The shooting of Resistance; a Movie and twenty six episode sci-fi television series.
Resistance is the brain child of Andrew Dillon a Canberra resident who wrote and directs the show.
With an academy award winner in Andrew Lesnie (Lord of the Rings), Guy Norris (stunt co-ordinator, The Matrix) Toby Pease (1st ad superman, farscape) visiting Canberra one could be forgiven in thinking that this was a Hollywood blockbuster.
Resistance stars Nicholas Hope (bad Boy Bubby AFI winning best actor) and Canberra’s Bobby Farquhar. It is set for release in 2009.
Canberra s film industry is flourishing and Resistance will give Canberra yet another boost in elevating the Capital as a place to film.
