Very excited to have been shortlisted for the Australian Writer’s Guild’s John Hinde Award for best unproduced sci-fi screenplay!
Very excited to have won the Best Script award at The Heart of Gold International Film Festival in sunny Gympie in October! Thanks so much to the entire festival team - and, as always, to the cast and crew of MY BEST FRIEND IS STUCK ON THE CEILING!
The film also won the GRAND PRIZE for Best Science Fiction Short Film at the 2017 Flickers' Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival 2017 (Rhode Island) in October!
The film is finally wrapping up its festival run, and I'm hard at work on my next short. See you in 2018 with that one!
Super excited to announce that MY BEST FRIEND IS STUCK ON THE CEILING has been officially selected for the Melbourne International Film Festival!
We're playing on Aug 7 and Aug 14 as part of the Australian Shorts program (with radical friends Eddie White, Corrie Chan and Andrew Kavanagh amongst other great stuff!). I'll be heading over on the 7th so come along. Tix here.
It's been a while between updates, but I've been busy directing my newest short, MY BEST FRIEND IS STUCK ON THE CEILING! You can see a trailer below:
MY BEST FRIEND IS STUCK ON THE CEILING stars Tom Ward (PLEASE LIKE ME) and Erin James (THE LITTLE DEATH) and was produced by Sophie Hyde and Christine Williams at Closer Productions!
The film premiered at Adelaide Film Fest in 2015, and recently won Best Comedy and Best Screenplay at the SA Screen Awards. Now, it's all set to make its international debut at Palm Springs ShortFest in the coming weeks. Can't wait to get over there! It's gonna be hot!
Thanks, as always, to the cast and crew, and to the film's supporters the South Australian Film Corporation, The Adelaide Film Festival, Kojo, Carclew, and Closer.
After that, I've got a few things bubbling away, including a feature and a TV project in development with Closer Productions which will be great to spill the beans on in the coming months.
Good times ahead - onwards and upwards! #gocrows
Excited to launch my new website. You're on it already. Carry on.
The dudes at Godel designed this and I am thankful for that. Thankyou, Godel.
Head on over to the Catharsis page to check out my new short story writing project, funded by the excellent folks at Carclew Youth Arts. It's also got some killer, killer art by Adelaide based artist David Keen who is a legend.
Time to celebrate:
