Conceived in Melbourne, Australia, Leigh Whannell met James Wan when they were Media Arts/Filmmaking understudies at the Melbourne Institute of Technology. They turned into the best of companions and trusted one day to make a film together. Meanwhile, Whannell found an on air work as a film commentator from 1997 to 1998 on the Australian Broadcasting Network arrangement Recovery, at that point as a correspondent for ABC’s show In Entertainment. His obligations included talking Hollywood stars and chiefs who were advancing their movies. In spite of the fact that he’d figured out how to arrive little parts in The Matrix Reloaded and the Aussie film One Perfect Day (both taped in 2002), conversing with A-rundown famous people strengthened Leigh’s craving to star in a film, so he and James got together and thought of a story, at that point Leigh composed the screenplay.
The content made the rounds in Australia, yet they couldn’t discover money related sponsorship, so their chief sent it to an abstract specialist in America. Wan coordinated an eight-minute example short on DVD to take to Los Angeles to indicate potential sponsor. Makers at the US film organization Evolution were inspired by what they saw. They enjoyed Wan’s directorial style and Whannell’s acting, and consented to keep them on, as opposed to supplanting them with enormous name ability. Advancement at that point marked Cary Elwes and Danny Glover for the other lead parts in the motion picture, called Saw (2004). The film debuted at Sundance, at that point was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival before getting a wide North American discharge in October 2004. It was such a major hit in the cinematic world, that few continuations were made.
