A couple of years ago I joined a tight knit crew of “The Bus Knight” as the editor and visual effects artist. After a few weeks in post-production the Brisbane based short film was complete and launched its way into national festivals.
The Bus Knight is a story based off one of Reddit’s most popular posts, written by a local comedian. It is a story about a sole bus passenger standing up and defending a racist attack on a bus driver and his passengers. The story revolves around the principles of Aikido, fighting without fighting.
The short film was selected to appear in 5 festivals including The ScreenIt Film Festival, Capricorn Film Festival, St Kilda Film Festival, Backyard Film Festival and West End Film Festival. The film took home a total of 5 awards including Best Film and several Audience Choice Awards.
It was a pleasure to work closely with the director Tony Walsh from Stranger Films and cinematographer Brian Lowe to create such a well polished and popular short.
After a successful run the crew has decided to release it for all online to enjoy, so we present you The Bus Knight...
