JULIA LEIGH had never been behind a camera before but that has not stopped her debut feature, Sleeping Beauty, being selected for competition at the Cannes Film Festival next month.
Nor had the Sydney author made so much as a short film. ”No, nothing at all. No Tropfest,” said Leigh, who has won literary prizes and nominations for her novels, The Hunter and Disquiet.
”I had to prove to a lot of people that I had a definite vision and I did an amazing amount of preparation. I read film scripts, went to an actors’ workshop and observed a friend on a TV set. I watched a lot of films that I loved with the sound turned down. I would ask myself, ‘Where is the camera?”’

Eltham is a long way away, and a world apart, from Los Angeles. No one knows that better than Emily Browning, the wide-eyed ingenue who divides her time between her home town and Hollywood.
‘‘It’s kind of a trip being in LA sometimes – you see people that have only ever been part of your world through television and movies,’’ Browning says. ‘‘But at the same time working with these kinds of people, you also become very aware that they’re just human beings.’’

Browning, 22, is perhaps Eltham’s most famous export. Her rise started when she landed her first role in the made-for-television film The Echo of Thunder, opposite Judy Davis in 1998. Following her successful debut, Browning went on to appear in Blue Heelers and the Billy Connolly-led film The Man Who Sued God in 2001. Her career was made in 2004’s Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, staring Jim Carrey.

The Eltham native still calls Melbourne home, despite a demanding international career, overseas travel and auditioning, filming and promoting her growing number of projects.
