After working for two years on FremantleMedia’s daily drama Neighbours, it’s sad to finally say goodbye. It was a pleasure to work alongside Richard Jasek, Jason Herbison, Alan Hardy, Sue Wild, Lesley Lewis, Jo Porter, Claire Tonkin (Network Ten) and Greg Barnett (Channel Five) as well as, of course, the fantastic cast and crew.
I learnt heaps about the pressures of working in a fast paced TV environment, turning around 6 half-hour shows a week, 40 weeks a year. It was really cool to be part of the regular story planning conferences, and see how the stories that were developed were then produced in the coming months. I loved being plugged into the daily ratings for the show, as well as being across the Australian TV landscape as a whole.
Here’s a clip from one of the most exciting storylines produced during my time on the show.
