If you’re in Sydney this October, we’ve got an experience for you! In a world premiere appearance, Mad Max creator George Miller, along with co-writer and illustrator Brendan McCarthy and dramaturge Nico Lathouris, is sitting down at the Sydney Opera House Graphic Festival to give us a rare behind-the-scenes look into the unseen footage, designs and imagery that illustrate the incredible efforts that went into the Mad Max franchise.
This is a franchise where every character has a backstory, unique costume and vehicle, and where Fury Road’s script and blueprint was created through 3,500 graphic novel style storyboard panels. That’s right, 3,500!
Over the course of 90 minutes, attendees will be taken through Fury Road’s twelve-year journey from the storyboard to the screen to find out just what goes into creating a thrilling Hollywood blockbuster. There will also be a Q+A session following the discussion, so you can talk one-on-one with the Mad Max creators and ask those questions that have been swimming around your head for years.
This will be Academy Award-winning writer-director George Miller’s only Aussie stage appearance at GRAPHIC, so you’ll want to get in early and grab your tickets before they sell out.
Mad Max: Fury Road – Creating The Apocalypse will take place at 1:45pm October 11 at the Sydney Opera House as part of the 2015 Graphic Festival. Get your tickets here!
