Around the Block

By July 18, 2012 Congratulations

Metro Screen Production Management Alumni Mim Davis has just wrapped on Around The Block, an Australian/US financed feature film, starring Christina Ricci, (Sleepy Hollow, Monster, The Opposite of Sex) and Matthew Nable (Killer Elite, Bikie Wars, 33 Postcards). The film is set in a high school in Redfern and follows a young Aboriginal boy through a story of love, revenge and triumph, as he grapples with the conflicting pressures of his new found love of acting, and the breakdown of his family. The film is Directed by Sarah Spillane and Produced by Brian Rosen and Su Armstrong, and will be released in Australia next year. This was Mim’s first feature as Production Manager since completing the Production Management course at Metro Screen. Mim has Coordinated, Production Managed and Produced several successful shorts and music videos.

Mim said ‘Completing the short course in Production Management at Metro Screen gave me the necessary practical skills to move forward in my career.  We covered all the fundamentals of managing a production, and putting together a short film budget, and production paperwork in the way that people expect this to be presented professionally in the industry. The tutor, Heather Oxenham, was incredibly generous with her expertise and it was fantastic to be able to bounce ideas and questions around with her and the rest of the group in a classroom environment.  The course gave me the confidence and practical ability to move into production managing shorts and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in this area of filmmaking.’

Metro Screen will be running a short course in Production Management from the 6th August 2021. For more info click here:
