With 'Boy Swallows Universe' to hit Netflix on Thursday, executive producer Andrew Mason, director Bharat Nalluri and young actor Felix Cameron talk about the process of bringing Trent Dalton's best-selling novel to life.
If you can tell a story in the pub, you can write a film script: You just need to know the techniques. So says 'Master and Commander', 'Happy Feet', 'Tanna' and 'Hotel Mumbai' scribe John Collee, who is emphatic that there there is no "dark magic" to screenwriting.
Travis Fimmel, Simon Baker, Phoebe Tonkin, Bryan Brown, and Anthony La Paglia will bring Trent Dalton's 'Boy Swallows Universe' to life for Netflix, with production on the eight-part series now underway in Brisbane.
Australian journalist Trent Dalton’s debut novel, a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story set in Brisbane in the 1980s, is to be turned into an international TV drama series.
