Rake 1

Produced by Ian Collie
Essentail Media

It was a delight to work with the Essential Media crew again, and it’s always fun working on a production that is as colourful as Rake that covers a wide genre of music.

We pitched and cleared numerous songs from ‘Pleasure & Pain’ by iconic Aussie band, The Divinyls, to the childhood gem, ‘How Much Is That Doggie In The Window’. Add some works by Mozart, authentic Lebanese music and the classic songs ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ and ‘Yes Sir I Can Boogie’…and you know by day’s end, you’re working on something very special!

RAKE is an 8-part comedy drama series that features the world of Cleaver Greene, a brilliant criminal defence lawyer who is a rake in his private life – a dissolute but loveable rogue constantly in debt and who has a penchant for matters pleasurable..

Cleaver Greene is played by Richard Roxburgh and guest stars Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Sam Neill.

Rake II coming in 2012
