The first day started backstage at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne’s Botanical Gardens, and traveled to the historic Williamstown Cemetery in the afternoon. ‘Day one went exceptionally well’, said director Daniel Armstrong, ‘it’s a great relief to be over the first full day with a new crew and some brand new equipment and technology, and to finally know that it all comes together on location efficiently’.
Day one also introduced some of Australia’s top wrestling talent as Strongman Pictures’ latest stars. The Ox, Pitbull and Mr. Big stepped in front of the lens to crack out the first of their scenes. ‘One very interesting thing about this film’, says Armstrong, ‘is that we have professional wrestlers turning their hand to acting, and professional actors turning their hand to wrestling’.
‘The rehearsal process has been a combination of workshops, acting lessons, wrestling lessons and camera tests’, says Armstrong, ‘it’s unlike anything I’ve ever worked on, and we are developing unique and creative processes to bring the story to life in a collaborative environment, utilising the talents of all our cast and crew and those of our major production partner, PCWe’.
‘For instance’, continues Armstrong, ‘Rebecca Bolton from PCWe, is both cast and crew, she has been working with actors to advise and train them in the skill of professional wrestling, whilst working with the actors in rehearsals on her scenes.’ Rebecca has 8 years experience as a professional wrestler, and is currently promoting her own live event – Wrestlefest – the first of which will be held on October the 12th, 2007 (for more info on this event visit (
