The Hunter is a 10-minute short film, filmed in Lysterfield National Park, Victoria. It is a cautionary tale about two young indigenous people who discover that ‘something’s out there..a creature from the lakes and the creeks…it waits and watches…it tricks and lies….and then it attacks’.
The creature that we created is essentially never revealed in the finished film as we decided it was more powerful to have this enigma reside in the audience’s imagination.
