It took 12 years for Mad Max: Fury Road to travel from concept to epic reality. And its creation was dependent on the most unorthodox of methods: a storyboard made up of 3,500 panels provided the script. Find out exactly what happened when writer-director George Miller catches up with co-writer and illustrator Brendan McCarthy and co-writer and dramaturge Nico Lathouris for a chat — with each other and the public.
One of Graphic festival's headline events, Mad Max: Fury Road in conversation will take place in the Opera House Concert Hall on Sunday, October 11, at 1.45pm. It's a world premiere and Miller's only stage appearance in Australia during this visit. The trio will be discussing what inspired Mad Max's wasteland, and the challenges faced in getting their vision to screen, from overcoming major delays to a change of continents, as well as taking a look at unseen footage, designs and images.
