West Australian Web Series World Premiere
Greenfield is an Australian-Danish ScreenWest 3-to-1 cinematic soap-drama web-series set in rural Australia. Filmed in Merredin, WA over the course of a month, the cast and crew worked and lived out of the old Cummins Theatre with the support of the local community. We included members of the community as actors and extras in the production, as well as offered acting and film-making workshops as a thanks for supporting our time in their town. The series is an observational drama and it deals with many issues that are very present in rural communities within Australia today, so we felt it was very important to get the people of Merredin involved in our production.
With a Danish Director and Cinematographer on board, we were able to tee up support from the Danish Film Institute allowing post-production to take place at their facilities in Copenhagen. Both ScreenWest and the DFI have shown so much support to this very low-budget production because of their belief in what we were doing. The project has also just been nominated for four West Australian screen awards in the areas of acting and best drama short form.
