For anyone who missed it first time around, our documentary on the dedicated homicide detectives who brought Jill Meagher’s killer to justice is getting re-screened by the ABC this Tuesday at 8:30pm. It’s being repeated in light of our Logie win for Most Outstanding Factual or Documentary Program last week.
Both Conviction and Body Hack were nominated in the the peer voted category ‘Most Outstanding Factual or Documentary Program’, and Body Hack was also nominated for ‘Best Factual Program’. Congrats to all involved in both productions, particularly the Director / Producer of Conviction Terry Carlyon, and Chris Thorburn, series producer of Body Hack!
Todd Sampson’s Body Hack begins tonight! 9pm on Network TEN and WIN regionally each Tuesday for the next 6 weeks.
Tonight, Todd gets punched. A lot…

Looks pretty good doesn’t it!

Stunning documentary Conviction by Terry Carlyon screening shortly on ABC. A real privilege to have written the music for this one. Very powerful and moving film, “an intense and riveting study of what it takes to solve a high-profile and emotionally charged murder, told through the eyes of the homicide detectives who brought Jill Meagher’s killer to justice”.
In Adelaide? Only 9 tix left for the SA screening of Freedom Stories on Wednesday 24th February, 6:30 pm @ Palace Nova. Spread the word, support our film and demand your own screening via Fan-Force too! Grab them here.
Synopsis: Freedom Stories is an exploration by filmmaker Steve Thomas of the achievements and struggles of former ‘boat people’. Now Australian citzens, they arrived seeking asylum from the Middle-East around 2001 – a watershed year in Australian politics sparked by the Tampa affair and Prime Minister John Howard’s declaration: “We will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances in which they come”. Some were only children when they found themselves in indefinite mandatory detention in remote places such as Woomera or Nauru and then placed on temporary protection visas, which extended their limbo for years. It has taken astonishing resilience and over a decade for them to build secure lives and start contributing to their new country. These are ordinary people who found themselves caught up in the extraordinary consequences of political brinkmanship but have long since dropped out of the media spotlight. They live among us now and given the Government’s boast that it has ‘stopped the boats’ it is time for their voices to be heard.
