When I'm not doing any of that, you can find me where the free booze is, possibly with a camera in my hand.

FIGURE 8 – Trailer

BEN MENZIES / December 01

I’m hyped for this. Looks like Ben McCormick and Matt Evans have taken a more cinematic direction with Perth’s latest full length and the resulting polish more than justifies their efforts. Featuring full parts from Phillip Marshall, Justin Lloyd, Barry Mansfield, Mitch Cunningham, Quayde Baker and a freshly [...]
