Filmmaker interviews: George Miller
Mad Max 2 (1981) was filmed in around the areas of Broken Hill and Silverton. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) was slated to be filmed in the Broken Hill area as well but the production was moved to Namibia after unusual rainfall saw the normally barren landscape bloom into life - not a great look for a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Mad Max franchise director George Miller talks with Paul Byrnes about his early career in Australia: from the 'experimental’ Mad Max (1979) and its blockbuster sequels, to his pivotal role in the golden age of the mini-series with The Dismissal (1983) and Bodyline (1984). He also touches on his first forays into Hollywood and conveys his continuing passion for telling Australian stories.
