“Heavy Heist” is a classic heist comedy where three mates go to rob a pub on race day, Directed by Peter Spann. Portly Chris is considered too chubby for his dream role of counter jumping by self elected leader Damo, however with the unlikely support of a female hostage he rises up to prove himself worthy.
This buddy comedy was filmed as a Major Student Project during my Diploma of Screen and Media at Sydney Film School. It is filmed on 16mm Kodak film.
I believe it shows my skills as a Director in managing a complex (for a student film) shoot with up to 18 crew and 14 cast on location and even though they were cut up in the edit we achieved three of the “marque” scenes in one shot.
The film was selected to be shown on the Graduating Students night of the SFS Festival and was nominated for Best Part 1 Film and I was nominated for Best Director. The crew won Best Producer, Best 1AD, and nominations were received for Best Edit and Best Cinematography.
