Tupperware - It’s more than just plastic
Moustache Incident
Behind the Wall

My four short films range in length, format and style. One is experimental and shot on bolex film. One is a four and a half minute documentary on Tupperware parties. One is a comedy about bedroom etiquette. And the final and longest one at 16:45 and charts the breakdown of a young couple’s relationship in rural NSW. What they have in common is a unique way of looking at the world and an unconventional take on the everyday, whether through style, subject matter or both. Audiences find connection and amusement in equal measure. My films could stand alone, be screened on a loop or fit well into a group show environment.
