Go Frisk Yourself

Screen Shot 2015-01-18 at 11.13.19 pm

At long last, I present to you the trailer for Frisky.

For the love of all things holy, go and like the Frisky Facebook page. And for heaven’s sake, share the hell out of this video.

When two twenty-something women move back to San Francisco, where they had met on exchange years earlier, their high career aspirations quickly become sidelined by their sexual interests. While wildly crass and charismatic in their public personas, they are in fact fundamentally at odds on many levels. Their opposing beliefs surrounding responsibility and romance, combined with their close quarters while crashing in an acquaintance’s living room, find them thrust onto a fast track to discovering what their friendship is really made of.
Based on true events, Frisky is an honest, tongue-in-cheek look at what it is to be a woman in the limbo years between college and “the real world”.

Frothpocalypse!

My mates Pru, Emma and I have banded together to make comedy sketches on the regular. We call ourselves Frothpocalypse. And we’ve made a website like a bunch of tech-savvy legends.

Check it out here.

In the unlikely event that you didn’t bother to click the above link, here is one of our videos that might entice you to do so:

Stay frothy, muchachos.

Liar Liar Pants on Fire

Prudence and I gathered today planning on filming a couple of sketches. Instead we bonded over a mutual appreciation for flatulence anecdotes and spent the rest of our Sunday afternoon taking the comedic high road as we edited together what we believe the Belle Gibson interview on 60 Minutes should have gone like.

Enjoy.

Stay classy, Australia.

UPDATE: Looks like we’re not the only fans of classic low-brow gags… Thanks for being so quick on the uptake, Pedestrian.tv! Check out the article here

UPDATE: Wow. 11k views in the first 24 hours?! What a sophisticated bunch we are. Makes me question why we ever bother scripting intelligent comedy.

Trailer Blazin’

After receiving the first little bit (in hopefully in a long line) of festival attention last week, I present to you the long-awaited trailer for Winning Formula – a comedy feature film I wrote and, alongside Prudence Vindin, starred in.

Go ahead and watch it repeatedly, and share the pants off it. Por favor.

Blowing up at the Bowlo

What a coupla babes.

Righto, so sometimes my mate Prudence Vindin and I like to dress up as old blokes and have a yarn. Today’s vid was shot last time I was in Australia over the new year down at my local RSL’s Bowlo. Keith and Kev, two old buggers originally discovered while shooting Wookie Error, had such a warm reception among our mates that we decided to give it another burl.

Pru and I have been nominated for our Heaps Funny Shorts blog (which contains a plethora of videos such as these) in the Pedestrian.tv Blogster awards. Give us a commitment-free like and we’ll be forever in your debt.

I finally got time to edit it between a multitude of social and less-social engagements and my newly acquired gainful employment which involved a hell of a trip to Canada to get my visa (hurricanes, cancelled flights, lost passports, evacuations, the circus that is Niagara Falls…) but I made it. So the content’s coming out a little slower now that I’m ‘getting that cash’ as an architectural designer, but on the horizon lurks yet another mural, more illustration, and a ton of videos.
