A director and a cinematographer will be in the city next week and are looking for local stories to capture.

Sydney-based director, Madeleine Mytkowski and Melbourne-based cinematographer David McKinnar are looking to make a film in Broken Hill, based on real lives and stories in the town.

They want to get in touch with locals who have a story to tell.

“We wanted to make something different to where we live,” she said.

“We want local stories with real people, places and lives.

“For me, I love that blend of documentary and fiction, so hopefully we can have a hybrid of that.

“I feel we will be less restricted in our work.

“But with the changes in the world, I think we will have so many different things to think about.”

Madeleine said she and David had no preconceived ideas on the stories they wanted.

“We want people to tell us their stories.

“So if you know someone or you have a story please get in contact with us.”

The pair will be in the city from February 23 - March 3.

“We want to film all around the area; Silverton, National Parks.

“If people have good recommendations we would love that as well.”

Madeleine said she wasn’t sure of their plans on the end product of the film.

“It depends on what it turns out being, but we definitely want to show it to people.

“We want to be able to put it in festivals and if we get some really good stories it might turn out bigger.

“We might develop more of a script and turn it into something.”

Madeleine is encouraging people to get in contact with them and to send photos or images of what they might like to talk about.
