ABC Television 2020

Northern Pictures head of factual Karina Holden has given Inside Film an update on upcoming ABC show, Big Weather (and how to survive it) hosted by Craig Reucassel.

Q: Your ABC doc Big Weather (and how to survive it), hosted by Craig Reucassel, co-produced with DMA Creative, wrapped on the weekend before the production shutdown. How’s it looking?

A: Another mighty responsibility. We certainly had a massive undertaking on our hands shooting over the summer of 2019/2020 with the worst fire season on record. With DMA Creative based in Queensland and Northern Pictures in NSW, we had an intense juggle negotiating crews onto the frontline and keeping everyone safe. It’s been a beast to wrangle through the edit as we try to find the learnings in the devastation and disaster. But Craig makes it supremely watchable and I believe the audience will strongly connect to the series when it comes out later this year.
