Hear Me Out Geraldton – Episode 43 – Renier Beukes (Renegade Studios)
HMOG had great conversation with Renier Beukes of Renegade Studios. We discussed the studio’s beginnings and it’s future, but the main topic discussed was his current film project ‘Batavia’.
Synopsis: In June 1629 the VOC ship Batavia wrecked on a group of islands fifty miles off the coast of what is now Western Australia. The survivors made refuge on the islands and in the three months until their rescue one of the bloodiest massacres in history took place. Over 100 men, women, and children were murdered.
