FamilyRules_BLOG.jpgA six part observational documentary series coming up on NITV in January has taken Perth post-production house Sandbox into the world of series TV.

Produced by Perth-based Metamorflix, Family Rules is described as an up close and personal observational documentary series giving an exclusive insight into modern Indigenous family life through the eyes of nine sisters and their mother.

Sandbox has undertaken the entire post-production of sound and vision for the series, which comprises six half-hour episodes. Sandbox covered off aspects of the production including the title sequence, dialogue edit, dialogue mix, track lay including ambiance and foley, sound mix, grade, online and deliverables.
Metamorflix director Renee Kennedy and executive producer of Family Rules, was extremely complimentary about the Sandbox team and how they went "above and beyond" on the job.
Sandbox managing director Grady Habib says his team loved working on projects "where we have the luxury of longer screen time for the story to evolve".

Since 2012 the company has undertaken several feature films and other longer form projects. Habib said Family Rules was also in-tune with the company's philosophy about the work they do having an influence on society.

"Not only are we sharing genuine stories which explore themes of indigenous culture in contemporary life, but also seeing these young women connecting with their heritage. The capturing of these stories is a real credit to Metamorflix and NITV."

Family Rules is on at 7.30pm on NITV (Channel 34 and Foxtel 144) on January 9, 10, 11 and January 16, 17 and 18.

The first episode is available now on SBS OnDemand.
