STOP PRESS! Acting Class of 1977 broadcasts Thursday 31st March at 2.00pm on SBS1.

TV documentary actingclassof1977.com AKA Acting Class of 1977 is framed as if the viewer is accessing the website of the Acting Class of 1977, a year that included Mel Gibson, Judy Davis, Steve Bisley, Debra Lawrance and Sally McKenzie.

With McKenzie, we click through a series of ‘web pages’ including ‘The Audition’, ‘1st Year’, ‘3rd Year’ and ‘Mel’s Interview’, to gain insights into the experiences of this stand-out year, the industry they entered and an actor-training method that psychologically denuded this tight-knit group to make them emotionally accessible.
