NOISE (Feature Film)

After the success of Roy Hollsdotter Live, Writer/Director Matthew Saville returns with the visceral feature film 'Noise'.
Set in Melbourne's outer suburbs, Noise is a black comedy about a disaffected young cop and the slightly excentric people who surround him. The film explores the ripple effect that occurs across a city in the aftermath of a mass murder that occurs on a suburban train.

Critically acclaimed and beautifully captured, Noise is a strong evolution of the same formula that made Roy Hollsdotter Live so easy to watch. Noise was produced by Retro Active Films and released in Cinemas (and DVD) by Madman.

Chroma were commissioned to produce several VFX shots for the film including a CG helicopter sequence that appears in its closing scene. Opening titles were also produced by Chroma.

THE KING (TeleMovie)

Set in the 1950's and 70's in Melbourne, The King follows the rise of one of Australia's best loved TV personalities, Graham Kennedy, played by Stephen Curry. Directed by Matthew Saville and produced by Fremantle Media, The King is a bittersweet tale of fame and isolation against the background of postwar Melbourne.

Shot in S16, The King oozes Saville's trademark visual style, emotional storytelling and intrinsically Australian flavour.

The film featured opening titles and branding by Chroma in addition to several VFX shots and other post production work.
*UPDATE - Congratulations to Matt and the whole team for their recent win at the 2007 AFI Awards. The King brought home shiny things for: Best Direction, Best Lead Actor and Best TeleFeature.
