Dwayne Cameron is taking on his first solo directing project next year, with the short film Holding The Sun, which he also wrote.
The plot outline is: “A man embedded in western business culture struggles to find the spiritual tools necessary to deal with the death of his son”… Definitely not giving much away. The short film definitely sounds intriguing!
This is not the first time he has been directing, fans of The Tribe will already be aware that he had did some behind the camera work on The Tribe.
Holding The Sun will be shot in in Feb 2011, to keep up to date with Dwayne’s short film, follow his official Facebook page for updates.
Dwayne Cameron is currently involved in the film Arresting Love
Proof you can’t keep a good thing down! It’s well over 10 years since The Tribe
was made and the ‘it’ couple of the series have made it onto ABC3′s
top 3 chart, for their programmes, as the channel celebrates their one year birthday
. They made the top three lists for the cutest couple
AND the list for best kiss
(who can forget the highly memorable lip-lock exchange on Eagle Mountain?).
The couple Bray and Amber were portrayed by Dwayne Cameron and Beth Allen. The couple paired up in series 1 and 3 of The Tribe. Post ‘The Tribe’, Beth and Dwayne appeared onscreen together in Power Rangers : Operation Overdrive.
To be honest I’m disappointed The Tribe didn’t make the top three list for explosions (Series 2 Eagle Mountain, Series 3 explosion of the Chosen fuel depot and of course the explosion at the end of series 5!). Well done to Beth Allen and Dwayne Cameron, may Bramber live on! And a big Happy Birthday to ABC3!!!
Thanks to the lovely Jojo F for the info. Images are from the awesome Tribe Leader and BethAllen.webs.

The film is set in Auckland (it was filmed in Delhi [India] aswell as Auckland [New Zealand]), it is about the experiences and aspirations of Sidharth (Anand Naidu), a mid twenties migrant from Delhi who moves to Auckland.

Jill Roberts who plays the lead role in the short film told The Timaru Herald about working on the short. She said about Dwayne Cameron: “Dwayne is an excellent actor, a very strong but subtle performer”.
More news… According to his updated agency profile, Dwayne has been in rehearsals for an up coming Thomas Sainsbury theatre production The Continental Monologues at the Te Karanga Gallery. Dwayne already featured in Thomas’ play Psychopaths earlier this year. I’m guessing The Continental Monologues will open to theatre audiences later this year.
Dwayne Cameron (aka original Tribe hero Bray) was on stage last week in the Thomas Sainsbury production Pshycopaths. In the horror/comedy play Dwayne played the character Pierre. The play is a bout a girl called Amy who moves to New York to perform in musicals, while there she finds herself being terrorised… (Full press release is pasted below).
