Attrition - 2014

A science fiction political drama where a family must choose who among them must die so that a new baby can live.

Written and directed by Miranda Richardson, this emotionally charged film follows four flawed characters' struggle to find morality in a dehumanising environment. Funded by the Helpmann Academy in association with Flinders Creations, the film will soon be entered into film festivals.

Matthew Hiding

June Barrett (Rachel D’Sena) struggles to comprehend the situation when her family is brought to the High Court of Attrition to discuss who among her family should die so that a new baby can live. In a future where overpopulation has become a threat to our entire species, legal regulation is necessary.

Every member of the family faces internal conflicts of saving each other or saving themselves, for the good of the individual or the good of the many. But they are all feeling worn down and June finds that it may be impossible to tell who deserves to die, especially when it might be herself.

Choose Your Poison - 2013

This murder mystery was written and directed by Luke Bartholomew as a challenge for his final year in university. Stepping out of his comfort zone of comedic films, and attempting to fit a genre that’s usually suited to a long-form narrative, Luke set out on this highly rewarding challenge to great public success.

An invitation is sent out to the country’s finest detectives to gather at a countryside manor to work out who’s killing them off one by one. When one of them is murdered during the night, suspicions turn to each other.

Unsound Methods - 2012

Unsound Methods is a physical comedy silent action film. It was an experiment with genres on a low budget, trying to create a film as if Charlie Chaplin had made a cliché 80s action film.

DJ is a cop by day, and a DJ by night. His partner Benno thinks he's black and doesn't play by the rules. When they meet Nancy from the local radio station, she tells them of a strange frequency. Then suddenly all they can hear is silent film piano!

Chips - 2011

A short 1 minute film made by Luke Bartholomew, starring Ashley Chadwick and Mario Pilla. This was somewhat of an early filmmaking challenge for Luke to make a film in one day with no one else apart from actors. This is the result.
