Beautiful - Interview with director Dean O’Flaherty and actress Peta Wilson

O’Flaherty quickly describes where he got the idea of a film that looks at neighbours watching neighbours. ‘Some is based on things from my childhood… like the girl at the window, but the central idea came from a sign on a bus stop after 9/11. One of the Government’s signs telling people to tell on their neighbours if they were doing anything suspicious… that was incredibly perverse to me.’

“54 Days is an Australian independent film of the survival/psychological thriller genre about five people trapped together in a bomb shelter without enough food and water after Sydney and other major cities have been nuclear bombed. The cast all had solid acting chomps which made for exciting interplay, and we had a particularly awesome crew. Our DoP Nat Jackson impressed me with his sheer creativity. He gave me a new understanding of how the cinematographer can be every bit as important as the director, actor, and editor in the story-telling process.”

“Sometimes it can be a concern where you need to say well no that’s not me, that’s my character. But it’s lovely.

So I storyboarded the kind of how I saw the blocking of certain things in my mind, but I couldn’t story board exactly, because we didn’t have locations, we didn’t have any of that, so quite often I had to throw the story boards out and start again. But with the opening with the cart wheeling, that was all exact to the storyboards.”
