On Tuesday 22nd August, Docuverse will be hosting David Bradbury and screening his rough-cut edit of his new film, The Darkest Hour.
The film will be screened in: Building 80, level 4, room 11. Please arrive at 6.30 for a 6.45 start. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation of attendance or any questions.
This rough-cut is NOT yet finished but is a great opportunity to see the documentary editing process in action as well as to speak with one of our best practitioners and give him valuable feedback before he goes back into the edit room with editor Walter McIntosh.
David Bradbury, one of Australia’s most respected documentary filmmakers took his family to the US last year. Tired of constant rejection by ABC Factual and SBS Independent, his plan was to see if he could break into a bigger fish pond (Netflix, HBO, Sundance, Stan, Amazon etc). He quickly deduced it was not possible beyond committing several years of struggle to break in from the outside as a Newcomer. Too many other hungry American indie filmmaker’s mouths to feed. So he did the next best thing. And what he liked to do most. He decided to shoot a film about what he was seeing three months out from the shock election of Donald Trump.
