Unique landscapes, stories create tourism showreel

The growing number of films produced in WA has created opportunities for local talent, employment and tourism.

The sweeping coastline and heaving swells of the state’s south will be showcased to the world later this year with the release of Breath, a screen adaptation of Tim Winton’s book of the same name.

Oscar-winning American producer Mark Johnson, known for movies Rain Man, The Notebook, and more recently the television series Breaking Bad, shot the feature film in and around coastal town Denmark last year, employing more than 150 locals as crew members, actors and surfing doubles.
