Danger Close: behind the scenes

Production designer Sam Hobbs reveals how he created 1960s Vietnam in Australia for Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan.

Hobbs says some of the key challenges included creating rubber plantations and putting together an artillery battery full of blank firing howitzers.

He also describes the responsibility he felt in creating a war film that accurately and delicately represented the conflict.

Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan releases in cinemas on 8 August 2019.
