Outland is a new comedy series for broadcast on the ABC in 2011 and already being called “the best gay and lesbian science fiction fan club themed comedy series ever.” By us. Just then. And you can be part of it!
Outland is based on the only short film to play both the Melbourne Queer Film Festival and the World Science Fiction Convention. It stars Christine Anu, Ben Gerrard , Paul Ireland, Adam Richard, Toby Truslove, is written by John Richards (Boxcutters) and Adam Richard, directed by Kevin Carlin (Newstopia, BoyTown, The Extra) and produced by Princess Pictures (Summer Heights High, We Can Be Heroes, John Safran’s Race Relations, I Love You Too).
Outland needs volunteers to create a gay pride rally in St Kilda. You’ll be part of the final episode of Outland, so warning – spoilers!
Date: Friday 26 November 2010
Place: Catani Gardens
Between Beaconsfield Parade and Fitzroy Street, St Kilda
(You know, the one the Secret Life Of Us people were always playing soccer in).
Tram 96 or 16
Time: from 8 am (it’s an all day shoot and filming will begin early)
BUT please NO science fiction character costumes or the colour PURPLE (unless it’s part of the rainbow).
You don’t need to dress up to come along, but feel free to be awesome.
Bring: Flags, banners and colourful stuff.
Picnic food, games, friends, family and pets.
(NO alcohol because it’s a public park.)
Or RSVP on Facebook. The invitation is on the ABC TV wall or under the Events tab.
Or just come along.
As filming TV isn’t always as fun as watching TV, there will be some slow times when the gorgeous crowd isn’t needed. So picnics, games and friends will make the non-filming times fun. You’ll also be able to do some star spotting and see how a TV show is made.
Please feel free send this information to your friends. The bigger the crowd, the more fabulous it’ll be.
