FRAMED AT MONSTER FEST – THE BLOOD LUST AND TRUE GRIT OF JON HEWITT
When Jon Hewitt and co-director Richard Wolstencroft first spewed out BLOODLUST in the early 90s, it was the proverbial turd in the cinematic punchbowl. “A film shot on video? NEVER!” they cried! Not one to pander to the status quo, Hewitt’s career has continued over three decades, and to this day he remains true to his great love for genre cinema.
This is an incredible opportunity to look in depth at the career of one of this country’s most committed and passionate genre fiends. Jon has done it all! Self financed, private financed, government financed, not financed. Sold internationally, debuted internationally, from MUFF to TIFF and almost everywhere in between.
If you really want to know what it takes to have a career in the biz, then you should be clamouring to explore the career of one of Australia’s finest genre stalwarts.
