South By Scooter to Tour Australia, Screen at Sydney Opera House.

The 2014 Little Big Shots Film Festival is touring Australia and it's taking South By Scooter along for the ride. The film will be showing all over the country including screenings at the Sydney Opera House, The National Film and Sound Archive, the Adelaide Festival Centre, the Fremantle Arts Centre, and more.

Watch: Max Talks South By Scooter on TV

As part of Little Big Shots' tenth anniversary celebrations, Channel 31 put together a really neat documentary about the festival. In it I talk about South By Scooter, how I produced the film, and what it means to be a young filmmaker in the festival.  

I couldn't be happier with how the show turned out. I've always felt that the main thing South By Scooter is lacking is a hair light, and we've certainly made up for that here.

The show aired a few times in June and is now available to watch online. The South By Scooter part begins at around the 3:20 mark, but the whole thing is worth a watch. Check it out below:

I got 'featured' in my local paper.

Max in the Progress leader. Tap the image for a closer look at the words.

That 'recent' incident involving a 'trip' to the South Pole got featured in my local paper the Progress Leader the other day. Doing my best to make Mum / my friends' mums proud! Are you reading this Christine? The photo shoot was hilarious. The fitness class on Canterbury oval had no idea what we were up to… NOW they know!

South By Scooter will be screening several times over the weekend as part of the Little Big Shots International Film Festival. The festival is in Melbourne at ACMI, so If you're interested in coming along I encourage you to book your tickets soon as sessions are beginning to sell out. 

Also - the 'inverted commas'!

Last Saturday myself and Chloe Boulton appeared on 3CR's On Screen. We had a great chat with Melinda O'Connor about Little Big Shots and my film South By Scooter. It was a real pleasure to be on a show with such lively conversation. It's well worth a listen, and you may do so above. Our segment begins at the start and goes for about fifteen minutes. 

South By Scooter will be screening several times over the next couple of weeks as part of the Little Big Shots International Film Festival. The festival is in Melbourne at ACMI, so If you're interested in coming along I encourage you to book your tickets soon as sessions are beginning to sell out.
