19.12.2009Making progress on Penguin Island


The 360 team is happy to report that the Penguin Island series is half way through the editing process.

In December, experienced editor Steve Robinson joined our team of Tony Stevens and assistant Ryan Howard to edit the series and cut the different versions. It’s great to have Steve on board.

At the end of November, Director of Photography David Parer, Film Victoria attachment Ben Cunningham and Field Producer Hayley Smith completed a 2 month block of natural history filming down on the Island.

It was a tricky period as it was peak breeding season but due to the penguin’s fish source moving off the island, many of the chicks started to drastically lose weight and die.

Our camera team had to be extra careful and using lights at night around the colony was only possible in a few locations. Consequently, a lot of filming was done using special infrared cameras.

Filming has finished for 2009, but we expect to be back in the colony in January or February to do some more pickups.

18.12.2009Home Movies and Old Film Footage of Phillip Island Needed!


Do any of you know anyone who might have some old movie footage of their holidays on Phillip Island when there were still many houses in the Summerland Estate near the Penguin Parade and Nobbies?

The sorts of shots we are after are people with penguins or at the Parade in the early days, people on a day boat trip to the Seal Rocks, people at the Nobbies, people having picnics on the beach or anywhere in the Summerland estate where you can see the many houses that used to be there.

Please call us if you think you might have something of interest!

16.12.2009Seed Hunter goes global!


Seed Hunter has been busily making its way around the globe to various film festivals in Canada, USA, China and Japan.

In October, Seed Hunter screened in Toronto at the Planet In Focus Festival and also in Yerevan, Armenia at the Sun Child Film Festival. Armenian seed collector Natalya Rukhyan was able to present the film and chat to the audience.

The film was then invited to screen at the United Nations Association Film Festival in Palo Alto, just outside San Francisco, at the end of October. This year, the Festival’s theme was climate change and energy, so we were thrilled to have Seed Hunter up there on the big screen.

Another award came our way in November. Seed Hunter won the Gold Panda Grand Prize for Nature at the Sichuan TV Festival in Chengdu, China. Sally Ingleton was there to pick up the award.

Sally then went on to Japan where Seed Hunter had a special screening at the Australian Embassy in Tokyo followed by a screening in Kanazawa as part of the inaugural Kanazawa Environment Film Festival run by the United Nations University. The screening was followed by a public seminar on environmental film making.

05.11.2009‘Menzies and Churchill at War’


Menzies and Churchill at War is screening on the History Channel Monday 9th of November 7:30 pm.

The Green Guide’s Brad Newsome comments:

“This documentary draws on Menzies’ own diary and home movies at it tells the story of his protracted wartime struggle with Churchill, who Menzies saw as a poorly advised autocrat surrounded by yes men… The documentary’s many re-enactments are compelling, featuring Matthew King as Menzies and Bud Tingwell, in one of his last screen roles, as Churchill.  Great stuff.”
