Secrets of ’The Secret River’

The making of a TV mini-series

A case study of the making of Logie Award winning mini-series ‘The Secret River’, the highest rating drama on the ABC for 2015. Producers Stephen Luby and Mark Ruse developed this much acclaimed television event from Kate Grenville’s best selling novel of the same name. This entertaining and fascinating presentation will give students and teachers alike an overview of how this compelling story of survival and conflict between settlers and indigenous people in the early years of colonial Australia was made. From the writing of the script, the auditioning of actors, the filming in remote locations and the handling of confronting truths about our indigenous history, participants will gain insights into the complexities of film and television production, and the many issues that arise while telling stories for the screen.

For schools – A ‘double-period’ presentation suitable for single class or larger groups. It includes clips from the mini-series, candid ‘behind the scenes’ footage, and revealing anecdotes from the set!

For Tertiary institutions – a lecture style workshop and/or Tutorials available, adapted to suit particular course streams.
