“When you’re directing a music video or a short film, you’re constantly in a state of panic. On a feature film, you get to know the crew and everyone gets to know how to work with each other. You get to try new things each day. I guess it’s much like doing a sprint as opposed to running a marathon. You have to pace yourself. I like the fact that you can get your momentum up and you get into the rhythm of things.”

“Some weeks are harder than others and some days are harder than others, but the further that I got into it, the easier it got. You come to realise that once you shoot something, you can’t go back and fix it. During the first two weeks of shooting, I was thinking, ‘I never want to do this again!’ [Laughs] But it was a good experience overall and I want to make more films.”

–  Nash Edgerton on the difference between shooting a short film and a feature, and reminiscing about shooting his first feature film (“The Square”)

🎥 My Favorite Short Films: The Last Time I Saw Richard (2014) 🎥

In 1995, Jonah is proud to be the loner at the teen mental health clinic. But when a new patient, Richard, is admitted and the boys are forced to share a room, Jonah finds himself forming a connection despite himself. But will their bond be strong enough to protect them from the darklings that hide in the night shadows?

Genre: Fantasy, Horror, LGBTQ

Country: Australia

Language: English

Taking a day off from aesthetics to share with you all one of the best short films I’ve ever seen. It combines two of my favorite genres in film, Horror and LGBTQ, which I think are not very often paired together. It also discusses mental health. If you have some time to spare, I highly recommend watching it. 💜

Nash Edgerton’s hilariously sick 2007 short film “Spider” is a recognised classic of the genre, winning numerous awards and still serving as a frequent teaching tool at film schools around the world. When asked where idea for the film came from, Nash simply says:

“[It] was an idea that popped into my head that wouldn’t go away. it would constantly plague my thoughts and eventually started to drive me a little crazy, so I knew I had to get it out of my head and make it so I could make room for other ideas. And, yeah, it was based on a number things that happened growing up – fights with girls in cars; a toy rubber spider I used to scare my Mum with; an incident in a car with my brother and I and a real spider on the freeway; and my Mum (like a lot of Mums) saying, ‘It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.’”

If you haven’t seen this short film Break Free by Ruby Rose yet, you must! It’s about gender roles, trans, and what it is like to have an identity that deviates from the status quo.

Cutting my hair and donating it had been one of the best decisions I made. It feels so liberating. It’s a loud “This is who I am and I don’t give a fuck what you think” without having to say anything at all… and I fucking love it!

Oh if you're looking for bad movies just look up Italian Spiderman, guaranteed laughter from that.

…Oh my god.

I thought 70′s Japanese Spiderman was an oddity, but this is a thing of majesty

Italian Spiderman is actually an Australian short film created in 2007 as a parody of Italian action films from the 60′s-70′s.

The fact that it’s so laughably cheesy means that it’s totally spot-on in its endeavor.

The last #WerewolfWednesday post for today comes from the 2013 Australian short film “Swallow”. I think I want to see it just because of this description from it’s IMDb page: “What happens when a gay priest dates a werewolf and the homophobic neighbors come knocking?” Jay Bowen is the lucky actor who gets turned into a werewolf.
