The first film, Homecoming, is at the final stages of sound postproduction and should be released very soon. This is an amazing film featuring production and performance work from some of Perth’s finest creatives. The second film is called Excursion and features an enormous cast of established and fresh Perth talent, as well as some fine production work from a variety of collaborators I’m proud to have worked with.
