A mate of mine, Paul Murphy, has just finished an indie film he wrote and starred in – it’s called “Hobby Farm” and it’s a dark and gritty Aussie gangster film. Violence? Oh there’s violence. And blood. What about flared jeans? Yes, there are plenty of those. It’s set in the 70’s after all.
Anyway, not only was it Murphy’s brainchild, and not only did he star in it, he also did a lot of the running about to secure all the money from investors to make the film in the first place. He (and director Brad Diebert) got some pretty well-known Aussie actors to star in it, and even got the film scored by Andrew giddings of JETHRO TULL. All up, the whole thing has been a monumental task, I’m telling you. The poor boy. After all the effort, he looks like he has cancer or something.
Anyways, hopefully I can help spread the word a little bit, to support independent cinema and all that. If you have a minute, go check out the trailer at http://www.hobbyfarmthemovie.com.au/
