With special effects by ODD Studio, (the boys who made Darth Vader's Helmut for Ep 2), MIDNIGHT SCREENING has screened at festivals all over the world.
The bubbling faces and exploding heads are all in-front-of-camera effects (no CGI). Inspiration came to Annabel at the Sydney Film Festival, when, trying to get a good view of the screen, incredibly tall people kept being drawn to the seat right in front of her.
No matter how many times she moved, it kept happening. Eventually she started fantasising about blowing all their heads off.... and the result was MIDNIGHT SCREENING.
PIGGY - a short comic fable. Screened on SBS over three years.

A short mockumentary starring international star Damon Herriman
Tropfest Finalist 2004
Australian Film Festival - London
CHIPMAN was one of 16 finalists in Tropfest 2004, the largest short film festival in the world, screening to a live audience of over 100,000 people in Sydney alone, and was judged by celebrities such as Salma Hayek. It has also screened at international festivals in London, Toronto and Singapore.
During the filming of the scene where CHIPMAN wanders off to the beach to lure the seagulls away from the picnickers, Annabel had no idea whether the birds would actually go for the giant moving chip. With 2 minutes of film left in the camera, things were quite tense as the crew watched and waited. The greedy nature of the birds did not disappoint, and the giant yellow chip was absolutely mobbed!
