It’s Just Gary premieres at Future Shorts

Our new comedy It’s Just Gary will premiere in Perth at the Australian launch of global film festival Future Shorts on Saturday June 19.

The film was funded through the FTI and ScreenWest LINK initiative and tells the story of a nobody who comes face to face with the absurd nature of the cult of celebrity.

It’s Just Gary features WA’s finest comic talent, including Damon Lockwood, national improv comedy champions Glenn Hall and Jimmy James Eaton,  the incomparable Andrea Gibbs and Sam Longley, and the most venerable Peter Holland, Maurie Ogden and Bill McCluskey.

The short will screen with Colours, a program direct from London that will take viewers on a tour around the globe, from China to South Africa and beyond. The expanded cinema extravaganza will also include the electronic pop revelry of local act Brash and Sassy as well as roaming interactive performance artists.

It’s Just Gary is wrapped (plus on set photos)

After a jam-packed 7 day shoot, we’ve wrapped principal photography on It’s Just Gary, our new short film.

After months of development, it was invigorating to finally being on set and have it all come together. It was such a joy to work on, due to our superb crew of both industry professionals and eager emerging practitioners. The tone on set was relaxed and full of humour, and we look forward to working with such a fantastic crew again.

Photographer and part-time private detective Jetro Gaete snapped some on-set pics, which we’ll post on the upcoming It’s Just Gary website. But here’s a taster for y’all.
