Chris Hemsworth sees a bright future ahead for the Australian production industry. He remains committed to bringing more productions to Australia as he promotes his new Australian-made Netflix movie ‘Spiderhead’.
As reported in the Sydney Morning Herald, Hemsworth continues to show support for the local industry by insisting films are made here “The last three or four films I’ve done were supposed to shoot in Atlanta or the UK, and I said, ‘I’m not doing it unless it shoots here.'”
“I just prefer to be here; I’ve got three young kids and I love being here. I’ve travelled so much over the last few years and loved it, but this is my home. And half the time I see so many Australian crew members on sets overseas, and everyone’s saying the same thing: ‘Why couldn’t we have shot this back home?’ I feel thankful to be able to have an opinion in it, and that it’s worked out a few times the last few years.”
He also said the future of film in Australia is in a new phase of growth and renewal after some uncertainty:
“Because there was a period recently when there was a lot of uncertainty in the film industry, about, ‘How much work is there now?’ and ‘Are we making films any more?’ And that’s what’s been so great about working at home and talking to crew that have worked here for 40 years. There was a real dip in production, and now it feels like it’s reinvigorated and there’s another life to it. So it’s all positive.”
With a great variety of work at the moment in TV, Film and advertising we are feeling positive too.
