ONE MORE DAY BY ALISSA-ROSE PROBYN: Winner of the People's Choice Award at the Valley Youth Short Film Fest!
Alissa-Rose Probyn is a 17-year-old filmmaker. She studies at St. Columba's College and has taken part in as many film opportunities that the school offers. She has created and directed 2 full movies called 'Escape' and 'Mistaken', involving her friends as the cast. She is in the process of producing 3 short films at the end of the year and looks forward to many more opportunities in the making. She would love to continue in this pathway, taking her skills even further and challenging herself more.
Alissa-Rose’s short film “One More Day” is about Adam, who goes through an emotional journey of his past relationship with Hailey. He remembers being together and his memories go back to times and places throughout Moonee Valley where he had been born and grew up. As he walks down the corridor of dreams he has mixed emotions of happiness and sadness remembering his times together.
OBSESSED by Bari Productions:
Filmmakers Brooke and Ari have been friends since kindergarten. They have both grown up with a strong love for film and have been making short films since 2017.
Brooke and Ari’s film “Obsessed” is inspired by the 2010 hit drama film Black Swan. It follows a young girl, Elizabeth Turner who struggles with OCD. When she is chosen to play the black and white swans in her company's ballet, she becomes obsessed with being perfect and the role takes a toll on her mental health.
Content warning: Please note this short film makes reference to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). If you would like to learn more about OCD or seek support you can learn more here.
Brooke and Ari’s second short film “The Stranger” is about 2 friends. They become each other's roommates, they begin to notice strange hauntings and odd paranormal activity around their new but old house…
Content warning: Please note this short film contains jump scares.
