I’m interested in speaking to talented nut jobs who are interested in creating their place in history with the making of this short film destined to become a cult classic. It starts with entry into the 2014 Trop Fest. From there we’ll enter as many National and International film festivals as possible.
In a previous year’s submission I attained selection for ‘The Best of the Rest’ top 20 Trop Fest selection with a film was in 3 days as a bit of a lark. The film ‘The Fortuneteller’ was also selected by Qantas for their In House Entertainment Program. The film I’d like to enter this year will also take about 3 days but I’m taking a much more applied approach.
The film, entitled ‘Jason and the Golden Probe’ is very quirky/funny and unique to say the least and is guaranteed to attract interest. It will be shot in a quasi-doco style meets Twisted Sister’s Twisted Sister. The script is complete and I have done a shooting schedule including props, costumes etc, broken down by scene.
The story is based on an interview with a real person. It involves a gangster assassination, matrix mind-melds, alien probes, a peyote trip and the search for gold by a human metal detector. It’s like an ep of ‘The Twilight Zone’ on shrooms.
I’m looking for a cinematographer and sound duo (even if you haven’t met yet) who can work well together over a number of internal and external locations as well as an editor with a wild imaginative flair. This is a collaboration/coop with me as the evil ubermind but I will cover any production costs (all $50 worth) and am prepared to share any profits the film may make over it’s lifetime which I estimate to be somewhere in excess of around $75!!!
I’m hoping gear may be provided but am open to begging. Filming will take place over 3 full days in and around the Sydney CBD and must be completed no later than September 25th which allows a couple of weeks for editing to meet the October 10th submission deadline.
I am a writer with many years experience. I also trained at WAPPA and am an award winning actor. I will be playing all the roles. Don’t laugh, my performance will make you want to runaway, join a cult and drink the Cool Aid through a nose straw.
Shooting schedule is flexible but we’ll need to commence as soon after selection as possible. Only seriously talented weirdoes need apply. No Divas, tantrum throwers, lazy- arsed dummy suckers, or fast talking talentless wannabe wankers. This gig is not about ego it’s about working as a team and creating something unique and compelling… together!

Knock three times and say ‘Bernice sent me.’ Please include details of any relevant experience, equipment owned, showreel/links etc. I’m happy to send the script and breakdowns to seriously talented weirdoes who may be interested.
You know you wanna… and you’ll kick yourself if you don’t.
