“This collection of essays explores the images and mythologies that have built up about Queensland.  Just how filmmakers, television programs and advertising have used and moulded these images is discussed by the filmmakers themselves and by historians and commentators.  The idiosyncrasies of Queensland are brought into focus through articles on filming in the tropics, the rise and fall of the state-run film corporation, and the trials of independent filmmaking.  This selection includes interviews with ad-man Dick Marks, film pioneer George Burne and animator Max Bannah, and the story of how Charles Chauvel made the epic Sons of Matthew in Queensland.  Illustrated with movie and television stills and posters, this book helps explain Queensland and its many images.”
