'KILLING GROUND' US RELEASE JULY 21ST
  10 June 2017

So excited to announce that Killing Ground will be released in theatres and on demand on July 21st! Along with this announcement comes the new trailer which will "have you vowing never to go camping again!" Variety called it "Harrowing. A white-knuckle thriller" while the The Hollywood Reporter raved "Chilling. The simmering tension explodes into full-blown hell." Not bad coming from two of the worlds most respected entertainment organisations. Australia's answer to Deliverance, this is one intense ride you don't want to miss.

FILMINK: WAKE IN SUNDANCE
  29 JANUARY 2017

Christine Westwood from FilmInk sat down with writer/director Damien Power, Maya Stange and myself to discuss the ins and outs of making an 'edge of your seat' survival thriller... "We caught up with Killing Ground writer/director Damien Power and actor Aaron Glenane in Park City, Utah on the eve of the film’s international debut and being picked up for US distribution by genre specialist IFC Midnight. The Midnight section at the Sundance Film Festival is designed to showcase movies that don’t fit neatly into genre categories and are provoking, ‘edge of your seat’ fare for audiences. Australian writer/director Damien Power was selected for his crafted and disturbing survival thriller/horror Killing Ground."

It's finally arrived...IndieWire has just dropped the Killing Ground trailer ahead of it's International Premiere at Sundance Film Festival tomorrow night. Can't wait to hear what you guys think!

The film also co-stars Aaron Pedersen (“Water Rats”) and Aaron Glenane (“Truth”). Watch an exclusive trailer for the film below.

FIRST REVIEWS ARE IN 'KILLING GROUND'
  AUGUST 18 2016

After our World Premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival Killing Ground's first reviews are in and damn has it had a flattering reception. I'm thrilled to be a part of Damien Power's thrilling concoction and I can't wait for it to be released nation wide in early 2017. Strap in!

"Glenane (the) less than predictable partner comes away with some of Killing Ground's most memorable scenes; among them a despicable game of William Tell featuring his character's recurring, frightening bark." "A clever, captivating Aussie shocker." – Falken Screen

"Damien Power's brutal bushland nerve-shredder Killing Ground can rightfully sit alongside such dark kindred spirits as Wolf Creek and The Long Weekend in the annals of Aussie genre infamy. Bolstered by revelatory star turns from Aaron Pedersen and Aaron Glenane as the latest ute-drivin', pig-shootin' incarnations of the Australian male's primal, predatory id, Power's skilfully crafted feature debut demands global exposure."

"German (Pederson, giving his all in a thrilling, against-type performance) and Chook (Glenane, arcing his 'simple man' archetype from dimwitted follower to coldblooded killer with an agonising intensity). The actors are superb in roles that recall David Argue's and Chris Haywood's moronic, murderous mates in Russell Mulcahy's Razorback, minus the tension-relieving buffonery." – Screen Space

"Aaron Glenane... plays the deranged Chook very, very well." – Heavy Mag



'SOUL MATES' SERIES 2 TRAILER

'KILLING GROUND' WORLD PREMIERE AT MIFF
  12 July, 2016

Damien Power's survival thriller Killing Ground is set to have its World Premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival with screenings on August 4th and 6th. I'm fortunate enough to have played the incredibly complex Chook alongside one of our country's greatest actors Aaron Pedersen (Goldstone) with the exceptional Harriet Dyer, Ian Meadows, Julian Garner, Maya Stange and Tiarnie Coupland. Its a highly suspenseful thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.

Book tix here to the World Premiere: http://miff.com.au/program/film/killing-ground

A remote campsite. An abandoned tent. A romantic getaway to die for.

When young urbanites Ian and Sam decide to go camping, they arrive at their isolated destination to discover another tent already set up, but no sign of its owners. With the other campers at large, Ian and Sam's discovery of a child wandering alone sets off a terrifying chain of events that will push them to their limits – and beyond.

Inspired by Michael Haneke's Funny Games and Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs, writer/director Damien Power's gloriously tense and unsettling feature-film debut Killing Ground showcases a menacingly against-type Aaron Pedersen, in a low-budget survival thriller pulsing with high-stakes scares, piercing intensity and shocking violence that will make you think twice next time you dare to head beyond the bright lights of the city.

SEEING DOUBLE AT ST KILDA FILM FESTIVAL
  02 May, 2016

St Kilda Film Festival has just launched its 2016 program and two short films I was fortunate to have been a part of have been selected to have their World Premieres at this prestigious festival.
Firstly, OVERTIME, the story of office worker Ralph desperately trying to get home before the full moon rises and he turns into a werwolf, will screen as the Opening Film on Opening Night. With the likes of Odd Studio (2016 Oscar Winners for Mad Max: Fury Road) on board, you don't want to miss this horrifyingly hilarious dash home. Secondly, the satire surrounding the world of politics, as shown through the passionate Youth division that is YOUNG LABOR is ridiculously on point, especially with an upcoming election.
Get down there and enjoy some brilliant filmmaking talent.

FIRST REVIEW: "MOLLY"
  06 February, 2016

The first review for MOLLY is in. Have a read and see what you think!

"The bromance with Michael Gudinski (Aaron Glenane) is hilarious and typifies the larrikin streak through the whole production."
"Johnson morphs into Molly from the get-go. The similarity is uncanny, and not just visually, but never moves into parody. That was crucial for Molly to work. The same way Eric Bana channelled Chopper Read and had you instantly transfixed, Johnson's loving recreation of Molly anchors the entire mini-series. Which is lucky, because he's in virtually every single scene.
Johnson perfectly captures Meldrum's everyman quality, the one that continues to endear him to the nation.
They've shoehorned plenty in to the first instalment — they could have easily have made this a three-part series without padding. That's how you know you've got the right subject for a miniseries.
And while the first episode is all about the '70s, it begins, a little awkwardly, with his 2011 fall from the roof. The graphic thud as his head hits the floor will have people shuddering in loungerooms across Australia.
In its heyday, Countdown was seen by a remarkable three million people on a Sunday night. Split Enz (who pop up in the Countdown cafeteria) once sang about history never repeating. But don't be too surprised if Countdown, via Molly, hits those magical figures again, 40 years on."

MICHAEL GUDINSKI SERIES IN THE WORKS
  21 January, 2016

Who wants to see this?!
CHANNEL Seven boss Tim Worner has singled out music industry veteran Michael Gudinski as the latest subject of a real-life TV drama miniseries.
Speaking at the launch of the latest season of My Kitchen Rules, Worner said: "Michael, once we get Molly's story away we should do yours story because you are an icon of this industry."

Gudinski attended the event for Seven's upcoming drama, Molly, based on the life of Ian 'Molly' Meldrum.

Actor Aaron Glenane will portray Gudinski in the project that will air on Seven next month.

"Aaron has done a fantastic job speaking of idiosyncrasies although I think Michael has grown madder with the years and perhaps if you were to play him in 20 years or so it would be a more manic portrayal but a brilliant job Aaron," Worner said.

Well here it is... your first look at Damien Power's debut feature KILLING GROUND starring Aaron Pedersen, Harriet Dyer, Ian Meadows and myself. Check out this great article below with our stills photographer John Platt (Mad Max: Fury Road) and hear his discussion on the type of equipment used on the shoot especially his Fujifilm X-T1 and the camera's silent shutter.
"The shots make Power's first feature look a cross between Wolf Creek and the Michael Fassbender-vs-delinquent-kids horror Eden Lake from 2008. In Killing Ground, a couple on a camping trip stumble into a frightening ordeal when they discover a tent abandoned in the middle of the bush."

RIDE & FOURPLAY REVIEWS ARE IN
  19 September, 2015

The reviews are in for Darlinghurst Theatre Company's RIDE & FOURPLAY and Aaron's performance as Jack. Have a read below and see that he has turned in another moving performance that is not to be missed. As the guys from The Music have said, "This double bill is faultless. The set is dramatic, the scripts are relevant, the performances are genuine. This is the best serious theatre I've seen in Sydney this year." Check it out now!

"Glenane steals the show as the awkward Jack, while Scawthorn is excellently vulnerable and searching in portrayal of Alice. O'Sullivan and Palmer also shine brightly in an ensemble setting with a strong script and great direction from Anthony Skuse." - The AU Review
http://www.theaureview.com/arts/reviews/ride-and-fourplay-darlinghurst-theatre

"All four performances are strong, with Glenane especially commendable in underplaying Jack's eccentricities." - The Sydney Morning Herald
http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/theatre/ride--fourplay-review-poetic-heart-missing-in-jane-bodies-trails-of-lies-20150910-gjj51b.html

"Significant praise has to be awarded to Glenane for his performance as Jack. His quirky characterization walks an impressively fine line between a light-hearted humuor and a disconcerting damaged. The nuances and layering that he brings to his character create a boyish intensity that is regularly surprising and consistently mesmerizing." - The Buzz From Sydney

"Aaron Glenane has subtly sourced Jack's Aspergerish aspect and built a nicely nuanced character" - Australian Stage
http://www.australianstage.com.au/201509107450/reviews/sydney/ride-fourplay-%7C-darlinghurst-theatre-company.html

"Glenane's Jack is endearing in his reserved social ineptness, making it hard to dislike him even after his revelation. His facial expressions as he responds to the other conversations that play out are delightful." - Broadway World
http://www.broadwayworld.com/sydney/article/BWW-Review-RIDE-FOURPLAY-Pairs-Two-Poignant-Plays-About-Relationships-And-Identity-20150910#

"Aaron Glenane who played Jack in Fourplay seemed right at home in this production, his performance was a stand out for me. Glenane has a naturalistic ability to physically express his character with no sense of striving or strain. Glenane produced a character that was likeable, humorous and most of all genuine. Glenane formed a quick and potent connection with his audience, a very talented performer, a craftsman in his field, I loved his performance."

"It's a beautifully powerful and utterly confronting form of choreography that holds the audience to the bosom of this heavily emotive and smartly written work." - The Brag
http://www.thebrag.com/arts/ride-fourplay

"This double bill is faultless. The set is dramatic, the scripts are relevant, the performances are genuine. This is the best serious theatre I've seen in Sydney this year."
http://themusic.com.au/arts/reviews/2015/09/16/ride-and-fourplay-sean-maroney

"Mr Glenane, seen, relatively recently in ORPHANS, and last year in GRUSOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES, delivers a simply clued and deeply experienced through-line of storytelling." - Kevin Jackson's Theatre Diary

Rave reviews for Aaron in 'Orphans'
  17 April, 2015

Aaron has turned in a "magnificent performance" as Phillip in Lyle Kessler's modern masterpiece, ORPHANS which had it's opening night this week. Suzy Goes See was there to review the show and here's what she had to say.

"Aaron Glenane turns in a magnificent performance as the younger brother, Phillip. The actor is marvelously nuanced in his intensity, expressing with great efficacy an exhaustive range of psychological possibilities and physical attributes, completely captivating in a beautifully embellished characterisation of damaged innocence. Glenane's approach is adventurous and playful, but also sensitive and studied. He understands chemistry instinctively, and fosters a strong bond with colleagues and audience that keeps us invested in Phillip's plight."

Full article here: suzygoessee.com/.../review-orphans-old-fitz-theatre-red-line-productions/

"Aaron Glenane is just as powerful as Phillip, perfectly balanced with Henry's performance. Glenane's portrayal emphasises the character's fear and desperation to escape from the world his brother has created. He's also given the character some strong vocal and physical idiosyncrasies, which only serve to engender even more sympathy from the audience."

"It's rough, unpretentious, in two short broadly entertaining acts, but high on drama, action and testosterone."
- 4/5 stars Daily Review - Crikey

FIRST REVIEWS FOR 'DEADLINE GALLIPOLI'
  17 March, 2015

The first reviews for DEADLINE GALLIPOLI are in and it's clearly hitting the mark with critics. Deadline Gallipoli is a fresh look at the Gallipoli legend, from the perspective of four war correspondents, Phillip Schuler, Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett, Keith Murdoch and Charles Bean.These were the first truly embedded war correspondents whose defiance ignited a change in the campaign's course and whose commitment to the stories of the men who turned the war from a strategic failure into a triumph of the human spirit.

Starring alongside Sam Worthington, Hugh Dancy and Charles Dance, Aaron plays front line soldier Stan Phipps in the 9 month long campaign on Anzac Cove. Foxtel's powerful new Australian mini-series Deadline Gallipoli will have its world premiere over two nights next month – Sunday April 19 and Monday April 20, at 8.30pm EST, on showcase.

"While the troops sacrificed wilfully "for God and Empire" remain the heroic heart of this miniseries, it's these four messengers who stay committed to telling the truth of events - motivated to keep those men left from being more "food for worms" - who bring fresh insight to this well-worn tale. ...being reminded of the horror, of the human sacrifice, even the value of a free press, makes it essential viewing." - http://www.news.com.au/../sam-worthingtons-deadline-gallipoli-is-a-reminder-how-australia-lost-its-innocence/

"Deadline is epic, cinematic even, but at its heart, this is a story about the little guy standing up to the bigger one. And there's something very Australian about that." - http://www.tvweeklogieawards.com.au/.../deadline-gallipoli-first-look-review/

"Director Michael Rymer is the unseen star of this drama, a master at bringing to life the drama...he deftly juggles the emotions of the individuals within the opera of this war, wrapped around grand set pieces that are most satisfying for the committed viewer." - TV Tonight http://tvtonight.com.au/.../deadline-gallipoli.html
