Sharks was filmed in Gregson park in Hamilton NSW on the 28th of December 2011. On the day our crew were Ian Selby, Mark Owens and Geoff Peel. We also roped in Col Marshall in to act.( Of course Col was brilliant!) Sharks comes from an old joke Ian Selby and I shared 25 years ago. The ever reliable Mark Owens was our second camera and Geoff was main camera and editor. Geoff had the film all but finished by the next day - including music! Ian Huish contributed again with the 'shark bite' opening sequence. I entered it into the Newcastle Video Makers one minute competition in February. The audience gave it a huge laugh and we won 3rd place - with Ian Huish taking out 1st with his film Clay Army.

This film is my first and only experimental film, it was made in 2011 for another Newcastle Video Makers Club open monthly competition. Mt Sugarloaf is the feature we are swinging around at high speed. Young Actress Libby Cherry does a great job and yet again Ian Huish provides first rate special effects, plus Mark Rippon’s musical score is something else. Incredible.
