Hungry creatives Bayley Broome-Peake Left Haylie Craig Right

Creative industries can be incredibly hard to break into, especially without contacts or mentors in the area.

Hungry Creatives is a project that hopes to bridge the gap between budding creatives and industry professionals through. Currently the project features video interviews with both people trying to make it and people who already have.

Haylie Craig and Bayley Broome-Peake are two of the young creatives behind the project and they joined us to have a chat about the project, where it’s going from here, and even to pitch a film to us.

Bathing Franky

Showing as part of the Summer Scoops Film Festival at the Mercury Cinema, Bathing Franky is all about a young man who steps into the surreal world of Rodney, an older many who cares for his mother full time.

Shot over 20 days on a tight budget the film manages to blur the lines between imagination and reality, exploring the fantastical and the grim.

Owen Elliott, the director of Bathing Franky spoke to us about the film, which manages to blur the lines between imagination and reality.
