Stylish launch for new movie
For Canberra's freshest filmmaking
talent, the premiere of Locks of Love
was an industry night of nights.
Created by nearly 300 ACT film
practitioners, the anthology feature
film explores love in all its forms
through 11 short films linked by the
stories of padlocks on a gate.
Written, directed, filmed and
produced in Canberra, Locks of Love
was a two-year project produced by
Silversun Pictures and ScreenACT.
Cast and crew arrived at the sunset
launch in style, peeling out of
Canberra Vintage Car Club vehicles
and on to the red carpet which
stretched out in front of the National
Film and Sound Archive.
Canberra-based filmmaker and
former ScreenACT employee
Christian Doran said holding the
launch at such a historic national
cinematic landmark was fitting for a
motion picture that developed and
showcased the territory's talent.
"We tried to raise the bar with this,"
"The project was about building the
screen industry and making a high-
class professional shoot."
Having the film selected to screen at
the 2014 Canberra International Film
Festival was a mark of the work's
"I am really excited about all the
other festivals that it can go into later
on," he said.
Doran took time away from creating
Me & My Mates versus the Zombie
Apocalypse, due to release next year,
and produced a silent short film for the
line-up, directed another, and wrote
and directed the combining film that
linked all 11 stories.
"I looked at all the other films that
we had and found an emotional
through line from meeting the person
to marrying them, and everything in
between complemented," he said.
His silent film starring Lorraine
Bayly (The Sullivans) takes a cheeky
look at the challenges of dating in
one's later years. Doran said he hoped
a similar project would be offered in
future because Locks of Love offered
both new and experienced filmmakers
an insight into what a professional film
"This process gave everyone an
understanding of the benefits of
professional resources and the realities
of oversight by executive producers,"
"It was designed to be a training
group but everyone has stepped up to
the plate and the result is something
Canberra can enjoy and be proud of."
