Three Summers Film Holdings
When Keevey (26), the lead singer of a popular Irish folk band “The Warrikins”, meets Roland (30), a self righteous and somewhat eccentric theremin player, at a rural folk festival, sparks begin to fly. Their blossoming romance forms the backdrop to a series of interweaving festival stories as we see how the characters change from one summer to the next. Among them is Henry (70) a grieving grandfather who runs the local Morris Dancing troupe, Eamon (65), Keevey’s father and founder of The Warrikins; and Jack (50), a Noongar didgeridoo player. Keeping them all in line is Queenie (50), the community radio announcer, who sees the same old confrontations year after year and thinks it’s high time we found ways to embrace our differences and all learn to get along. Written and directed by renowned comedian Ben Elton, Three Summers is a comedy about a community who discover they have much more in common than their taste in music.

Working with a WA Crew
“Great to work with a set of WA film professionals who are always eagerly engaged when production gets up or comes to town.”
“There’s a real efficiency in a crew who not only know each other socially but also have numerous runs on the board professionally – a crew who through circumstance have great familiarity and have weathered the economy of both their state’s wider economy and the ups and downs of local production sufficiently to have truly honed themselves a niche and developed an efficient shorthand in working together.”

Filming in WA
My first trip to WA was when I was 2nd AC on feature “Japanese Story”, I was very lucky to work on up in the Pilbara with Sue Brooks and DP Ian Baker
It was an awesome experience going to that part of the world. I’d never really known much about WA until I went there and was completely in awe of how amazing the spaces are and how the light looks.
