Photographer Matt Nettheim Talks About Working On “The Rover” & Shares A HQ Version Of The New “The Rover” Still

You may remember this still from the other day when we got our first look at “The Rover”.
Well now photographer Matt Nettheim has shared the HQ & untagged version and talks a bit about the challenges faced by the cast & crew working in the South Australian heat.HQ The Rover Stilll With Robert Pattinson & Guy Pearce

“Eventually work on the mainland beckoned so I loaded up my pushbike and trailer and headed back to Adelaide to join The Rover.  Writer director David Michod had hit the jackpot with his debut feature Animal Kingdom, produced Porchlight Pictures, a regular client over my career. His Animal Kingdom cast had enjoyed massive career boosts from the films local and international acclaim, and everyone was waiting to see what David would do next.  The production rolled into my hometown Adelaide, bringing with it actors Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, before heading off to shoot in the extremely remote and dangerously hot far north of South Australia.  The prospect of working in that environment  at this time of the year, with daily temperatures expected to be around 50 degrees, scared off many experienced local crew, but a brave crew was assembled and the film making road trip commenced.”

    I can take the heat….I wouldn’t have balked at the chance of being on set within 40 feet of Rob and Guy. What is a push bike? A bicycle or a motorcycle? I’m not up on all the different terms just yet. Thanks for this Kate! ;D

      A push bike to me has no pedals but I believe its another term for bicycle in Britain and Australia. These actors and the crew should be commended for taking this film to the outback at this time of year ,its not a luxury shoot. I’m really looking forward to this film.
