General-Exhibition

General Exhibition

Produced by Tim Logan

Set in a understandably failing VHS rental store, run by a stubborn dreamer, General Exhibition is the brainchild of Hobart comedian, actor and VHS obsessive, Emesha Rudolf. Emesha has literally thousands of classic VHS tapes and ‘Gen X’ is inspired by cult sitcoms such as Black Books, SPACED and Broad City. Producer Tim Logan (Noirhouse) and Director Sara Pensalfini (Exit, Pursued by a Bear) plan on making it an ongoing series in 2017.

 

Strata’s Best Street Racer

Produced by Michael O’Neill

A fly-on-the-wall comedy documentary series about an 18-year-old’s desperate effort to make a mark on the late night street racing scene in his mum’s ’92 Holden Barina. From picking up chicks to modifying his car Taylor will do whatever it takes to make some friends, all the while taking life one block at a time.

 

Don’t Go There

Produced by Mark Thomson

A historical comedy for primary school kids, Don’t Go There tells the stories they don’t teach you at school, stories that’ll make you go  “Why didn’t I know that before ?”.  Through wacky sketches, irreverent songs and colourful animation, characters from diverse backgrounds tell their own stories. The first episode introduces Mary Wade, transported to NSW at 11 for stealing a dress, and going on to be known as one of the ‘Mothers of Australia’ with over 30,000 descendants.

 

Herman Killer on the Run

Herman: Killer on the Run

Produced by Daniel Peek

In a heartless ruse to make one of the world’s great true crime documentaries, a video guy and his assistant convince the son of a dead TV star that he is a murderer.
