Sydney Will Be
In New Film
Sydney, with its towering modern buildings, its mellow colonial architecture and its teeming waterfront, is to be the star of the first production by a new film company.
The live actors-all
local people-will be just a supporting cast.
The company-One World Film Productions-claims it will be the first feature film with an accent on realism to be shot in any Australian city.
The film's probable title is "Satin day to Monday." It will tell the story of two escaped prisoners, and it will all be out- doors, within a mile of Sydney G.P.O. There will be no studio work.
TWO WRITERS ,
Most of the action will be on Fort Denison or Pinch Gut Island, in Sydney Harbour. Australian Lee Robinson, a documentary film man, who made "Crocodile Hunters" and "Flight Plan," helped to write the stoiy in collaboration willi Mr. Inman Hunter. They will direct it, too.
Mr. Robinson said, "We aim to capture the realism ol
"Open City" and "Bicycle
And Mr. Inman said, "We plan to-make intelligent films,
and we'll go anywhere in the i world to shoot a good story." ¡
Backers of the new company are Mr. William Becker, ol
Mosman, and some business j
friends: The State Government and~-'the Maritime Services
Board are helping with facili- ties. ____________
