106 MCTV People took part in the filming of Peter Rabbit 2 earlier this year (Click through for the trailer). We have an awesome track record of getting people work on big budget films and TV series. Most productions that come to town have 100 to 200 MCTV people on them. We are pretty excited about the prospects for next year now that Disney owns Fox Studios. There are already two major films announced Shang-Chi and Thor but there’s every chance there will be more.
Our very own Marc cops a cup of hot coffee to the face in this cute promo for the Aria Awards (click through for video). He plays the straight man of the duo very well in my humble opinion. I bet he’s glad he only had to act as the assistant and not be Guy’s assistant for real.
In a much darker portrayal of The Invisible Man than the 1933 original (click through for trailer), Elisabeth Moss is tormented by her ex lover. Made worse by the fact that everyone around her thinks she is crazy. Looking at the trailer, there’s no hint that this whole production was filmed in Sydney, but I will be watching keenly to spot the scenes from Martin Place. In total, there were 91 MCTV People who were part of the filming earlier this year and with a February release date, there’s not long to wait.
See the trailer for the new movie here and a taste of the 1933 film after.
and snippets from the original
If you were one of the 98 MCTV people who were part of the filming of Doctor Doctor Season 4 earlier this year there’s good news. The series will air in 2020 after being delayed from the initial release for 2019. We also have our fingers crossed for a possible season 5 but it’s too early to make a call on that.
Marvel fans went nuts when they saw that the star of Shang-Chi was in Sydney. It seems that Simu Liu is quite taken with the beauty of Sydney. Fans of the movie put two and two together and concluded that production is starting soon.
Here at MCTV we have to remain tight lipped. Any of our MCTV background and featured actors who work on the production won’t be able to share their experiences publicly until well after the film is released. It’s a small price to pay to be involved in something so exciting.
With so many of the AACTA nominations for Television series being produced in Sydney, you can’t help be proud of the great work that is being done in this city. MCTV people appear in at least nine of the nominated series. Mr Inbetween, The LetDown, Lambs of God, On the Ropes, Secret City, Total Control, Hardball, The Unlisted and Frayed all have MCTV people playing roles. Many of these series have also been picked up for international distribution and are gaining a following offshore.
Viveka and Julius were pretty excited to see themselves in this new Beat Storm Season spot with Johnathan Thurston. You can check out the full video below. Well Done Guys.
Checkout Julian’s great work in this campaign for the Commonwealth Bank. Julian has been doing background work with MCTV for a few years now and has done work for Google, The Invisible Man, Mr Inbetween, The Commons, Samsung, Stonleigh Wines, Jim Beam, Mazda and plenty of others. He’s built up some great experience and we can’t wait to see what role he lands next.
The first shots from The Commons are looking very good. The cast is stacked with talent and Pedestrian TV has a shot of each of the main cast members on set. Last I checked we had over 200 people on The Commons but that figure has grown since then. Production is winding down now but the Drovers Wife is starting up and The Fallout is still going strong.
Comicbook.com has published what they think is the production start date for the new Marvel movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings shooting in Sydney. They base it on a listing from a film industry website in the US but also have some more details about the upcoming movie. This probably means that go-sees may happen during November/December 2019 with filming to start in 2020 but the exact dates are anyone’s guess.
