Liz Doran preps Matchbox series, feature 'Bondi Beach Breakfast Club'

Liz Doran.

Screenwriter Liz Doran has written for The Secret Life of Us, McLeod.s Daughters, Miss Fisher.s Murder Mysteries, Dance Academy and Please Like Me.

She speaks to Jackie Keast about Gender Matters and upcoming projects..

How did you get your start as a writer?

Well, I did it the classic long way of making sure I was an expert before I put myself forward (laughs). I left school in the early 90s and actually trained as a film editor, but I always only ever wanted to be a writer. After I finished film school I did the usual thing: I applied for a lot of development [funding] for early drafts and I tried to get Screen Nsw funding for things. I was quite lucky; there was a funding round through the F.T.O., the precursor to Screen Nsw, and they funded development on a series of 50-minute scripts. »

The award-winning Australian filmmaker behind “Somersault” (starring Abbie Cornish) and the German wartime drama “Lore” will be trying her hand at a true crime limited series, reports If.com.

“Somersault” Director Cate Shortland Has a Miniseries in the Works

15 March 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Cate Shortland: sydfilmfest/ YouTube

Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland is returning to the small screen. The “Somersault” and “Lore” director is working on an eight-part miniseries for Matchbox Pictures, The Playlist reports. Her previous TV credits include episodes of “The Secret Life of Us,” “Bad Cop, Bad Cop,” and the TV movie “The Silence.” Now she’ll take on “The Monaro.”

Set in the 1830s and based on a true crime case, the miniseries will center on six women. Shortland will shoot in Monaro, a region in the south of New South Wales, Australia that served as the location for 2004’s “Somersault,” her debut feature. “It’s one of my favorite places in the world to shoot so I wanted to do something again there,” she told If. The idea for the miniseries has been gestating for quite some time: Shortland first conceived the story in film school. The project is expected to begin filming this winter in Australia, or summer in the U.S.

Shortland is working on the script for “The Monaro” with a team of writers.

Berlin Syndrome,” Shortland’s latest film, made its world premiere at Sundance this year. The thriller stars Teresa Palmer (“Lights Out”) as an Australian photojournalist traveling in Berlin. Her intense romance with a local man (Max Riemelt, “Sense8”) turns into a nightmare when she realizes that he’s holding her captive. The film will open in theaters and stream on Netflix sometime this year.

When we asked Shortland her advice for other women directors, she said, “I think that what was the best thing for me was that I never considered myself different. I just worked in the same way and I fought for my films. I didn’t have to fight to be a female filmmaker; I just had to fight to make my films,” she explained. “But I think I come from a country where I’m very fortunate. I don’t think if you are from the Middle East or some parts of Europe, maybe even North America, you have that same opportunity. I think also working with other women helps. When women get together and support each other that really helps because that has been the history of our industry in Australia.”

Australia recently unveiled two new initiatives to support female filmmakers: Screen Australia introduced Doco180 for documentary filmmakers, and the National Film Board is pushing for more women in creatives roles in film.

Somersault” Director Cate Shortland Has a Miniseries in the Works was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
