The Whistleblower filming returns to Geelong on Thursday for some major action scenes, including a car flip, truck crash and off-road pursuit.
The second round of filming will feature stunt actors, including stunt co-ordinator Warwick Sadler who lives in Torquay. Filming in Geelong will occur daily (except for Sunday) until Friday 21 September.
There will be plenty of opportunities for people to watch the stunt scenes being filmed for the largest Australian Chinese partnered film project ever produced.
A number of Geelong streets will be used for the filming so there will be some changed traffic conditions on Corio, Bellarine, Swanston and Fitzroy Streets as well as Alexandra Avenue and Pevensey Crescent. Please allow a little extra travel time.
The Whistleblower is expected to inject more than $40 million in Victoria’s economy, plus create more than 200 job opportunities for local screen workers.
Cr Bruce Harwood - Mayor:
This second round of filming is all about the stunt scenes. Locals will be able to watch some impressive action sequences over the next week.
Keep an eye out for the movie’s crane - it will give you a good idea of where the action is unfolding.
This is an exciting opportunity for us to promote our clever and creative city as a filmmaking destination, and to open ourselves further to the arts and culture world.
