Behind the scenes of 'The Games'

Take a step back in time and discover how the 1998 comedy series The Games (starring the late great John Clarke) became one of the world’s first mockumentaries – and a smash hit for the ABC.


In Friday's #RunningFreeSkills we'll take you behind the scenes with director Bruce Permezel, director of photography Jenni Meaney and editor Wayne Hyett - the original production team of the first series to talk about the genesis of a comedy classic.


See the full session on ACMI’s YouTube Channel here.

It goes live on Friday 26 June at 10am AEST.
