Earlier tonight I had the chance to interview Leon Ford actor, director, screenwriter and a published author on his latest project GRIFF THE INVISIBLE. Leon wrote and directed the film that stars Ryan Kwanten(True Blood) and Maeve Dermody(Beautiful Kate, Black Water). Its a wonderful story, you can check out Leith’s Review here. I talked to Leon on a number of subjects including Casting, Shooting in Sydney, How Griff Came about and also about his time on the HBO Hit ‘The Pacific’.
By day Griff (Ryan Kwanten) is an everyday office worker, in an everyday town. He lives a secluded life, bullied by co-workers (Toby Schmitz) – his protective brother his only friend. By night Griff assumes his other identity, roaming the dark streets protecting the innocent and the vulnerable from the dangers that lurk in the shadows – he is the hero, GRIFF THE INVISIBLE.
Increasingly concerned by Griff’s eccentric behaviour, his brother (Patrick Brammall) attempts to draw him back into the ‘real world’. In doing so he introduces Griff to Melody (Maeve Dermody) an equally eccentric and charming girl.
Fascinated by Griff’s idiosyncrasies, which are equal only to her own, Melody begins to fall for Griff. As Griff is forced to face up to realities of a mundane world, it is up to Melody to rescue GRIFF THE INVISIBLE for the sake of herself, Griff and their love for each other
