Bec's going to Toronto!

Closer's very own producing wunderkind Rebecca Summerton is heading to Toronto as we speak! 


Bec is one of only two Australian's selected for the exclusive Producer's Lab, where she'll be learning about things and pitching things and meeting things (people) and all kinds of things.


You can read about all that kinda stuff here.


Have fun Bec! See you real soon! Send us a picture or something!



We're super excited to announce that Closer Productions' latest short 'My Best Friend is Stuck on the Ceiling'  will be having its world premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival in October! 


Featuring Tom Ward (from ABC's hit comedy 'Please Like Me') and Erin James (AACTA nominated for her role in 'The Little Death'), 'Ceiling' is a romantic comedy with a bit of sumthin-sumthin added in for good measure...


Partnering with local post wunderhouse Kojo Pictures and financed by South Australian Film Corporation and the Adelaide Film Festival, the film is written & directed by Closer's third Matt (Vesely) and produced by Sophie Hyde and new friend of Closer Christine Williams. Thanks also to the radical dudes at Carclew Youth Arts that supported the film's development.


The film shot for four days on location at Entropy cafe in Thebarton (seriously good eatin' y'all we recommend) with a top notch SA crew. Matt listened to a lot of emo to get prepared for it (cos he listens to a lot of emo, like, all the time) but we swear it's mostly about the lolz. 



We're deep into post pushing for that premiere at Adelaide Film Festival in October, and you can check out the info here. See you there!




Connor, secretly in love with his best friend Rach, has gotten her a pretty cool birthday present. Something that’s sure to knock her off her feet. But, when things take a sharply peculiar turn, Connor begins to wonder whether he would have been better off just getting a gift voucher...
