Film shoot in Docklands

08 May 2014

Film shoot in Docklands Image

Hollywood will come to Docklands this month, when shooting for major film ‘The Moon and the Sun’ takes place at Melbourne City Marina onboard local heritage ship the Enterprize.

Starring Pierce Brosnan, William Hurt and Fan Bingbing, the fantasy adventure film is set in 1600s France and began shooting at Docklands Studios in April.

Filming is taking place at both the studio and throughout Melbourne and its surrounds.

Part of the film focuses on a search for the mythical mermaid and the filming at Melbourne City Marina involves the recreation of a stormy night on the North Sea.

Location manager Stephen Brett and on-site location manager Pia Emery attended the Docklands Community Forum on April 30 to inform local residents of what the filming would involve.

With filming taking place overnight between May 6 and May 8, Mr Brett and Ms Emery explained that the special effects required to create the “storm” would include a wind machine that would create elevated levels of sound, along with lightening and fog effects.

Production of The Moon and the Sun at Docklands Studios is expected to conclude at the end of the month.
