BLAME Feature Film

There has been some exciting developments over the last few weeks that have led me down the path of researching the property where I am currently living. It turns out that a feature film called “BLAME” was recently filmed on the property.

For anyone who as visited me at the property you might recognise a few things in some of the clips below!

The film stars Damian de Montemas (The Secret Life of Us, Underbelly: Tale of Two Cities), Sophie Lowe (Beautiful Kate, Blessed), Kestie Morassi (Wolf Creek, Dirty Deeds), Simon Stone (Jindabyne, Balibo), Mark Winter (Balibo, HBO’s The Pacific), Ashley Zukerman (Ch 10’s Rush and HBO’s The Pacific). Directed by Michael John Henry (Without a Sound).

Seeking retribution for a past crime, a group of young friends invade a man’s home and set out to fake his suicide. When their plan is bungled secrets and lies are exposed that force the group to question each other’s motives.  –

Here are a few links about the film.

    Wow! That is so cool!! Hopefully we can get one more trip in before you go coz that preview puts a whole new light on the photographic fun you can have in that house! Loving the long views down the hallway with the random wall-posing of the various characters and the light was just … awesome :P hehe

    Leigh, happy you found the clips.. The film was actually showed at the Armadale Film Festival last week .. the whole cast loved the house and the director thought he had hit the jackpot when he got access to use it. Definitely a great house to shoot a film in.

    Editor –

    • Its a shame I missed the filming Darran. From what I have seen the quality is second to none. Well done on the edit. I think I might have to buy a copy of the film.
      The magpies still come every day!
      Thanks for stopping by the blog and leaving a comment.

  8. Hi Leigh.
    I produced BLAME and would be happy to talk to you about any aspects of the production including the photography. We enjoyed filming on the property very much albeit during Perth’s hottest summer in a century. The house could use some ducted air con…wow it was hot.
    The property was exactly what the director and i had in mind when writing the screenplay. It really had to speak of Bernard’s character and psychology. We had our 2nd AD living at the house during production to provide security and he adored it.

      The olive tree gets a little noisy creaking against the house sometimes. haha. I was staying with Leigh last weekend, it’s an amazing property, and regularly becomes a photographers hang out.
      We were trying to work out where the scenes with the tool shed were filmed as that shed isn’t on the property. Was it perhaps on a neighbouring block?
      Also the scene where they are driving across the dam/bridge road, we assumed it was the Canning dam, but after a drive out there to have a look, it doesn’t appear to be.
      Any insight into the film is greatly appreciated. I really enjoyed watching it.
