The Nest 3D set for Queensland
Dangerous spiders buried for 2,000 years will come to life in The Nest 3D, the latest international co-production to shoot in Queensland.
Queensland Premier and Arts Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Arclight Films feature is due to start filming in October at Village Roadshow Studios and on location in South East Queensland.
“The Nest 3D will spend more than $10 million in Queensland on physical production and will employ 150 Queenslanders,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
The Premier said the filmmakers were drawn to Queensland because of the state’s growing reputation for excellence in filmmaking, the Village Roadshow Studios and excellent post-production capabilities.
“Queensland’s world-class crew, facilities and diverse locations, along with our technical expertise are gaining respect both here at home and internationally,” she said.
The Nest 3D, written and to be directed by Kimble Rendall, begins with the discovery of a mummified Chinese Emperor.
Rendall worked in Queensland as the director of Bait 3D which was Australia’s most commercially successful film in 2012 and broke B.O. records in China for an independent film.
Screen Queensland CEO Tracey Vieira said The Nest 3D would continue to build the Queensland industry. “The Nest 3D will also provide skills development for four Queensland film practitioners, giving them a big step forward in their career development,” Ms Vieira said.
