Award winning author Holden Sheppard’s Invisible Boys is being turned into a Stan series to be shot in the Mid West!

Invisible Boys portrays the complex lives of a group of gay teens living in Geraldton. As the drama unfolds, the friends' identities and desires bring tensions that test the strength of their friendships, forging the bonds that come from teenage years as outsiders in a country town.

Stan commissioned the series following a Stan and Screenwest joint development initiative, designed to foster local talent and spark the development of new series in WA.

The series is created and directed by Nicholas Verso (Boys In The Trees, Crazy Fun Park, Itch), produced by Tania Chambers (How to Please a Woman, Kill Me Three Times) and the writing team includes Holden Sheppard, Enoch Mailangi (All My Friends Are Racist, Year Of), Allan Clarke (The Dark Emu Story) and Declan Greene.

The series has received support from Screenwest, Lotterywest, Screen Australia and the Government of Western Australia's WA Regional Screen Fund. The WA Regional Screen Fund is designed to attract screen projects to undertake production in regional WA and is one of a range of State Government incentives that support our screen industry.

The Commission works closely with Screenwest to generate positive social and economic outcomes for the region with productions accessing the WA Screen Fund. Invisible Boys is estimated to bring more than $6.4 million expenditure to the State, boosting businesses and creating 280 local jobs.
