Movies I Have Made...

Movie list created by PvtCaboose91 Avatar

As the title implies, the following movies were made by yours truly. So below I'll provide some detail and videos for each one. I have tackled many more amateur movies, but these are the projects for which I feel are bordering on professional level, a step above the usual standard for my previous backyard productions.

It's exciting to see your movies get added to IMDb, and it's cool that now they can be added to this site. The list will be updated if more projects are undertaken.

Completed Movies

I have made an array of short movies and worked on unfinished films as well. However, I have only added what I consider to be substantial entries to my personal filmography, which means you'll find other minor projects on my YouTube channel. Furthermore, I will only include movies I personally had a significant hand in making.
Sin Begets Retribution...

Plot: After being betrayed by his gang and left for dead after a heist, an enforcer named Dwight sets out to exact revenge, tracking down those who wronged him.


Full Movie

Production Notes & Trivia
- The movie is an expansion of a couple of short animated movies I produced for University in 2011. Said animated movies were essentially Act III of an unseen movie. Rather than using the same plot, I recycled a few elements and re-used the characters, placing them within an all-new story.

- Shot across four filming days in total.

- I produced a DVD and a Blu-ray, both of which I continue to sell to those interested. The releases contains two audio commentaries, a 45-minute production diary documentary, several featurettes, alternate scenes, a gag reel, the original animated movies, and a trailer.

Unleash The Demons On Blu-ray High Definition... (Home Media Tagline)

Plot: During a night of drinking and partying, five college students decide to play with a Ouija board. In the process, however, the invite malevolent spirits, unleashing a brand of terror that none of them are prepared to deal with.


Full Movie

Production Notes & Trivia
- The movie was intended to be a constituent of a horror omnibus, entitled The Midnight Anthology. The original plan was to shoot three horror shorts simultaneously and release them together as a feature, stitched together. But when this movie was completed and the other movies weren't even ready for pre-production, the decision was made to release each movie as they are produced. However, plans for further movies were ultimately scrapped.

- Four nights of principal photography were undertaken, with an additional night to shoot B-roll for the driving montage, and the final scene with Derek.

- The original work-print cut ran an additional two minutes. Most of the additional material involved Derek telling the gang a long joke, but the beat was ultimately cut for timing.

- For Betrayals & Bullets: Hard Retribution, I created the DVD and all the extras. When this movie was released, I called upon a third party to document the shoot and edit a documentary. But the third party did not follow through, and the movie never received a physical media release. However, with my newfound ability to create Blu-rays, I finally went back and created a whole heap of extras; the DVD/BD release contains an 80-minute behind-the-scenes documentary, 30 minutes of cast & crew interviews, two audio commentaries, and the teaser trailer. (The extended work-print cut was also included as a Blu-ray exclusive.)

No Matter How Long You Sink, There's Still A Right And A Wrong

Plot: In the seedy bowls of Lead City, an enforcer named Dwight is shaken by the brutal murder of his girlfriend Leonora, and becomes determined to solve the mystery. Dwight works for one of the city's criminal gangs, overseen by a certain Walter McCarthy. When a shipment of drugs and money is stolen from one of McCarthy's personal couriers, the boss assigns his two best gunmen - Dwight and Shep - to retrieve the stuff and eliminate the perpetrators.

Production Notes & Trivia
- A prequel to Hard Retribution was in pre-production in early 2013, with ideas first being brainstormed as soon as two months after Hard Retribution was released. Creative differences led to it falling through. Other ideas were workshopped in the interim. The finished movie makes heavy use of many elements from the various abandoned script drafts and treatments from 2013.

- My longest shoot to date. The majority of the movie was shot over ten days, with three other shoot days outside of principal photography.

- My first movie for which an original score was written for it.

- My largest budget to date, with up to AUD $1500 being spent on transport, catering, hard-drives for footage, and costumes, not counting the many thousands spent on equipment and props. The entire project was self-funded.

- Officially entered pre-production in June 2015, with principal photography taking place mid-late August.

- The two primary influences for the movie, narratively, are Brick (2005) and Killing Them Softly (2012).

It's Kill Or Be Killed

Plot: After the murder of her brother, federal agent Ashlynn Brindle travels to a small town to look into the matter herself. Uncovering evidence that an unsavoury drug cartel are operating in the town unabated and may have been responsible for her brother's killing, Ash teams up with the mysterious Jimmy Ross to dig into the mystery and seek revenge.

Production Notes & Trivia
- Originally written in late 2013. Four complete drafts were written by April 2014. After the completion of Betrayals & Bullets: The Dame, the project was eventually revived, rewritten, and put into production.

- Inspired by Only God Forgives, Drive and Bullet to the Head, while Sicario served as an influence for all 2016 drafts.

- In excess of AUD $2,000 was spent on the production, for petrol, catering, footage storage, graphic design, poster printing, and other things. The budget figure does not include the cost of film equipment or props.

- Shot in April and May 2016, but not released until October to allow for maximum post-production time. This allowed a third-party colorist to work on the movie, and the composer to create a full original soundtrack.

- Betrayals & Bullets: The Dame director of photography James Huynh was recruited for additional photography & reshoots in June 2016. He also assisted in the editing process and digital effects compositing.

Future Project Ideas

Since these movies are not in production and therefore do not have IMDb pages, I will include placeholder items for the time being. These are projects I am very serious about making, and intend to do so.
The Title? Unleashing the Demons

What's It About?
In this sequel to Inviting the Demons, Derek is released from a mental health ward back into society, five years after his friends all mysteriously died in a matter of hours. Moving in with his cousin April, Derek is convinced that he is possessed by something sinister, and with each passing day, a terrified April begins to believe it.

Production Notes & Trivia
- Represents the official second instalment into The Midnight Anthology, with more instalments planned.

- The originally-planned 2013 "sequel" was a radical change from what Unleashing the Demons will be. It was an entirely different story, tangentially related to Inviting the Demons via a Derek cameo, and it was going to lead into another movie. All of these ideas have been scrapped. Unleashing the Demons is brand new, and a true sequel.

- Much like its predecessor, it will be pitched as a horror-comedy.

Will We Ever See It?
The Title? Untitled Christmas Dramedy

What's It About?
After learning of the sudden death of his elderly mother, Eric and his brother Barry organise to congregate and spend Christmas with their father, Ronald. It's an optimistic meeting, but Eric soon realises he forgot to bring all of his teenage son's presents, and is determined to make the long drive home to pick them up. Accompanied by Barry and Ronald, Eric sets out, while the remaining wives try to keep themselves occupied and Eric's son battles sheer boredom.

Production Notes & Trivia
- The idea was sprung from the disappointment of the film A Merry Friggin' Christmas, which had a great idea and a great cast... But wound up being banal and mostly laughless. I didn't want to simply rip off the same idea, so the whole thing is set in Australia, the tone and content is vastly different, and the story also takes influence from the 2009 movie Charlie & Boots.

- The first draft was started in December 2014 and completed in February 2015. Work soon began on the second draft, but it was put on the backburner to allow for work on Betrayals & Bullets: The Dame. In late 2015, the script was given a rewrite and a spruce up, with several collaborators throwing in their suggestions and helping to enhance the story and comedy.

- Many people feel I should make this a priority since it's such a radical change of pace compared to my previous movies. Besides from the (off-screen) death in the family, nobody is killed, there are no guns, and above all, it would not feature myself. It would also be very low-tech.

- I wanted to shoot it straight after Betrayals & Bullets: The Dame, but felt I should spend more time improving the script.

Will We Ever See It?
More than likely, but it's a matter of timing. With the cast consisting of adults and a grandfather, casting will be tricky, and filming would mostly have to take place at night. Rather than a set amount of shoot nights, it would need to be a continuous production, and since it could run 40-50 minutes, it would take some doing. Then again, it's just dialogue.

I want to get it made. I've put too much effort into the writing process and I like the script too much, it makes me laugh and feel. A lot of the jokes by third parties are too funny not to use. And hey, I lost my father in 2016, so a sweet drama-comedy could be a nice tribute to him.
The Title? Untitled

What's It About?
Two soldiers in Iraq attempt to escape after enemy contact resulted in casualties to their squad. One of the soldiers steps on an IED, but he cannot step off the explosive without detonating it.

Production Notes & Trivia
- This is not, I repeat not my idea. My friend Hayden, who was in Nightfall and B&B, came up with the idea while working on Hacksaw Ridge and came to me for help in writing and producing. I will not be directing it, but I will have a significant hand in the production.

Will We Ever See It?
Hayden is determined to bring the story to life, and I am willing to help him. The release of the movie Mine has somewhat derailed things, however.
