I’ve just heard that the newly released DVD of “Lasseter’s Bones” by Umbrella Entertainment has sold 1000 units in one day – rock on Lasseterians!

I’m wrapped that people are so keen to share in Bob’s incredible story, and watch Luke’s frustration as he follows the trail left by Harold Bell Lasseter more than 80 years ago. I feel very lucky to have been involved in this project and to be a part of the retelling of this story; the chance to travel and film in the Northern Territory was just incredible, it really is like no other place on earth.

Here’s a recent review of the film with Al Cossar on ABC Breakfast.


And another 4 star-tastic verdict from 2UE’s That Movie Shows’ Blake Howard.

“Lassester’s Bones is as much about the illumination of the myth surrounding the man as it is about man’s desire to complete the incomplete and fulfil the unfulfilled. It’s poetic, personal filmmaking.”  Read the full review here.

It looks like even mainstream film media have caught wind of this great film. I was visiting a friend the other day he plonked this onto my lap…

And what should I find inside after further prompting from my cinematographer friend…

"fascinating" says FilmInk!

If you didn’t get to see the film at MIFF or during it’s theatre run last year then get on over to the Umbrella site for your very own DVD with all the extras.

Oh and almost forgot, for those of you with Foxtel, let all and sundry know that its screening on The History Channel later this year, 14 times I think so PLENTY of chances to see it!

Here’s a sneak peek at the opening and some production stills. For more info head over to the Scribble Films’ Lasseter’s Bones site.
