Imagine That

by Ian Brodie· October 19, 2021· in · 0 comments
In partnership with Screenwest and Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission, Ian Brodie Consulting has worked on showcasing the incredible landscapes and people of the region, through two film guides; Imagine That and On Location. Both documents offer a snapshot for filmmakers and visitors alike to connect with the stories and sites special to this part of the world. Imagine That is a Location Guide of the region from Hopetoun to Coolgardie, highlighting all the sites in the region that are a filmmaker's dream. It includes location information such as climate and drive times, local government contacts and a visual journey throughout the distinct sub-regions in the vast Goldfields-Esperance area. On Location is a filmography of productions already shot in the region, including both high profile feature films like Son of a Gun and grassroots hits like Desert Collectors and international favourite Aussie Gold Hunters. See the region's sites on your screen! This partnership also involved mentoring a photographer from the region and Jayde Guest from Esperance was chosen. The brief from Screenwest and GEDC was reasonably broad. Travel the region, devlop your own itinerary, look for film locations that could be utilised, photograph them and then create two PDF guides. What a great 8 days we had together travelling from Hopetoun in the south to Kalgoorlie in the north, […]

Welcome to Mount Barker I am pleased to share with you my latest film tourism project, The Rams Film Location Guidebook, produced for ScreenWest. The film Rams has been a favourite both in Australia and New Zealand since its release late last year. It is also available on various digital platforms. Rams received major production investment from Screen Australia, Screenwest, Lotterywest and the Western Australian Regional Film Fund. Roadshow Films distribute Rams throughout Australia and New Zealand with worldwide sales through WestEnd Films. Film tourism is an important part of screen production and this project provides a cost effective and efficient way to further promote both the film and the region. I would like to thank ScreenWest and the production company for the opportunity to both create this publication and the time spent on set as Unit Stills Photographer. Please click on the link below to read the guide - may you enjoy this journey into rural Western Australia via the magic of film.  From ScreenWest Screenwest worked with photographer Ian Brodie, the Great Southern Development Commission and the producers of Western Australian Feature Film RAMS to create a legacy for the local community. Filmed in Mount Barker, feature film Rams has […]
