Director Statement

DropScare started out as a student project both Co-Writer and Producer Maia Matthews and I wrote for one of our courses at University, it originally was going to be centred around found footage of 4 Vloggers out in the bush on the search for Drop Bears. However, after facing obstacles through production, Maia and I had to rewrite the whole script eight hours before our next shoot. That night we wrote what is now DropScare, the interactive web series, where the audience feels included in the experience. I proposed the camera to be what the audience would see, so each person felt they were there with the CAVI Gang.

DropScare became so much more than a mark for a University assignment, but a project I’m so immensely proud of and it’s because of the committed actors, the hard working crew, the organisation from the producer Maia and my direction this project wouldn’t have been as successful as it turned out to be. All the difficulties we faced on this production were for a reason, as it ended up pushing Maia and I to both work harder and revaluate the end product. Without these challenges and obstacles DropScare wouldn't be the masterpiece it’s now become.
