30 Short Films 2005

film / publicspace

Development of a film assets for the opening of a cinema complex in Sydney’s Bondi Junction.


Rescoping the original “three short film” suggestion, I assembled a collaborative team to develop 30 filmic vignettes = “popcorn” movies tracking the development of three filmed scenes from different genres – Space adventure, Romantic Comedy and Film Noir. I wrote each scene and assembled the production crew to shoot each main scene in 35mm Panavision, and the remainder of the¬†27¬†vignettes in 16:9 digital video [which I shot] – which was extensively graded and treated. Ben Briand directed the main sequences and Matt Dooley line produced the work as well as producing some incredible music!


The works played in interstitial moments on screens in the visitor circulation areas of the new multiplex complex. The work was delivered beyond expectation and to budget, with a host of student internships established in the production phase. The project not only created thew work, but provided a valuable internship experience for over 20 digital media students.
