"The year is 1947, an ex-serviceman returns home to Southern California. His old '32 Ford Roadster is removed from the shed, and the guts of a wrecked '39 Mercury sedan are transplanted in, giving more power, braking and top speed, essential for the dry lakes racing career he will embark on. He outfits the motor with products from the growing speed equipment industries catalogues, and races his car against fellow car club members and the clock. The car also serves as daily transport for him in the mild So Cal climate, the loud twin Exhausts upsetting the locals still not used to the returned soldiers need for peacetime thrills. The era immediately following WW2 in Southern California was the time frame and inspiration for me to build an accurate recreation of a stripped down, dry lakes racing, late forties street roadster. Something of a time machine, so that a drive down the street or across the state could become a journey back sixty years. Rancho Deluxe is my full time business, building traditional hotrod classics and components, and assembling period correct cars. The Rancho Deluxe roadster is my expression of a true Hot-Rod, a time machine back to when innovation was hand built, and the true test of man and machine was flat out across the Lakes" -Ben Thomas Owner of Rancho Deluxe Melbourne/ Australia ranchodeluxe.com.au/ The above article taken from: Fuel Magazine Australia Issue No.4 fuelmagazine.bigcartel.com/product/fuel-magazine-issue-04 fuelzine.com Check out another article on Ben Thomas: mrblanc.com/ben-thomas-at-rancho-deluxe/ Director: Tom Broadhurst Director of Photography: Daniel De Silva Assistant Camera Operators Aaron Cuthbert Tom Broadhurst Editor/Color Grading Daniel De Silva Still Photographs Tom Broadhurst Music "Take the A Train by Bass, Bone, Blue" Gemma Boyd gemmaboyd.com soundcloud.com/gemma-boyd Check us out at: banditfilms.blogspot.com/
The Human Fog
Produced by Bandit Films: banditfilms.tumblr.com/ Nominated for best achievement in a screenplay at the 2012 St Kilda Film Festival (Melbourne Australia) Synopsis: Graham hasn't been outside his house for some time, preferring to exist within the solitude of his bunker like home. This morbid self-obsessed existence consists of smoking pot, listening to vinyl and flickering through high-speed Internet porn. With a rich inner narrative Graham ponders the personal anxieties that orbit within his cynical universe. Enter Billy, the unwanted visitor who interrupts Graham's morbid world. Billy is a confused mess, much to Graham's delight and misery.
