I'm Having A Show

Yes, that's right, you read correctly. I'm having my own show.

19th of August, 7pm, FTI Cinema.

More than 3 years after my Pudding Dreams premiere, I'm returning to the big screen. It's a fairly exstensive anthology of my work as an artist, with 6 of my short films and references to other smaller and older works.

The show has an approximate running time of 100 minutes, but since its a one off live show, who knows how long its going to go. The show is a fundraiser for my new project, City of Lights. Partial funds will also go towards the Project Respect organisation. Tickets are $20 and you can purchase tickets by emailing me: info[at]jimmerish.com

It will be a galactic premiere for three of the short films. Here are some posters for you to peruse.

Pudding Dreams was my "Film School" short film. I put it all on the line with this film, trying to see what it was possible to do with lots of equipment but little knowledge. However, I had no idea what I was doing and the script didn't do my story justice. I'm still very proud of this film however, since I met all my filmmaking goals.

Bennett is a young man who uses alcohol as a way of escaping reality. One drunken night he has an experience that he will never forget. His heart will be tested when it is most vulnerable. Will this fantasy inspire him or only haunt him forever once he returns to everyday life?

The Great Embrace is the first film I produced by myself outside of film school. The script was more of a trailer for a feature length film I was writing at the time. After the rigors of film school I wanted to try and create something technically awesome with a very low budget, with a very small crew and in a very short period of time.

Although I was still lacking confidence about what I could put in a script and get actors to perform and bring it in on budget, I enjoyed the experience.

Sebastian, a young man in his late twenties, reflects on the most important moments of his youth in the interview of a lifetime. Premiere!

The Visit, written by Patricia Gamero, was my first film I directed outside of film school and the one and only film i have made that I have not written.

"The Visit" is a mature drama that highlights an important social issue, the occurrence of human trafficking and sexual servitude in Australia, a topic that has been highlighted recently in both the media and in the Australian Parliament. It's taken me a long time to get up the confidence to show this film, but finally it is here. Premiere!

The Big Woo. I wrote, shot and edited The Big Woo within 48 hours.

I had film and hold the boom myself so it's not great quality but this was the first film I felt I could spread my wings as a screenwriter and push the actors to perform as director

Emilio needs to win over the girl of his dreams. To do so, he decides to team up with Justin Timberlake.

The Dark Chill is a project I made in my backyard on a whim testing out some ideas.

The Dark Chill is a short motion picture project conceived by three of the brightest minds in the entertainment industry. Written, blocked, and filmed on the fly with little concern for rehearsal, plot, continuity, or copyright a truly remarkable work of art has been produced. The filmmakers Alex, Calum and James have completely revolutionised the way films are produced and the medium will never be thought of in the same way again. So put the sound up, sit back, relax and enjoy the modern masterpiece that is: THE DARK CHILL

Shadow of the Seraph, my longest film. This was an attempt to make a film noir "B-Movie". Although I'm not a huge fan of the genre, it was a fun movie to make as a producer.
