LOCKIE LEONARD – THE HITS KIDS TV SERIES – OFFERS VIEWERS THE

CHANCE ‘TO CRASH THE CREDITS’


The hit tv series Lockie Leonard is offering one of the most exciting competitions ever for

young television viewers – ‘Crash The Credits’.


Fans of the show are urged to grab a camera, film themselves (and their friends) singing the

theme song from the series and upload it to their MySpace profile (or via ninemsn and

facebook). 


The best videos will then be incorporated into the show’s final credits over the coming

weeks.


Lockie Leonard producers Goalpost Pictures Australia and digital agency Tequila have

created a series of online experiences for Lockie Leonard fans, including competitions,

storyline linked webisodes, video podcasts and downloadables. 


New video content is being rolled out each week, with over 75 minutes of original content

created specifically for online.


Based on the much loved Tim Winton books, sun, surf, healthy young people, romance, lots

of laughs, intelligent writing and a unique fresh central character are what make Lockie

Leonard so special.


Series 1 and 2 were shot in Albany, on the beautiful south coast of Western Australia. Tim

Winton had set the books here (under the fictional name of Angelus).


Series Two follows

Lockie’s next adventures, as he navigates young love, his loving but

definitely odd family, his attempts to reach for the stars, and the occasionally intense

experiences of being a young teenager.


The performances of the young cast in Series One created rising star success stories. Sean

Keenan who plays Lockie, was nominated for Outstanding New Talent at the 2007 LOGIE

Awards. Corey McKernan (Phillip) was nominated for Best Young Actor at the AFI Awards

and Clarence Ryan (Egg) starred in the independent Australian feature film, September, for

which he was nominated for an AFI Award.

Further awards collected both nationally and internationally include the TV Week LOGIE

Award for Outstanding Children’s Series and AFI (Australian Film Institute) and ATOM

(Australian Teachers of Media) Awards for Best Children’s Series. The show received a

nomination for a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award for

International Children’s Series; AFI Award nominations for Best Director and Best

Screenplay; and second prize at the Chicago International Children’s Festival for the Adult

Jury Prize Live-Action Television Program.


Lockie Leonard is currently screening on the Nine Network at  12 noon every Saturday.
