BABE

Babe is a 1995 American film directed by Chris Noonan. It is an adaptation of the 1983 novel The Sheep-Pig, also known as Babe: The Gallant Pig in the United States, by Dick King-Smith and tells the story of a pig who wants to be a sheepdog. The main animal characters are played by a combination of real and animatronic pigs and Border Collies.

Babe was filmed in Robertson, New South Wales, Australia. The talking-animal visual effects were done by Rhythm & Hues Studios. Although the setting and style of the film are distinctly British/Australasian pastoral, many of the human speaking parts were overdubbed from Australian to American accents for popular acceptance in the American film market.

IT ALL STARTED AFTER… an Artist in Residence, Dave Houston, had the brilliant idea to project his short film about Quambatook locals onto silo’s in 2014. The audience were amazed at how un-distorted and clear the images were and this got us thinking how it could be a regular event to keep us locals entertained.
