Screen Australia has announced almost $60,000 in support for two short films through its Short Film Completion Fund. The films are in various stages of post-production and this funding will ensure these projects are completed to a high standard and enable the filmmakers to realise the best versions of their visions.
Writer Michelle Law and director Corrie Chen will complete their comedy Bloomers, which takes the viewer into the world of a pubescent girl fast tracking her way into womanhood using somewhat unconventional methods. Bloomers is being produced by Jiao Chen.
Writer and director Lynne Vincent McCarthy will complete her thriller Test Drive, a gripping tale about a woman trapped in the back seat of her own car, captive to two volatile brothers whose relationship is set to explode. Test Drive is being produced by Samantha Jennings and Angus Stevens.
Jiao Chen is a Metro Screen Multiplatform Scholarship Graduate and technical assistant.
Angus Stevens and Sam Jennings have been tutors and mentors at Metro Screen.
