
