Submissions are happening for Netflix’s new feature film ‘True Spirit’. The movie is based on the incredible true story of 16 year old Australian, Jessica Watson. In 2010, she became the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world. Jessica accomplished what many thought impossible, navigating some of the world’s most challenging stretches of oceans and surviving seven knockdowns while at sea for 210 days.
The movie will star Aussie actress Teagan Croft (Titans, Home and Away, The Osiris Child), with filming taking place in both Sydney and Queensland. Jessica Watson is a consultant on the movie which will be helmed by Aussie director, Sarah Spillane. You can read more details here.
Good luck to everyone who has been submitted so far!
