Ready For This - Live Q&A Panel at ACMI

Actors Madeline Madden and Aaron McGrath, and screenwriter Liz Doran joined the ACTF's Peter Maggs for a Q&A with a studio audience at the 2016 Screen Futures Summit and Youth Media Festival in July. 

The session is now available to watch on the ACTF's YouTube Channel (OzKidsTV). 

The panel explores the origins of Ready For This - a joint venture between Blackfella Films and Werner Film Productions - from the development and writing process through to production.

This is a valuable glimpse behind the scenes for aspiring screen writers, as well as media students and fans of Ready For This.
