Channel 44’s own Clare Elvia has been appointed as an editorial attachment on Netflix’s biggest South Australian production to date, Desert King.
In June 2022, Clare joined our team as part of the First Nations Internship Program and has since been employed as a part-time editor, creating a really impressive portfolio of editing work on
- Antenna Award-nominated First Nations chat show Mob Talks
- science program Be Curious (coming soon!)
- the video of Rob Edwards performing We Shall Overcome for the Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese
- the South Australian Film Corporation’s (SAFC) First Nations film showreel (below), and
- a highlight reel of the gala celebrating the SAFC’s 50th anniversary
“I’m so stoked about my editorial attachment on Desert King. It’s a very exciting project and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to learn and expand my skills in post-production as well as gaining industry experience,” says Clare. “I’m eager to make the most out of this attachment and to see where it may lead me.”
“We are extremely proud to have been a stepping-stone on her pathway to working with one of the biggest streaming services in the world,” said Andrea Michaels MP, Minister for Arts.
“Attracting major international streaming platforms like Netflix to South Australia speaks volumes about the remarkable skill and creativity of our Adelaide Studios.”
Desert King is being produced by fellow SA creative Paul Ranford (True History of the Kelly Gang), created by Ben Davies and Tim Lee (Mystery Road), and directed by Greg McClean (Wolf Creek), and is projected to bring jobs to 240 South Australians across cast and crew.
The series follows the aftermath of the death of the owner of the world’s largest cattle station, the family fallout, and the external threats fighting for the power that comes with it.
