The Void

"The Void" is a six-episode comedy series that had its premiere on 31Digital (channel 44), Brisbane's community television station, in late October, 2011. The show is a "skit-com" about a group of unappreciated young filmmakers trapped by contract on a never-ending (12 years and counting) feature film project called "The Void", under the direction of a woeful, yet inexplicably pretentious twat with a seemingly limitless supply of funding.

The stories revolve around the five underlings – Lu, the drama queen lead actress; Fex, the nerdy editor/visual effects guru; Milly, the down-trodden sound recordist; Ed, the sarcastic camera operator/grip; and Wilton, the brown-nosing gopher. In their endless struggle to appease the constantly-shifting, often illogical whims of Gustaf, their fascist director, they find themselves drifting in and out of tangential fantasies, intertextual parodies and parallel universes. Such are the insanities of independent filmmaking.
