Blood Siblings: The Way of the Brick - short film

Another project created for the 48 Hour Film Project (Melbourne) in 2013, again with our corporate alter-egos, Ready to Roll.  

Our genre was martial arts, our prop was a brick, the character we had to include was Sally Dawkins (a photographer), and the line of dialogue was 'There's another way to do it, you know...'

The result was this fairly ridiculous short film which was selected for the Top 12 Finalists, as well as being nominated for Audience Choice, Best Sound Design, Best Score, and winning Best Actor for Genevieve Morris.
