Remondis Stadium was transformed into a film set on both Wednesday and Thursday night this week scenes were shot for Baby Boy, a short film with a rugby league theme.
A movie with an anti-bullying message and a storyline of a disadvantaged youngster given an opportunity to change his life through rugby league, Baby Boy is being directed by Jackson Mullane, an acclaimed film maker with impressive credits.
Jackson, son of former Shark Greg Mullane, has enjoyed previous success with his film-making ventures, including a second place finish with his production Red Nuts at the Tropfest Film Festival, with Baby Boy to be entered into a number of short film festivals upon completion.
Baby Boy includes a cameo from Sharks skipper Paul Gallen and the club’s Elite Development Coach John Morris, along with former NRL star-turned actor Ian Roberts who has been cast in one of the leading roles.
And Sharks fans attending the game against Manly on Father’s Day can also be a part of Baby Boy, with game day at Remondis to be used to shoot further scenes in the movie, meaning everyone at the ground can be an extra.
Sharks TV caught up with the Mullane’s, to talk football and his memories of days past with dad Greg and about Baby Boy and aspects of the film with Jackson.
