We are so excited about the new Alien Movie that will be filming here in Sydney this year. It’s too early to tell how many people they will need for the production but one thing is for sure. If you want a chance at being in this movie you will need to be signed up before casting begins.
It’s not just this movie that’s got us excited though. There’s been a TV production boom happening in Sydney and we are expecting it to continue through 2016. You’d better get your skates on or you might miss out.
The director revealed details of the ‘Alien’ origin stories as he begins pre-production on the followup to ‘Prometheus’ in Australia.
We are currently submitting people for a new production called Return of Sardaar Ji which is the sequel to the popular film Sadaar Ji starring Diljit Dosanjh. Diljit Dosanjh is a real superstar of Punjabi movies and it will be a privilege for anyone who get’s selected for this production to work with such a big name in India.
We are always looking for people from different backgrounds to fill roles for the wide range of productions we place people in here at MCTV.

With so many MCTV people working on Hacksaw Ridge you would think we would be able to give away a few secrets about the upcoming movie filming here in Sydney. Unfortunately we are bound by confidentiality agreements just as our talent are to keep the details a surprise until the big day.
Fortunately our local media make a sport out of movie rumours so here are the latest rumours and a few great shots from the set of Hacksaw Ridge. You can check out the source below for more gossip about the movie.
TERESA Palmer has a new man in her life — but her husband, fellow actor Mark Webber, has nothing to worry about.
In late 2014 180 MCTV Actors and Extras worked alongside Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford in the new thriller “The Truth”. Another example of MCTV placing more people in film and tv than any other agency in Sydney.
With all the new productions coming online in the next few months, there is bound to be lot’s of work for MCTV Talent.
What’s even better is that according to this review, “The Truth” is a gripping thriller about politics, war and the media. At least two of those you should avoid as discussion topics on Christmas day.
Truth is about the 2004 news story, aired on CBS’s 60 Minutes, that showed the new reality: you don’t have to be right if you attack a news organisation, you just have to be vicious and determined.
Over 40 MCTV actors and extras should be so pleased that Mad Max Fury Road cleaned up at last night’s AACTA Awards. With so many long days and very heavy costumes, the guys who worked on this production put in the hard yards. Of course, plenty of overtime was forthcoming and the pride of being part of an extremely successful production and franchise.
Meanwhile, the original Mad Max himself Mel Gibson is in town filming his own production Hacksaw Ridge. Production is still continuing with MCTV people attending shoots daily.
GEORGE Miller’s epic film Mad Max: Fury Road has been crowned the best film of the Australian industry’s biggest year at the box office since the 1990s.
It’s worth having a peek at the interview with Cate Blanchett about the local industry too. She talks about the magnetism of Australia and why we have so many talented filmmakers wanting to make their productions here.
“Australia is a very magnetic country”.. “people making films here are extraordinarily talented”
Finally, If you are up for a wild ride and haven’t seen Mad Max Fury Road yet, you should check out the trailer.
Even though the countdown to Christmas is already in full swing, MCTV talent are working on productions all over Sydney. For those of you with a good singing voice, feel free to sing the following to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas.

The Daughter stars Geoffrey Rush, Ewen Leslie, Odessa Young and Sam Neill and contains performances from around 40 MCTV people too.
Recently shown at the Sydney film festival but to be released to the Big Screen in March, the daughter will be “Deeply involving and emotionally searing” according to Variety
A new investment of $1.2M from the NSW Government into 19 new film, TV and online productions is expected to generate $32.2M of film expenditure in NSW and up to 2,300 jobs. Of course that’s good news for MCTV talent with many more small and large productions expected to film in and around Sydney.
Feature film Dance Academy The Comeback will be filmed in Sydney with a second film The Living Universe filmed in Parkes. The documentary The Shadowland will be made in northern NSW, Gosford and Newcastle, and another documentary Missing will be substantially filmed in Western Sydney.
