Production boom at Docklands Studios

03 May 2017

Docklands Studios had one of its busiest periods ever in April, with all five soundstages occupied by local and international productions.

Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley, visited Docklands Studios on April 6, as productions of The Footy Show, films Winchester, The Wheel, Choir Girl and documentary Guilty were taking place at Victoria’s biggest filming facility.

Productions at Docklands Studios have contributed more than $17 million to the state economy.

Minister Foley said: “From a Hollywood feature, to local indies and a TV favourite, this production boom at Docklands Studios is a sign of the strength and diversity of Victoria’s screen sector.”

He also said the productions would bring more job opportunities to Docklands.

“Our world-class studios, combined with our investment, ensures that there are plenty more exciting projects in the pipeline,” Mr Foley said.

Thriller Winchester is directed by Australian directors the Spierig Brothers and it was the second time the duo had worked at Docklands Studios, following their 2014 feature Predestination.

Filming for The Wheel, an independently financed film directed by Melbourne-based Dee McLachlan, started in April.

The recording of The Footy Show takes place on soundstage five at Docklands Studios. ABC’s Q&A program will also film at Docklands Studios in the future.
