Fox Studios comes out of hibernation as the bustling screen hub we want to see

A few months back I visited Fox Studios in Sydney to view the filming of a commercial for Earth Hour.

The main thing that struck me (apart from the massively rude security guy on the gate) was how depressingly empty most of the place was.

It was desolate. It had the atmosphere of a business district on a Sunday afternoon rather than the film hub of one of the world’s great cities.

Today though, the feeling is very different.  

Board room showdowns being filmed for The Celebrity Apprentice, Mel B et al bustling around for The X Factor, Paradise Lost gearing up and, of course, the massive undertaking that is The Great Gatsby.

Right now Sydney is a screen city. Long may it last.
