ACMI main cinema, Federation Square, Melbourne 2006
director/writer/composer – Richard Franklin
music director – Andy Baylor
visual designer – John Foss, Tim Brown
company – Chambermade Opera
My role – sound design/operator
Richard Franklins indigenous perspective on Nicholas Roeg’s film Walkabout, was the first theatre production to be staged in ACMI’s main cinema, for my sound design I had full access to the surround dolby system enabling a cinematic quality to the design. It was also a great opportunity to hear the atmospheric I had just collected on the Nabarlek tour through central Australia.
