There are a thousand weird untold stories in the Australian film industry, this has been one of them.
Now both my films have been number one at the Australian box office and it took about two years just to get the finance for this film, so if it's hard for me then God help everyone else.
Movies are a complicated collision of literature, theatre, music and all the visual arts.
Three years after starting, by physically doing everything from raising the finance to special effects, we'd finally cobbled together our low budget film.
So we have to be careful because if you don't protect your culture you won't have it for very long.
