Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival

2020 | Television and Online Commercial  | 30 sec

Director | Writer | Co-Producer | Editor : Daniel James

Co-Producer: Rogan Brown

Cinematography: Richard Williams

Cast: Ella Watkins, Anne Cordiner, Adam Ransley

Concept Brief: 


In early 2020, Daniel was approached to produce an engaging narrative-driven concept that focuses on distinct characters that represent the age demographic BOFA aims to involve in their 2020 festival. Each concept focuses on the ‘time in a life’ moment of three protagonists:

  • a passionate filmmaker desperate to find an audience for her film,

  • a millennial caught up in the rat race of the city who is desperate for a new perspective on life, and

  • a semi-retired woman, lonely and desperate to make new friends.


Each of these characters is wanting to make a change in their lives. This is brought about by the arrival of a red carpet that appears out of nowhere. Each character follows the carpet, leading them through Tasmanian landscapes (e.g. rivers, forests, streets). Throughout the journey, each character connects with others who have followed the red carpet, finally arriving at a BOFA “red carpet event”.
