In 2013 I teamed up with my old pal director Eddy Bell working as Dramaturg on his short film Grey Bull. I travelled out to rural Victoria and spent two weeks freezing my ass off, eating way too many vanilla slices and making a film with the enthusiastic community of Nathalia, a South Sudanese family who were at the centre of the story, a great crew of seasoned professionals and a few moody bulls (like real bulls with horns). The film went on to win ADG Best Short, FLICKERFEST Best Short, MIFF Best Short, St Kilda and Sydney Film Festival to name a few.
The Director/Dramaturg team are back together and we’re about to head into our next adventure which may have a cow in it just for old times sake – I’M RAYMOND begins filming this week. With Leon Ford, Alison Bell, Geraldine Hakewill and introducing young Frederick Holahan-Cantwell.
