Father and son combine on Australian drama

17 March 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

For the best part of 20 years Chris Blackburn tried his hand at writing film scripts, a sideline to his day jobs as a newspaper and TV reporter, reality show producer and, currently, as a co-executive producer on Big Brother.

Eighteen months ago he had an idea for a crime drama about a young man whose sister has been brutally murdered, set primarily in a row of vacant houses near his home on the north coast of Nsw.

Blackburn wrote the script and asked his son Tim, a TV editor who has directed several short films to direct. Entitled Burns Point, the film is now in day seven of a 21-day shoot in and around the town of Ballina.

Asked how he.s financed the film, Chris tells If, .It.s mostly me. I.ve saved up for this and put money aside." Cast and crew are working on deferred. fees in some cases. »

Sundance 2014: ‘Laggies’ a feat of storytelling that gives women room to be indecisive and flawed

22 January 2014 12:50 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Chloë Grace Moretz and Keira Knightley star in director Lynn Shelton’s “Laggies

Laggies

Directed by Lynn Shelton

Written by Andrea Seigel

USA, 2014

Keira Knightley stars in the new movie by director Lynn Shelton (Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister) that seeks to reason why a young woman hasn’t grown up yet. It’s a film about hesitancy and not knowing exactly what you need to achieve happiness. Swimming upstream of what everyone else wants for her, the lead character experiences a sea change and begins to buck other people’s advice. Laggies  is a stimulating film that deals with individualism and perhaps relies too much on buoying a woman’s true identity with romantic interest but still succeeds in introducing a female character who dares to break away from expectation to do what she wants, even if she hasn’t a clue what that may be.
