“Galore” trailer released on YouTube

By Gerry-Built - 17 December 2013 11

“Galore”, the feature film which wrapped production in Canberra just on 12 months ago has released a teaser trailer, in conjunction with their official selection to the Berlin International Film Festival.

Many locals appeared in the film as extras (and even bit-parts), and several of the crew were recruited from the local film community. It is interesting to see some Canberra locations in their resplendent glory…

Lots of local landmarks in this: Kambah Pool, LBG, Scrivener Dam, Tuggers Skatepark and BMX track, Mt Rogers (I think). Where else have I missed?

The magnificent jetty the kids jump off is located off Barrenjoey Drive – looking out toward the Dam and Government House (great spot for a summer dip)… (I built the jetty at Kambah Pool)

There was also the agistment(sp.?) paddocks on the side of Mt Neighbour and fields off Kambah Pool Road – local for me growing up in Kambah (as did the director, Rhys Graham)… As well as the spot on Kambah Pool road where the crew flipped a car (damn that was a sight to behold o.O) I think you also see the underpass between Chifley and Waramanga… Mt Ainslie features in the trailer, too, but you might not catch that, because most of the shots are too tight. Oh; the Woden bus interchange(with CG fireworks)…

…and Watto23; The Canberra Kids certainly speak to my experience of growing up Canberran/Kambahrian… Except for the lack of DBs and flannies – which I also managed to avoid ;-)…

As Ms Thumper noted, it’s Puberty Blues (TV series, not classic Australian film) set in Canberra in the current time.

Still, I’ll give it a go. Looks alright.

This looks like somewhat of a change of pace for Miss Fisher’s prim and proper Dot!

I do love it when RiotACT threads dissolve into snark. It’s a special kind of beauty.

Please let them smoke, it keeps down the population.

I hope these teenagers are married in this film. The house they used was owned by an elderly churchy lady.

Teenagers having sex, smoking, fighting, crashing cars, declaring undying love…

Surely none of that ever happens in Canberra.

Aren’t these film production companies supposed to be adhering to standards around the depiction of smoking in films aimed at young people? There is a lot of cigarette placement just in the trailer. I’d like to know the storyline rationale. Smoking is not supposed to be either gratuitous (e.g. just advertising) or aimed at glamorising smoking. It could be argued that even in an adolescent grunge type film, it’s immediately glamorising smoking to see smokes in young actors’ hands. The authorities should insist that this film runs graphic warning supers all over this movie. And gives it a rating to suit.

Please do keep your moron drivel to yourself.

I’ll never forget seeing the kambah tavern in Somersault, a film i quite liked and probably launched Abby Cornish career. So i’ll probably watch this one to see if the “kids” in this film are real canberrans or not 🙂
