Set to Screen Australia Podcasts Begin


Twentieth Century Fox, and renowned filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, the Oscar-nominated director of Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet, are collaborating on a special series of 10 podcasts that will follow the making of the epic film Australia, on which Luhrmann is writer, producer and director.

The “Set to Screen Series with Baz Luhrmann,” launching today on the iTunes Store, is designed to educate and inspire high school and college filmmakers, taking them behind the scenes of Australia, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman – and inside the creative process of Luhrmann and his production team.

Every few weeks through October, aspiring filmmakers can explore the film’s on-set photography, costume design, cinematography, scoring, editing, and more. In addition, students inspired by what they’ve learned from the podcasts will be invited to create and share their own film projects for a chance to join Luhrmann on the film’s promotional tour and have their project included in Australia‘s DVD release as well as other rewards.
