On the 10th of May we surprise screened my debut short film 'Bloom Girl' to a casual crowd of 200, across multiple cinemas in Brisbane City. It was a crazy night, with a whole heap of nerves + some very emotional moments- 7 months of planning, 10 days shooting on location in Italy with a small crew I took over there on a tiny budget, and a long ass time in post production (all in total secret) for one helluva finish.
Special thank you to Hendricks Gin for sponsoring the show, The Gresham for hosting our glorious after party and Millie Tang for designing beautiful bespoke cocktails for it. Thank you to the delicious Bart Hassam + Maddie Walsh from Maison Fleur for creating some eye poppingly beautiful florals. Thank you to my beautiful friends Ronnie Dawson (door bitch + best friend extraordinaire), Cameron Parker (who not only started my tiny business four years ago, put up with all my tantrums and break downs, but also kindly flew all the way over from England for it), Madie Sturgess for hosting, producing + being the kind of badass I aspire to be every day, Carla Grant and Ben Andrew- team MeOhMy- for bringing the project to life, Kirstin Payne for painstakingly making a whole heap of costumes for the film + one killer evening gown for the night, my beautiful sister Elly Burrowes for her gorgeous animation, Corinne Manoe for designing all the beautiful branding + props, and my wonderful family for being the kind of supportive most folks would kill for.
And lastly, and most importantly, thank you to the wonderful weirdos who came along and continue to support what I create. You give what I do meaning. x
