The Legend of Ben Hall was filmed between August 2014 to June 2015.
The film began as a wildly successfully crowd-funded short film, and six months later it was rewritten and launched as full length motion picture production.
The Legend of Ben Hall was mostly shot on location in regional Victoria throughout the Macedon Ranges, with some additional filming taking place in regional New South Wales around Forbes and Jugiong. With no structures from the Gold Rush Era remaining, several bush huts and buildings had to be built from scratch by the film's Art Department.
Along with a large cast and crew, the production also required over thirty horses, six coaches, wagons and various other animals, all provided by veteran film wranglers Evanne Cheesom and Bruce Gleeson of Australian Movie Livestock.
Locations were scouted around Kyneton, Victoria and were chosen for their resemblence to the Ben Hall districts of New South Wales. The challenges of location shooting were immense, with the hard-working cast and crew enduring blazing heat, frequent rain, freezing temperatures and blistering winds.
In May 2015, the cast and crew moved from the harsh outdoor elements to the world-class studio facilities at the Docklands Studios in Melbourne. The film was completed at the post-production facility Soundfirm.
