“Ruby is a fixer. She travels through time solving problems and collecting souls.
She offers a simple deal. Do something for Ruby and she’ll do something for you. She’ll fix your problem. No matter how difficult, illegal or expensive.
Fail to carry out the task or follow the terms and conditions of the deal and you lose. Big time.
And everyone loses.”
7 Episode (7 to 12 minutes each) Web Series to be filmed in Sydney in late November. High production values, fast moving, sexy and sultry. Top flight young DOP, excellent opportunity for actors wanting a dark, gritty role to expand their repertoire.
Set in multiple different time zones and locations but with one common denominator – people so desperate they are prepared to risk their souls.
Dark, gritty, sexy and violent is the world Ruby lives in, and usually that’s fine.
From global financial collapses, world wars, gang wars and family crisis Ruby is there to fix whatever dark shit you’ve managed to get yourself into, but the price is high.
Are you ready to pay?

M A M M O N – 2016 Test Shoot
Wealth regarded as an evil influence or false object of worship and devotion.
This is a test scene shot during my Graduate Diploma at AFTRS, inspired partly by a lecture we attended on Magical Realism.
Given that I had and amazing Cinematographer and Designer to work with I decided to create a detailed and lavish world within to set the action.
My goal was to work with the cast and crew to reveal the message of the film through subtext rather than narrative.
This is a “Director’s Cut” of the film responding to feedback after the film was submitted for grading.
Eric Bateman needs cash, a lot of it, and he needs it now.
What he needs to buy with it is not only difficult to procure but highly illegal.
Only enigmatic club owner Ruby seems to be able to deliver but at what cost?
So many people sell their souls to borrow money for things that they don’t want to show off to people who they don’t care about.
What would happen if someone sold their soul for a completely selfless purpose?
What would motivate you to sell your soul?
These are the primary themes of the screenplay and drive the narrative.
