The Pitch has been filming in Bogee in recent weeks, and the cast and crew have been 'wowed' by the region.

Rylstone and Bogee have turned into the region’s very own Hollywood as it hosts ‘The Pitch’, a movie staring Andy McPhee, of Wolf Creek and Animal Kingdom fame.

The movie has added more star power to its cast in the past few weeks, as Benita Collings has signed on for the remainder of the shoot.

Well known for her long stint as the Play School host on ABC television, Benita has also had big roles in movies like Knowing alongside Nicholas Cage, and more recently on the ABC series Janet King.

Although Benita has been added to the cast, she won’t be attending the Rylstone and Bogee sets of the film, instead primarily filming her scenes in the Sydney based sets, and may not have a major role once the main characters leave for their ‘adventure’.

On the Bogee set local business Oliveatwist, owned by Rebecca Sutton, has been the caterer for the cast and crew, who previously stated that they were looking to support local business owners by selecting a Rylstone or Bogee caterer.

According to film coordinator Sallyanne Ryan the cast and crew have also been taking time to enjoy the surrounding area, and enjoying the beautiful vistas that the region has to offer.
