Deadlock: behind the scenes

Writer/director Billie Pleffer shares her experience creating Deadlock, the new youth-focused series for ABC iview.

Pleffer shares how she wanted this series to cut through to the “Netflix generation”, how she was inspired by YouTube sensations Danny and Michael Philippou (aka The RackaRacka) and how she worked with cinematographer James L Brown to craft a unique visual style for the series.

Produced by Every Cloud Productions, Deadlock was developed through their Script Lab Workshop with Skins co-creator/co-writer Bryan Elsley. The Lab was developed and funded by Screen Australia's Enterprise Stories Program, in partnership with Northern Rivers Screenworks.

Deadlock launches on ABC iview on 20 July 2018.
