PRODUCER
THE LITTLE DEATH (2014)
Starring Josh Lawson, Bojana Novakovic, Damon Herriman, Lisa McCune, Kim Gyngell, Lachy Hulme and Ben Lawson. Directed by Josh Lawson.

A darkly comic look at the perverse lives of “ordinary people”. It looks at what happens to a couple when a fetish drives them into dark, unexpected and hilarious places. A woman with a rape fantasy and a man’s struggle to please. A man who starts an affair with his own wife without her knowing anything about it. A woman trying to love a man who loves himself. A woman who can only find pleasure in the pain of her husband. A call centre operator caught in the middle of a dirty phone call. And the distractingly charming new neighbour who links them all together.
