LiSTNR journalist Madeline Palmer said.
There’s just such an incredible work ethic here. I think the enthusiasm, especially since we haven’t shot a lot of films here for a few years now, international films this size, there’s a different energy.”
Palmer said Sydney’s film industry had a rich history since the release of “The Story of the Kelly Gang” in 1906, often considered the world’s first feature-length narrative film.
Over the years, iconic films like “Mad Max,” “Crocodile Dundee,” “Moulin Rouge,” “The Matrix” series, and “The Great Gatsby” were filmed in different locations across the city.
