Twin Filament

Twin Filament is a visual poem brought to life by Benjamin Bellette and Lena Matienko, a dynamic Cinematographer and Composing duo.

This short film invites the audience on a journey into a world of intrigue and introspection, as it prompts us to delve into the inner radiance within us.

The creation of this film was a collaborative effort, and we extend our gratitude to everyone who made it possible. Our talented cast, Paige Gibson and Rachael May, brought the story to life with their captivating performances as the dancing twins. The team also included talented professionals such as Serena Yu, our choreographer, and Eli Challenger, who served as the First Assistant Director. Finally, we would like to thank Natalie Verriest for her exceptional direction, which allowed for the full expression of creativity and showcased the performance in a remarkable light.

I'm Good OST

‘Nebulae’ brings together Lena’s captivating piano playing with Fransoafran‘s atmospheric orchestral strings to create a haunting and eerie piece that stands on the edge of a mysterious and grand soundtrack.

Reunion OST

Surviving the trials of 2020-21, we persevered and came out stronger. Kudos to the talented team behind the film, ‘Reunion’.

Reunion follows a lovesick young man who reunites with his oblivious long-distance boyfriend on a whirlwind summer holiday. His reality and expectations collide, and he must search for what he needs within himself.  Fellow alumni Simon Croker stars in the film, alongside Zoran Jevtic, Ariadne Sgouros, and Sam Marques.

Happy New Year

2019 ended on a black note in Australia. Fires raging across half the nation and ash falling from the sky. New Year was a time of hope and new beginnings. A chance to leave the horrors of the fires behind and embrace the prosperity of 2020.

Well, we all know how that went… 

This song was written to embrace that fleeting feeling of hope that we all felt,  before it all came crashing down…
