There isn’t much that Tracey Birdsall hasn’t done during her career. From appearing in television commericals and modelling through to appearance on some of America’s most popular TV shows – Family Ties and The Young And The Restless. Then there is the fact that Tracey is also an award winning filmmaker.
Seeing Tracey is about to star in two of the most talked about movies of this year – Who’s Jenna Jameson and Robot Fighter – Subculture Entertainment’s Dave Griffiths sat down and had a chat with her.

Bohem Films’ Rob Jacobs and Dane Millerd (Writer/ Director/ Producer of There’s Something In The Pilliga) have teamed up with Sharry Flaherty and the team from Dark Water Productions to bring you the low‐fi mumblecore suspense thriller Are You Scared Yet?
Inspired by films such as The Strangers and Funny Games, the film is currently in re‐production and slated to be shot in the Nevada desert in early 2016.
“The Dark Water team are currently finalising cast, investors and locations,” saidwriter and co‐director of the film Dane Millerd.
“They have been tremendous so far and we can’t wait to work with them!”
For Dark Water Productions, Sharry Flaherty, it is another positive step as the company continues to churn out quality content to their burgeoning international audience. Flaherty has just finished shooting the highly‐anticipated Khali the Killer with 2015 Emmy nominee Richard Cabral from End of Watch and Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones).
“When Black Wolf Media (distributors of There’s Something In The Pilliga/ HalfHuman) contacted us about this crazy script from Australia we jumped at it,” she said.
“It is taut and creepy and we can’t wait to start production on it with the Bohem Media guys!”
The movie examines the lives of Tom and Kat, who’s troubled marriage has reached breaking point when Kat discovers Tom’s infidelity while their son Jonah is on a school field trip. Little do they both know that a terrible twosome known as the Knockturnals have been watching them for weeks, waiting in the wings to invade their home and their lives. What Tom and Kat don’t know is why the Knockturnals have infiltrated their private lives nor do they have any inkling of their real, gruesome intentions.
“Without giving too much away, we are currently talking to some top talent in the US about being involved in the film,” said Millerd.
“This film is going to blow people away!”
Palace Cinemas have announced the arrival of new cat Duke at the iconic Astor Theatre in St Kilda. Following in the paw prints of much-loved ‘Astor cat’ Marzipan, who sadly passed away in March 2013, Duke, a black and white short-haired cat, will make the Astor his permanent home after being adopted from not-for-profit organisation The Lost Dogs’ Home.
Fittingly, given his new address, Duke is named after silver screen legend John Wayne (whose nickname was “Duke”) by avid film fan and the Astor’s General Manager Zak Hepburn. “When we picked him out, he was pretty relaxed and had such a nonchalant swagger that I immediately knew his name should be Duke” says Zak. “Since Palace took over the Astor, there have been so many enquiries as to whether we’d get another cat and while Marzipan is irreplaceable, we thought as this year has marked a new chapter for the Astor, why not give Duke a new chapter in his life? And support a worthy cause like Lost Dogs’ Home” he enthuses.
For over a hundred years The Lost Dogs’ Home cares for more than 30,000 lost and abandoned cats and dogs each year throughout its shelters across Victoria. Senior Veterinarian, Dr Alan Bolton from the organisation says “it is great to see that Duke has gone on to find his new home at the Astor and it shows us that cats are adaptable to a range of different living situations and can fit in at offices and businesses”.
“While it will take Duke some time to settle in properly, we welcome anyone who wants to come in for a coffee and to say hello” says Zak. “Duke has yet to be here for a full film session or double feature, but we’ve got the feeling he’ll like Westerns”, he laughs.
The new Astor Theatre calendar will be available in late August.
The Lost Dogs’ Home can be contacted on (03) 9329 2755
