Tomorrow When The War Began

Last year I spent over 4 months working with a great crew on the Australian film Tomorrow When The War Began. Having been a fan of the book as a teenager, I was thrilled to be able to help bring it to the big screen. As a props buyer and set dresser, many weeks were spent scouring shops in Sydney and Newcastle for furniture and props (the beautiful and the everyday). I thought I would share a few of my sourcing photos with you - images like these with measurements and hire prices were printed and presented at the end of each day to my very talented Set Decorator, Beverley Dunn. The movie will be released on Thursday (very exciting). I hope you all have it pencilled in the diary.


  1. Hopefully we'll be able to check out this film when we're in Australia in December. Your job sounds fab!

  2. Already in my diary Briar. I know how much work you put into it and although a tad biased I think you should get the AFI award for set dressing (if there is one).

  3. Aw, thanks Neil, you are so sweet. I'm sure you guys will love it. Will let you know how I go with that AFI hehe. x

  4. What an amazing job you have ... I love Australian films, I don't think they the recognition they deserve, we will certainly pencil that one in !!!

  5. Hi Briar - I'm so excited to have discovered your blog... I'm an interior stylist about to pop a baby so I'll be living vicariously through the talented likes of you for a little while!


    PS - have added you to my blog roll so I can share you with all my lovely readers :)

  6. Hey wow, I worked with the lovely Bev in the early 90s!! Say hi from Margie Rahmann. What a small world... I was a props buyer in that life too - now I'm an Interior Designer on the south coast of NSW... Love your blog.


Thanks for comment or question, I love to read them.
