In January, Community Northern Beaches played host for two weeks of filming for a new Australian movie drama to be titled “Unsound”. After an exhaustive search for a suitable location, our building, and in particular the Heritage Hall, was the set for ‘The Deaf Club’, the centrepiece of the drama.
‘Unsound’ follows the journey of a disillusioned musician whose romantic spark is ignited by a young trans man as they work together to save his community nightclub for the deaf.
‘Unsound’ stars British actor Reece Noi, and a who’s who of the Australian film and music industry including Christine Anu, Todd McKenney, Paula Duncan and Yiana Pandelis. It was directed by one of Australia’s premier directors of film and television; Ian Watson.
The whole filming process was incredibly smooth and offered staff, volunteers and clients a great insight into the energy and effort that goes into the making of a film.
