Hey everyone – hope you enjoy what we do over here at Any Cam. We’ve just launched a Kickstarter for a feature-length documentary that takes our philosophy of positivity about Australian film to the next level! We need your help to spread the word about the beginning of a new Golden Age in Australian film making.
Our project is a feature length documentary called Tall Poppies.
Tall Poppies is an optimistic documentary response to the current critical, industry and cultural opinion that something is inherently ‘wrong’ with the Australian film industry. It posits that Australia has, throughout the history of cinema, experienced cycles of exceptional quality productions followed by a period of critical and commercial flops, and that as we enter the middle of the 2010s, the Australian film industry is experiencing a return to form of sorts, the end of a weak period and the beginning of a strong.
Take a look at our Kickstarter page here.
We want to produce a 90 min documentary for theatrical distribution, along with 4 x 30 min TV episodes to go to air. The bulk of the content will be interviews with filmmakers, actors, commentators, journalists, funding bodies, distributors and cultural gate-keepers, as well as overlay from the most exciting and relevant Australian films we can get our hands on.
