Nothing But The Struth is a self funded, independent documentary that commenced filming in July 2006. It is an exploration into the current state and future potential of the Australian film industry. Filming is due to be completed in December 2009. (Ok, it’s 2010, I’m still shooting).
Currently, some of the people interviewed one on one are:

Interviewing a vast range of subjects, from those on the independent fringe to renowned industry figures, the aim of the documentary is to educate, entertain and create debate about the future of filmmaking in Australia. The end result will be inspirational to the new wave of Australian filmmakers.
