ORIGINAL CONTENT

Welcome to our page for original content. The following are projects we are either in the process of making or have already made.

We get asked what are the common threads in our films?

The answer is pretty straight forward. Each of them, in their own way, are simply bloody good stories!

INCREDIBLE NONSENSE

Who's the bigger fool? The fool or the fool who follows the fool? Filmmaker, Scott, reconnects with school friend, Pete, who takes him on an adventure that is part Hearts of Darkness, part Indiana Jones. With their lives firmly in Pete's hands they head to the uncharted forests of the Solomon Islands in search of local legends of giants.

STACKORAMA!

FEATURETTE - FINANCING

Stackorama! is a rollercoaster ride through the world of the International Sports Stacking (or competitive cup stacking for uninitiated).
Told through the eyes of fifteen year old competitor, Jaydyn. Jaydyn found out by watching cup stackers on Youtube that he was as good as the best in the world. Sports stacking has since become his world. This is the third time he has attended the event and is hoping for a top 5 finish.
But it’s not all smooth sailing for Jaydyn and his family as they travel to Orlando for the event. Lurking in the background is the disgraced, former Australian coach, still making his presence known despite being banned from the event.
