They say it’s ‘who you know’ in this business and I’ll be honest, I got my first break because of my mother’s connections in the industry. The medical industry, that is. My mother was a nurse educator featured in a training video and when she heard the director remark that they would need a couple of actors she quickly piped up that her daughter was an actor and could she try out? (I’ve always adored my mother for her encouragement, particularly since she had sat through enough of my turgid university plays to warrant her encouraging me in anything but acting.) Very fortunately, the director didn’t feel they needed a ‘name’ actor to fill the role of Nurse 2, so I found myself suddenly, dizzyingly, in my first professional job. I was thrilled; not only did I learn how to correctly flush out a bedpan, but also, doing the gig earned me the right to join Equity.
In this special, one-off show, famously funny friends of St Kilda Primary School reveal the contents of their own school reports.
We started filming our new show this week with a cracking lead cast (pictured above).
Filming started yesterday. Ridiculously excited. Six weeks of chicken or the beef for lunch. Here's the official press release that went out.
So, we have been holed up in an edit suite for an unnatural amount of time and are very pleased to let you know, we are now putting the finishing touches on our new comedy series, Little Lunch. We’ve been describing it to people as The Office in the playground. It’s a Mockumentary with six really funny and talented kids and one adult, the hilarious Heidi Arena, who played Dawn in our series The Librarians and who will also be seen in our film, Now Add Honey, due later this year (yeah, we really like her).
More exciting news. Our Little Lunch special The Nightmare Before Graduation has just won the 2017 Japan Prize for best primary series! Here is everyone’s favourite teacher ‘Mrs Gonsha’ (Heidi Arena) accepting the prize in Tokyo. As always, a big thank you to the ACTF for championing the show around the world.
Hats off to the Little Lunch team! We are very excited to announce that we have been nominated for an AACTA award for 'Best Children's Television Series'.
