After last year's pandemic brought TV and film productions to a halt globally, Australia has managed to bounce back arguably stronger than ever.
Not only are we now attracting more huge Hollywood productions than ever, but we're also seeing locally-made productions in greater numbers.
The latest announcement to come from Stan, original film Transfusion, is set to feature some of our brightest stars: Sam Worthington and Phoebe Tonkin.
"Transfusion is a taut, muscular thriller starring Sam Worthington as Ryan Logan, a former Special Forces operative, who is battling to cope with life after the loss of his wife and is thrust into the criminal underworld to keep his only son from being taken from him," the announcement reads.

Phoebe plays Ryan's wife, Justine and is joined by Matt Nable who, as well as directing, will play a character called Johnny.
Filming began in Sydney this week and the film will premiere on Stan and in cinemas in 2022.
After making a name for herself overseas with The Vampire Diaries and subsequent spin-off The Originals, former H20: Just Add Water star Phoebe, returned home to star in Aussie series Safe Harbour and Bloom.
Phoebe said Bloom and Safe Harbour are some of her best work yet. Stan
Speaking to TV WEEK the 31-year-old admitted she believed it was some of her best work yet.
"I think people in Australia will get to see me in a different light," Phoebe said.
"I think everyone pigeonholed me as a sort of kid actor. But I've finally been able to do things, sign onto things I believe in, that challenge me and that have brought me to places I want to go."
