HUGE Film Festival Announcement!
Official Selection 2024 St Kilda Film Festival!

I’m thrilled and incredibly proud to share the amazing news that the comedy short film that I directed and co-wrote for @busstopfilms, “Dungeons, Goblins and Broccoli” has been selected to screen in competition at the Oscar qualifying St Kilda Film Festival!


The festival is one of longest running and perhaps one of the most lauded Australian short film festivals and to be a selected filmmaker has been a bit of career goal to achieve.


Without the awesome production team that I had to work with on this project, the incredible Bus Stop Films Students and the powerhouse strengths of the Bus Stop Films leadership, ticking off this career goal for the first time would not have likely happened the way it has!


I’m looking forward to making the trip to Melbourne next month and attending the festival in person!

Our Gaffer and Grip was John Waterhous with best boy Shane Marion and lighting interns James Kelly and Mason Galgey. Taylor Thomson was the films script supervisor.
