As Dev Patel’s directorial debut Monkey Man breaks the $10 million mark in the US box office following its US premiere in Los Angeles last week, the SAFC is delighted to highlight and celebrate the many South Australian connections to the film as a showcase of local screen sector talent.

SA screen creative Tilda Cobham Hervey is co-producer on the film, with SA PDV company Artisan Post Group (APG) providing post-sound and VFX services, working from the SAFC’s Adelaide Studios production facilities and innovation hub Lot Fourteen.

SA practitioner Jack Smith was Associate Editor, working closely with Dev Patel from Adelaide, London and Los Angeles, with SA creatives Cleland JonesRegg Swarko and Dave Birrell also contributing to the production.

“The project was highly complex, with teams working across Canada, US and South Australia,” Anton Andreacchio said.
