THE BALI PROJECT
4 x 1hr drama series

Producers: Andy Ryan/Michael Healy – STAN and 9 with Kerrie Mainwaring at Screentime
Director: Peter Andrikidis

The bombing of Bali was, without doubt, an event that sent shockwaves and heartbreak through Australia and around the world. But it also created stories of survival, courage, and hope. The number one priority is to do justice to this event, its survivors and the countries who were so deeply affected, paying very close attention to the cultural and emotional diversity of those experiences. With the collaboration of Indonesian Australian director Katrina Irawati Graham, Balinese Story Editor Ketut Yuliarsa and Nusa Tenggara Timur writer Michael Toisuta, all characters will be mined for depth, specificity, and authenticity. Special attention will be paid to ensure the series is culturally, linguistically, and idiomatically correct. The spiritual essence of Bali is a huge component of the series, inspiring our shooting style and sound design. The tone of the series will be very naturalistic. Actors' performances should be truthful and in no way stylised. Authentic performances are a must, and we aim to work with both actors and non- actors in order to bring an authentic audience experience to the screen. Great performances are the essence of any great film or series, for both the small and large screen. This is especially true when dealing with an international trauma on this scale. Each of the four episodes will have a different central character and this will define the ‘point of view’. Most importantly, we will follow this character closely and remain in his or her consciousness.

Actors MUST be able to speak BAHASA (Indonesian) and would love to know if you speak any Balinese dialects
