Melbourne Design escape
Wednesday night I attended a talk by some of the creative team on “Phryne Fisher Murder Mysteries”. Set in Melbourne in the 1920’s, it’s a stylish and enjoyable ABC Australian series with the second series currently in production. The event was organised by the Melbourne chapter of the Australian Production Design Guild. Speakers were Australian cinematographer Roger Lancer who has worked on all Kenneth Branagh directed films, and Emmy Nominated Costume Designer Marion Boyce. It was fantastic to get an insider’s view of the processes involved.
I took the opportunity to visit the National Gallery of Victoria ‘Ballet & Fashion’ exhibition on until 19 May. Also showing at the ACMI is the ‘Hollywood Costumes’ exhibition until 18 August – so much fun, art and education (& new boots) in just 2 days.
