Director Statement

The script of Bondi Slayer made me laugh out loud as I was reading it and that specifically was what drew me to work on the project. I was super excited to make a series with a kickass female protagonist. She's both strong and struggling, likeable and kind of a brat, and audiences will relate to her because of these strengths and flaws. I love working in a genre space, as it offers us a remove to reflect on the world and our own lives with less judgment. Bondi Slayer does just that - its sharp tone and witty dialogue as well as sick fight scenes and vampire deaths all culminate in a hilarious, entertaining series that hits the mark.
