LOVE'S BITTER
MYSTERY

  • Vimeo

Written & Directed by JAK SCANLON

IN PRODUCTION - SHORT FILM - Drama

SYNOPSIS
A Scott always had a turbulent relationship with his brother. Now he is faced with having to compose a speech for a person he felt he hardly knew. In his search for the right words, he finds something more meaningful.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Scene Studio's most recent short film is Scanlon's second exploration of the concepts of grief as a writer and director. "I am making this film as an exploration of grief, it’s not a representation of it as we all experience it in a different way, this is just one possible way. "

The project is currently being crowdfunded via Indiegogo where you can contribute to the film's creation.

Written & Directed by CARLY WILDING

2022 - FEATURE - Biopic

SYNOPSIS
Set in an the atmospheric post-gold-bloom mansion Villa Alba in Kew, Love's Bitter Mystery focuses on a critical year in the young author James Joyce's life and how he used (and changed) episodes from his own life in his novels, 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' and 'Ulysses'

ABOUT THE PROJECT
This film was originally conceived to be staged as a live immersive production in Melbourne in 2020. However, as the pandemic did with so many live works, it was continuously postponed into early 2022. Two weeks before opening night, due to public health concerns, the last-minute decision was made to turn the staged piece into a film.
Filming began on the 2nd of February, 2022, exactly one hundred years to the day Ulysses was published in Paris. Filming was completed in six days, with a totally production period of four months.
