NSW secures another blockbuster series with Amazon Prime Video, starring Sigourney Weaver
NSW continues to lead Australia in attracting major film productions, jobs, and screen investment to the State, with the Amazon series The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart secured through the NSW Government’s Made in NSW fund.
Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said the seven-part series starring Sigourney Weaver and produced by Made Up Stories, Amazon Studios and Endeavour Content, Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, has begun filming in NSW.
“Attracting Amazon Prime Video’s The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart with Sigourney Weaver to film in NSW is a significant win for the state, creating 277 jobs for NSW cast and crew and injecting over $27.3 million into the local economy,” Mr Harwin said.
“The series will be filmed predominantly in regional NSW, where the economic benefits will flow, with work for trades, hospitality, catering, transport, crew and other production services.
“The NSW Government through Screen NSW has continued to work closely with the screen industry to ensure production could safely continue throughout the pandemic and we are delighted to have secured The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart for the state through our $175 million Made in NSW fund.”
“More than 90 screen productions have begun filming in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic, supporting more than 10,000 jobs.”
Major feature films and drama series recently in production or post-production in NSW with support from the NSW Government include Arclight Films and Russell Crowe’s Poker Face, Made Up Stories’ Pieces of Her with Toni Colette for Netflix, Made Up Stories’ Wolf Like Me with Josh Gad and Isla Fisher, Marvel’s latest box office hit, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Thor: Love and Thunder with Chris Hemsworth, George Miller’s 3,000 Years of Longing with Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, Netflix’s Interceptor with Elsa Pataky, Goalpost Picture’s Carmen with Paul Mescal and Rossy de Palma, and Made up Stories’ Roar for Apple + with Nicole Kidman.
