GRANNY SMITH
Tropfest Winner 2014

For those unfamiliar, Tropfest films need to be less than seven minutes and have to touch on a particular theme to make sure they’re original creations for the festival. Winning Tropfest is one of our greatest honours. Our 2014 entry, Granny Smith, took out first prize and we’re incredibly proud of it.

MORALITY ASIDE
brand-2
brand-3

This particular film came about because both Julian and his good friend, Jack White, had similar experiences of colleagues fabricating the death of a family member to get out of work. It didn’t take either of them very long to put aside the obvious immorality of it all and notice that there was potential for a great story built on empathy and humanity – as well as a little morbid fascination.
