Hopes are high for upcoming Australian monster movie Red Billabong, although any news of a release still eludes us. Shot in Queensland over six weeks, Luke Sparke’s directorial debut is being held up in post-production as CGI work on the creature continues. Sparke assures us that this is merely a case of taking the time to get things right though, telling Cinema Australia:
“I can’t recall another Aussie film integrating a fully CGI character…like this. We need to be sure it’s working – and it is. We’re plugging away at the visual effects. These things take time, but doing something never done before in Australian cinema takes even longer.”
Fair enough. At least he’s given us a few stills to chew on while we wait, and a promotional campaign should be unleashed upon us soon.
“There will be more build-up in the coming months,”
Sparke says. “You’re going to love it!”
In the Australian Outback, two brothers discover old secrets and family lies. As their friends start to go missing they fear they are being stalked by someone or something from their worst nightmares. But is it just a story? A legend? A hoax? Or is it real?
