This is the brilliant team that has come together to create Blue Mist. We have raised the final funds for our Post Production Team through our KICKSTARTER campaign. Your donations are going to help us raise awareness of hearing loss.
Our cast and crew of eight went to the Blue Mountains in July 2014. They battled the elements of -10c with hateful wind to create Blue Mist.
Hayley Sullivan & Ryan Carter are both graduates of the Actors Centre Australia (ACA). They are going to be HUGE stars and I got them first! Their commitment to BLUE MIST has been amazing. They created beautiful nuanced performances.
The delightful Susie Porter joined us on Day Three for half a day in Sydney before a skeleton cast and crew returned to the Blue Mountains for pick ups. Teri Dalton my fabulous make up artist caught a bus from Canberra to help us out. We have worked together on three films now! Thanks Teri 🙂
