Just this week we had about 20 people on set in a very glamorous scene, there was no need for ballet skills for those 20 though. There should be much more coming through over the next few months. If you want to find out more about the series, you can have a look at the article linked below.

All I can say is that some of our people have already been successful in landing a place on the production and that we are submitting more people at the moment.
Dozens of our MCTV people are on set this week filming a new movie for Korea with Lee Byung Hun. The star just finished accepting the Best Actor award at the 10th Asian Film Awards and has been featured in movies such as Terminator, GI Joe, The Magnificent Seven.

While the odds are pretty long for a best picture win, the chances of further accolades are pretty high. Already the film has a very impressive list of awards to be proud of. And to think that the movie almost didn’t happen.
As with almost every production filmed here in Sydney, MCTV people were on set and a big part of the action. Heavy costumes and long hours meant this one was almost as gruelling as the apocalyptic world they inhabited.
