Behind the lens
ACTRESS Rebecca Gibney has gone from working in front of the camera to behind it for Channel 7. Gibney appeared on six seasons of Packed to the Rafters as mother Julie Rafter on the highly popular Seven series, before the show ended in July. But now she is developing a telemovie for Seven and hopes the project will get off the ground before the end of the year. Gibney says the project is not about, or related to, Rafters. ‘‘I am working on a telemovie project for Seven which is a different show from Rafters,’’ Gibney says. ‘‘We hope to be shooting that by the end of the year and I will be co-producing it as well.’’ Gibney says she has been using her down time this year to take a well-earned break, after six seasons of Rafters and simultaneously working on films like Mental and I Am You.
