Actors Jack White & Steve Vizard star in short film Granny Smith - Winner of Tropfest 2014

Wednesday, 10 December 2014 05:29

A black comedy about chucking a sickie at work has taken the top prize at the prestigious Tropfest film festival in Sydney.

Congratulations to our Actor Jack White who co-wrote and starred in the Tropfest 2014 winning film Granny Smith. Congratulations also go to Steve Vizard who stars in this short film.

Granny Smith tells the story of a man who fakes his grandmother’s death in order to get time off work to recover from a hangover. He is then forced to carry on with the elaborate ruse when his boss, played by Steve Vizard, asks to attend the funeral.

Melbourne-based director Julian Lucas, 27, said he didn’t have to look too far for the film’s inspiration. “Jack, who’s one of my really good mates who I write with, he called me up, and he goes ‘mate I’ve got this idea’,” Mr Lucas told the ABC. “He actually told me that he rocked up to work and gave that exact same sort of lie about why he was late. “It’s awful, but it’s like yeah, this could go somewhere.” As the winner, Mr Lucas will fly to Los Angeles for one week to meet with film executives.

He will also take home swag including a Toyota Corolla, $10,000 in cash and a Nikon camera. Judge Kat Stewart said Granny Smith was the highlight of a very strong field of entrants. “I think it’s OK for me to say that there weren’t many points between the final few,” Stewart said.
