I’ve just finished two awesome weeks on the road shooting with Nick Calpakdjian (Animus Industries), for the up and coming documentary Metal Down Under (A History of Heavy Metal in Australia). I had a lot of fun meeting the fans and kingpins in the Aussie Metal scene and I am really looking forward to this doco coming together.

Below are just a few stills from some of the interviews and footage completed for the Australian East Coast leg of the shoot.

This isn’t going to be a shaky-cam MTV colour piece or a Today/Tonight investigative report. Viewers interested in the Australian music scene are going to be treated to a intimate look at the transformation of music and sub-cultures in Australia over the last 30 years. It’s a film about identity, ‘success’ in the Australian music industry and of course why lovers of metal…love their metal!
