A confession: I acclimated to be bedeviled with Spartacus, the claret and glam of that ultra-violent super-stylish Starz alternation about gladiators. Attempt in New Zealand, it featured a host of buffed and admirable bounded actors including Lucy Lawless, the backward Andy Whitfield, Jai Courtney and Dustin Clare.
So aback a columnist absolution came through about ‘Shelter’, a new alive belvedere of curated agreeable about Design, Architectonics and Lifestyle, created by Dustin Clare. I had to wonder, was it that Dustin Clare?
Of course. Clare is already accepted far above the realms of his ample acting career (shows like McLeod’s Daughters, Underbelly, Satisfaction, Wolf Creek and Pacific Rim: Uprising). He was was called one of SPA’s arising producers in 2015 and his bearing credits accommodate The Meaning of Vanlife, as able-bodied as controlling bearing In Bob We Trust, Canadian documentary A Time for Making and US affection A Fighting Season.
Clare additionally chairs the lath of Bounded Australian blur anatomy ScreenWorks, based abreast his hometown of Ballina in the NSW Northern Rivers region, area he’s a articulate apostle for awning opportunities for bodies alfresco the big smoke.
But it’s Apartment we’re actuality to allege about. On the buzz to Screenhub, Clare says the alive platform, which launches at the end of this week, has been blame about in his arch for a while now.
‘I’ve been complex in blur administration and sales for actually a cardinal of years with my aggregation Fighting Chance Films. And we’ve been cerebration about how you adeptness skip that hurdle of administration and sales, and become the anchorperson yourself, in a way. How do you go from aggravating to acquisition a home for your content, to actuality the home for it, the aftermost point of acquaintance for the viewer?’
He says the appearance of beginning internet-provided TV ‘has accustomed us the adeptness to become a all-around anchorperson afterwards accepting to buy allotment of the radio spectrum and pay millions of dollars anniversary year.’
The capital focus at the barrage for Apartment will be the English-speaking territories.
Clare has had an absorption in architectonics and architecture aback he was a teenager. ‘I grew up on agriculture sites blame a barrow for my father,’ he says. ‘And added recently, with my wife and kids and our ancestors growing, we’ve bare to aggrandize the abode and acquisition artistic solutions. I actually like actuality hands-on with carpentry and alive with friends who are carpenters over the years on our assorted projects.’

Shelter will alpha with over 200 hours of curated agreeable from Australian, NZ, Europe, UK, Ireland, Canada, the US and South America. There will be affection films, television series, exceptional annual agreeable and absolute originals. Clare is best aflame about his own Apartment Originals project, the Inspired Architectonics alternation of 6 x 15 minute episodes exploring abnormally Australian structures, all of which are ‘regional’ and abandoned in their own ways.

Anniversary adventure includes interviews with the Architects and their allotment clients, attempt by award-winning filmmaking Jim Lounsbury (The Meaning of Vanlife – Stan, The Infinite Lens – NatGeo).
‘We’re actually focused on the anecdotal with this series,’ says Clare, ‘not aloof the buildings. We appetite to apperceive why they came to be, who congenital them, did they alive up to the brief, and what were the challenges? And of course, who are the bodies in them now?’
Trying to shoot this absolute during the communicable has had its challenges, and some things accept collapsed over. ‘Architects accept said “yes”, and their admirers accept said “no”, that affectionate of affair afflicted the selection. But in the end, the ones we’ve got are absolute alarming and memorable buildings.’
Other highlights from the antecedent barrage alms includes appearance like Homo Sapiens (2016), The Edge of the Possible (1998), Ken Roche: The Quiet Architect (2017), Tiny (2013), Harry Seidler: Modernist (2017) and Streets of Your Boondocks (2015) with amateur and architectural enthusiast Tim Ross.

The belvedere has partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, a non-profit organisation accustomed to abate abjection and restore forests in countries devastated by deforestation. Anniversary month, a timberline will be buried to represent every subscriber to Shelter.
So how does Apartment fit into a awash card of alive options? ‘There are a lot of ball casework now, which is admirable and we’re all besmirched for choices, admitting bristles years ago we had absolute little,’ says Clare. ‘But I anticipate the abutting beachcomber of casework will be added niche, actually focused on a absolute ambition audience. For us that’s architects, home owners, renovators, architecture aficionados, bodies who accept bought their aboriginal home and are cerebration about account for what to do with it.’
A key allotment of costs has been the partnerships added brands, including all-around magazines Dwell and Green Magazine, and Apartment will host some of their exceptional content. ‘We’re affective from a still image, which has been the acceptable agreeable in a magazine, to the affective image. Clare says he’s additionally alive with some added brands about bundling and it’s a staged approach.
The absolute belvedere is actuality anatomy by NZ tech accouterments Shift 72. ‘They’re architecture our apps for the IOS and android stores. We’ve got added advancing on afterwards in the year, specific to assertive territories.’
Has there been any allotment advance or abutment from Australian awning bodies? ‘No.’ Clare pauses for a continued moment. ‘You can apprehend into that.’
He says he’s afraid but aflame about the barrage on Friday, and acquisitive for fast growth. Already aback announcement the action he’s had agreeable providers contacting him with added absolute from this ‘very admired but underrepresented genre.’
‘I’ve been advantageous abundant to accept a actually abundant career as an actor, and it brings relationships you can afterwards angular on.’
How do you go about architecture a subscriber abject for a new belvedere like Shelter? ‘The action has been about alive with big accustomed brands and their absolute user bases, and that may be through deals and bundling, and leveraging those absolute annual audiences.’
It sounds ambitious, so what’s been the better learning? ‘I’m acquirements every day and it’s exhausting!’ he laughs. ‘There’s so abundant to apprentice from legals, to abstruse issues, and industry issues. I’m absolute advantageous to accept acute bodies about me who can accord to it.’

Although Clare apparently sighs at the Spartacus reference in the appellation of this article, it is afterwards all the affair that got me sniffing at the adventure initially, and that’s allotment of the business of relationships and awareness. He says he’ll absolutely accumulate performing, if the roles and the timing are right.
Before we blanket up he’s agog to acknowledgment Screenworks, which is ‘very abutting to my heart.’
