13CO's new director/DOP Gerard Lambkin ACS has just crafted 'Stand & Remember' for The RSL's Anzac Day 2020 commemorations, via 13CO’s sister company Cartel Film Production. Recently signed with 13CO for representation, Gerard shot the film under the current Covid-19 restrictions. Production took place over three days across various locations around greater Brisbane and the Gold Coast by Lambkin and Cartel's executive producer partner Damion Tiernan.
Lambkin says: “It's an honour to create this piece for the RSL given the significance of ANZAC day and these unprecedented times that we find ourselves in. Not only was it great to craft a culturally significant piece, but it was also a rewarding challenge to produce this film given the physical distancing restrictions in place. Being a hands on director and DOP meant that I could efficiently capture what we required and work independently on set”.
The film was shot with a lean crew, abiding by strict physical distancing guidelines. An on set nurse recorded everyone’s temperatures at the start and end of each day, and hygiene of equipment was maintained at all times. Elements of post production were handled remotely or with strict physical distancing in suites of adequate size.
Based in Brisbane, Lambkin's work combines memorable, natural talent performance and storytelling with a strong visual style. Executive producer Roy De Giorgio says: “It’s exciting to have Gerard on board. We’ve been dancing around each other for years. He’s a great collaborative film maker and his combined skills are well suited to the 13CO aesthetic”. Lambkin added: “I’m excited to be part of the 13CO family. Their work speaks for itself and it’s great to have their support during these every changing times”.
Lambkin has received numerous prestigious international awards including New York Festivals, Mobius, ACS and One Show One Screen. As a director and cinematographer, he has also been honoured with full accreditation as a Cinematographer by the Australia Cinematographers Society.
