My short film 'Daylight Robbery' was shot quickly in February on my phone to be screened at the Whyalla Film Festival. However, as with most things this year, the event didn't go to plan and was pushed back due to the global pandemic. Here it is:

The rules of the competition stipulated that the film had to be shot and edited entirely on a phone - which is much more challenging than I thought it would be to make it look good. It also had to be under sixty seconds (minus credits) I hastily wrote a script and drew up an animatic:

I conned some friends into appearing in the movie and we then quickly threw together a set and got shooting. Getting a lot of mileage out of all the random pieces of paper that we printed out.

The final version came out pretty close to the animatic.

All this being said, it was pretty surprising when the postponed Whyalla Film Festival did get staged and we found out that ours was the winning entry. Unfortunately I couldn't be there but was happy to accept the win from Michal Hughes and the other members of WFF committee.

Most probably inspired by the closures and devastation currently haunting the arts sector at the moment, Andrew Petrusevics has curated a video show for the Southwest Contemporary gallery on Sturt St in Adelaide. It was my honour to produce a piece of work as one of the fourteen artists involved in this project.

My piece, called 'Threnody', is something of an abstracted depiction of the chaos and instability I hear everyone expressing throughout their experiences with 2020 and maybe a little bit of guilt that you've got it better than a lot of other people out there.

If you have the time and means, please go see the show either from the street or the comfort of your car. It is running through this month Wednesday until Sunday starting at 6pm and finishing at 12am.

Visit the Southwest Contemporary website or facebook page for more info.

I had the extreme pleasure of helping out (in an extraordinarily minimal way) with the great theatre piece from SAYarts, Only Human.

Only Human is a fantastic work of absurdist fiction (though that remains to be seen) directed by Claire Glenn and written by Sophia Simmons. I'd like to thank Claire for letting me be involved and Stu from Blue Goanna Digital for his handy 'on-call' tutelage.

You can purchase tickets for Only Human at the Adelaide Fringe from HERE


Here are some reviews of the show:
