It's October! Which means Halloween is less than a month away! We're prepping our costumes here at Closer HQ. Matt Vesely has decided he's going to go as John McLane from Die Hard - all blood soaked singlet and no shoes. Not too much of a stretch from his normal weekend attire.
But, more importantly, October is also time for the awesome Adelaide Film Festival to roll into town, opening on the 10th and closing on the 20th. Closer have a number of projects ready to launch, including our first drama feature 52 TUESDAYS and hybrid doco/drama I WANT TO DANCE BETTER AT PARTIES. Sophie, Bryan, Bec, Matt B and Matt C are also esteemed guests of the fest, and will be out and about on the prowl. Come say hi!
