ACS NSW July drop-in

Thursday 20th July 6pm

In conversation with

Bonnie Elliott ACS

Join us at HQ this month with special guest cinematographer, Bonnie Elliott ACS. Bonnie will be sharing production experiences from a number of her projects including the recently released psychological horror feature Run Rabbit Run starring Sarah Snook post her starring stint in Succession.
Variously described as sepulchral (gloomy, dismal, suggesting death - I had to look it up!), Australian Gothic, sweepingly foreboding, it will be fascinating to discuss the process Bonnie went through to define the distinctive look of this film. 
Bonnie will also discuss her work on Apple TV series Shining Girls, shot in Chicago, as well as her set-up cinematography for the new Elisabeth Moss series The Veil, just completed in Europe.

(dir: IVAN SEN, 2002)
"This minimal, spare film has an incredible beauty. Long-time collaborator of the director, Allan Collins ACS cinematography is stunning"

"Having seen quite a lot of Ivan Sen's previous work, I can understand how Beneath Clouds brings together the issues of a world he knows well. The question of aboriginality, the despair, the anger, the resentment, the confusion that goes with that identity in this country is explored with great compassion here. Both young performers, Danielle Hall and Damien Pitt are extraordinarily good in bringing these two wounded children to life. I think this is one of the great Australian films of recent years."
