Sydney-based independent filmmaker Eddy Bell met me on Zoom, smiling with a kind of quiet delight in what would be a two-hour chat about his very roundabout path towards filmmaking. Eddy was so lucid – in a way that made me marvel that I am actually in this world of very expressive people – as he described the themes behind his new short film “Giants”, and his previous award-winning film “Grey Bull”. He also talked about his black comedy series in the works, “One Of Us!”
Eddy is so fired up about this generation of creatives and the era we operate in. If you are sitting in a quiet place writing that screenplay, or even mulling the idea for one, read the interview with Eddy on The Occasion #3 and be inspired.
