Friends of Mine – Post-Production

In this uniquely talky, witty, and slightly shmaltzy short film, a wannabe cultural-critic gets stuck in a one-sided love affair with an older woman, while his secret admirer plots to make her feelings clear to him.

‘Friends of Mine’ is a short romance/comedy/drama about how we communicate feelings of unrequited love. It depicts the Australia that we’re familiar with but don’t see on-screen; where people deal with conflict through words, and where your entire emotional being can be staked on a critical essay, painting, or one-woman play.

This Australian Film Television and Radio School Master of Arts Screen graduating project is being written and directed by Andréas Giannopoulos with producer Braiden Asciak, cinematographer Ehran Edwards, and editor James A. Thomas.

Shot in Melbourne this past Autumn on Super 16 film, ‘Friends of Mine’ features emerging talent Alex Donnelly (as Lou), Chi Nguyen (as Elena), and Emily Joy (as Sylvie), against the real-life backdrops of Fitzroy’s Babka Bakery Café, Triple R’s East Brunswick studios, Northcote’s Neighbourhood Books, and Clifton Hill’s Darling Gardens.

WHAT WILL YOU BE CONTRIBUTING TO?

The film is ready for post-production, and our team are seeking financial assistance to complete it.

Your tax-deductible donations raised through the ACF will go towards sound design, including ADR, and colour grading. A striking sound and grade will help shape the tone and story of ‘Friends of Mine’, taking this film one step closer to completion and distribution.

A small amount of what we intend to raise will also go towards festival submissions, where we hope to broaden our audience and further develop our own storytelling and filmmaking abilities as emerging screen creators in Australia.
