Dinner with Donna

When Bob meets Donna for dinner he is hoping for romance but Donna has something entirely different in mind. A twisted tale of bad science, bad food and a very bad possum.

Director Biography - Andrew Robb

Originally from Canberra, Andrew worked for several years as an actor in the UK, playing challenging roles such as 'Mr. Bruce the Aussie Tourist' on The Basil Brush Show. He also produced the cult hit Australian comedy 'The Vegemite Tales' in London's West End before moving back to settle in Melbourne's Sunshine.

Andrew has been making short films for the past ten years. His quirky films tell simple stories with a common thread – usually managing to warp the laws of physics and nature. He takes inspiration from Mel Brooks and David Zucker. Credits include the award winning documentary short TOFU MAN (nominated for best doco, St Kilda Film Festival 2014) and the short no-dialogue comedy COOK BOOK.

Director Statement

Dinner with Donna takes inspiration from Mel Brooks and David Zucker. As a kid I watched a lot of Maxwell Smart, Top Secret and Police Squad. Silly things happened and they made me laugh.
