Principal photography on 1%, the feature debut of Stephen McCallum, has begun in Western Australia.
1% was the recipient of Screenwest’s West Coast Visions fund earlier this year, which aims to uncover, inspire and develop local talent and skills.

Josh Pomeranz, Viv Scanu, Phil Hunt, Compton Ross and Stephen Boyle are Executive Producers.
1% is a fictional tale set within the primal underworld of outlaw motorcycle club gangs delving into the themes of brotherhood, loyalty and betrayal. It follows the heir of the throne of a motorcycle club, Iron Horse MC, who has to betray his president to save his brother’s life. Joining Nable in the cast is Ryan Corr, Abbey Lee, Josh McConville, Simone Kessell and Aaron Pederson.
Director Stephen McCallum directed several award winning short films that have screened around the world. Stephen has also worked significantly in the commercial world.
1% will be producer Jamie Hilton’s third production to shoot in Western Australia in under a year, following Breath and Ben C Lucas’ OtherLife, which was also a Ticket to Ride production.
The five-week WA shoot will wrap on December 16 and post will be completed in Sydney at Spectrum.
Hounds of Love, Blame, These Final Hours, and Wasted on the Young are other films that have received West Coast Visions funding, which have all had great success on the national and international festival stage.
