FILM­ING A NEW SE­RIES

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - FRONT PAGE - An­nie Caughey An­[email protected]­news.com.au

GOLDEN Beach will be the fo­cal point of a new web se­ries to be filmed over the next week by renowned Coast di­rec­tor Tam Sains­bury.

Time and Place fol­lows the story of a big-shot mag­a­zine writer who re­turns to her hum­ble roots af­ter spend­ing var­i­ous years liv­ing over­seas.

Delv­ing into the lives of dif­fer­ent fam­ily mem­bers, the comedic drama has been com­pared to se­ries such as Packed to the Rafters and Off­spring.

Filmed and based in Caloun­dra and at nearby hot-spots in­clud­ing Kings Beach, Pu­mice­s­tone Pas­sage and Dicky Beach, Mrs Sains­bury said she wanted to por­tray the area in its true and nat­u­ral light.

“It’s a beau­ti­ful area, I want to try and do what

Home and Away has done for Palm Beach, it would be re­ally great to put this area on the map,” she said.

“In­stead of mak­ing up a fic­ti­tious town name I’ve ac­tu­ally just used a real one to show­case the Sun­shine Coast to the world be­cause be­ing a web se­ries it can be watched any­where.”

In writ­ing the script, Mrs Sains­bury said she drew in­spi­ra­tion from sur­round­ing res­i­dents and busi­nesses.

“There is a char­ac­ter who man­ages the lo­cal surf club and I al­ways imag­ined that to be the Caloun­dra Powerboat Club,” she said.

The se­ries reels in some A-list ac­tors such as Lara Cox, Tracy Mann and Lisa Kay who have pre­vi­ously worked on pro­duc­tions

in­clud­ing All Saints, Home and Away and Brid­get Jones Di­aries.

“Af­ter a pre­vi­ous fea­ture film I did with Lara Cox I al­ways imag­ined her for the role of Re­becca and I wrote the script ac­cord­ingly,” Mrs Sains­bury said.

Of 17 cast mem­bers, 12 are from the Coast re­gion. The di­rec­tor also made an ef­fort to in­clude nearby res­i­dents in the film­ing as ex­tras.
