Actors Shane Emmett and Peter Flaherty join the cast of “The fastest white man in the World”

I have known Shane Emmett and Peter Flaherty for pretty much my entire filmmaking career. 20 years ago I made a few promises that I’d cast them in my first feature. Little did I know that would take 20 years. It’s cheeky because now they’re WAY BETTER actors but a promise is a promise. So yes I literally threatened them that they had to be part of the film. They will both be playing Coaches while Peter Norman was starting out in Athletics. This was a great opportunity to finally drag them into this kicking and screaming.

Jason Gann to star in the upcoming “SHACKLE” currently in Development.

It gives me great pleasure to announce JASON GANN is to star in the upcoming film in Development “SHACKLE”. Jason is one of Australia’s funniest comedic actors starring in his own self written comedies “WILFRED”, which not only gained a huge cult following here in Australia but went on to win over American fans in the American version of the series starring Jason Gann and Elijah Wood. Gann is Australias “Michael Keaton”. I’ve loved his work ever since his Tropfest winning film “Wilfred” came about.

Matt Norman to start filmmakers YouTube Channel

For a very long time, I have wanted to start a YouTube channel for filmmakers. I have personally learned a lot from different YouTubers over the years and so I thought I could add my opinion and vast background as a filmmaker to the mix. Most of the YouTube channels I watch do awesome reviews of the different camera gear, lights, recorders, lenses, and film-making gear by giving all the technical data on this gear but don’t just give a simple perspective of how it can be used on a professional or indie film set. That’s where I would like to be different. I want to not only showcase the latest gear but also look at alternatives to the more expensive stuff out there.
