Filming commences on Goober
13 May 2016
Filming starts on Goober today (May 13), the first of five new South Australian projects being produced through the joint $500,000 SAFC/ABC TV LABS iview originals initiative.
Goober tells the story of Harry, an Uber driver, who lies somewhere on the autism spectrum and can’t hold down any other job, but wants to make friends and a bit of money. Harry is eternally optimistic – especially about his love for Wendy, the girl from his favourite drive-thru restaurant. Harry spends his life trying to turn passengers into friends, and Wendy into his girlfriend.
The series of 6 x 5 minute episodes features a South Australian cast and crew along with acclaimed Australian actor Shane Jacobson (Kenny, The Dressmaker) providing the voice of Harry’s Dad.
Goober is a collaborative project between Producer Kirsty Stark (A Month of Sundays, Wastelander Panda), Writer Ben Crisp and Directors Simon Williams and Brendon Skinner.
