Filmmaker Rob Sarkies

From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 23 October 2016

Rob Sarkies directed Into the Blue about the Aramoana tragedy, the telemovie The Louise Nicholas Story about a woman fighting for justice, and most recently Jean - a biopic about the aviatrix Jean Batten.

Acting aside, it takes an astute writer and director to know what to leave in, what to leave out, and how to structure a story.

How much deviation can there be from what really happened before it's more fiction than fact.

But if license isn't taken, do you risk ending up with a film that's plain boring in between the juicy bits?

Director Rob Sarkies has shown us time and again how to navigate through all these curly issues.
