The Making of a Thriller in Scary Times: Netflix’s Clickbait

Join us for an in-conversation with Tony Ayres (BA Visual '85, BA '87) and Michael McMahon (LLB '82).

Hosted by Andrea Morris, Head of Advancement, ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences.

Tony and Michael served on the writing and executive production team of the international streaming hit, Clickbait, the number one show globally for Netflix in September 2021. Filmed in Melbourne between the multiple pandemic-related lockdowns last summer, the limited episode series is a cautionary tale for a modern and internet connected world: what is true, who is on the other side of the screen, and how do you know what to believe?

Join us to learn how they developed and produced the binge-worthy show during a scary and uncertain time in our recent history.

Spoiler alert: It is best to watch the series before our conversation with Tony and Michael!
