  • Production

    Cliff Green wrote the script for Peter Weir however he was busy on The Last Wave (1977) so Ken Hannam was hired instead. The budget was raised within three weeks from the Australian Film Commission, Greater Union, the Victorian Film Corporation (who put in $76,500) and private investors. These were essentially the same parties who invested in Break of Day (1976).

    Shooting took place at the town of Cowes on Philip Island and around Western Port Bay Victoria starting 14 February 1977.
