South By Scooter To Screen At Revelation Perth IFF

My little Antarctic romp South By Scooter will be screening at the 2014 Revelation Perth International Film Festival. The short will screen three times alongside Antarctica: A Year On IceAnthony Powell's account of life on Antarctica for the everyday workers who keep the community running. Needless to say I am thrilled with how well South By Scooter has been doing this year. It's an honour to be included in the lineup at Revelation, and even better to be packaged with such a beautiful film.

You can check out the trailer for Antarctica: A Year on Ice below, and if you're in Perth I encourage you to get out and check out this bumper two-for-one Antarctica-fest.

The festival runs through early July. Head over to the Revelation website for session times and to book your tickets.


South By Scooter Screens at the Adelaide Kids Film Festival

Last Thursday I joined a sold-out audience of Primary School students at Adelaide Studios for a screening of South By Scooter at the third Adelaide Kids Film Festival.

AKFF was the first festival appearance by South By Scooter. Needless to say the whole experience was a lot of fun. Watching an audience of children enjoy my film was truly fantastic feedback.

The big unknown for me going into the festival was whether or not the kids would find the film funny, and whether it would be able to sustain their attention. I wondered if they might lose interest, especially during the more contemplative sequences such as 'Alone'. So I was absolutely thrilled to see the snowstorm and penguin sequences receive a big laugh, and to see the audience were genuinely engaged by the film!

It really was a treat seeing South By Scooter screened at AKFF. Hopefully this is just the beginning of South By Scooter's festival run!
