SYNOPSIS

Fear of Fish (Ichthyophobia) 2012 dir. Luke Jurevicius (8 mins)

"An animated comedy series starring Figaro Pho, a quirky and mischievous character who is afflicted with every phobia imaginable. Step inside his absurdly phobic world and embark upon a bizarre and comedic journey.

A piranha fish is wrongly delivered to Figaro's house. A fearful Figaro causes the fishbowl to shatter, leaving the fish gasping for life. Filled with remorse, Figaro turns on the taps in a desperate attempt to save the fish. In so doing, this fills his house with water. Instead of being grateful, the fish becomes a monster with an unquenchable appetite for revenge. Figaro and Rivet are plunged into a deep-sea adventure, which ends with them cornered in Figaro's toilet." Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Fear of Spiders (Arachnophobia) 2012 dir. Luke Jurevicius (1:30 mins)

"Figaro is reading on his favourite chair (the toilet) only to be interrupted by a descending spidery visitor. In a vain attempt to rid of the furry fiend, Figaro Blows the spider away with a gust of breath, only to swallow his worst nightmare on his intake of air." Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Bottersnikes and Gumbles: The Gumbledex 2015 dir. David Webster (11 mins)

"In a faraway forgotten valley, heaped with long abandoned junk, a timeless battle rages between good and evil… and between squashy and scaly, happy and grumpy, clever and wily…handsome and plain old ugly. This is the land of Bottersnikes & Gumbles." Cheeky Little Productions

Erky Perky: Where Are We? 2006 dir. David Webster (12 mins)

"Welcome to the world of Erky Perky - a unique, hilarious and visually rich place in which two bickering, dimwitted and lazy bugs are forced to survive in the new and scary 'Land of Kitchen'." Australian Broadcasting Corporation

The Dukes of Bröxstônia: Mojo 2010 dir. Suren Perera, Stu Connolly (1 min)

"The Dukes of Bröxstônia are the most famous band from Bröxstônia ever. The band is composed of teenagers - singer Arj, drummer Barj and guitarist Larj. And thanks to the generosity of the Bröxstônian government, the Dukes are always on tour, spreading their uniquely punk thrash sounds to an unsuspecting world!

Join Arj, Barj and Larj as they deal with monstrous fans, rival bands, cyborg robots, video game monsters and wild west villains. But remember, what happens on the road, stays on the road." Sticky Pictures

Li'l Elvis and the Truckstoppers: Caught in a Trap 1997 dir. Peter Viska, Jan Van Rijsselberge, Robbert Smit (21 mins)

"Li’l Elvis Jones and the Truckstoppers is an animated comedy adventure series about a boy called Li’l Elvis Jones (Stig Wemyss) who lives in the tiny outback Australian town of Wannapo. Ten years ago, a mysterious gold Cadillac left an old guitar case at Grace 'n’ Len’s Roadhouse. Inside was a baby swaddled in a rhinestone-studded wrap. The world’s most dedicated Elvis fans, Grace (Lynda Gibson) and Len Jones (David Cotter), adopted the boy and named him Li’l Elvis." Screen Australia
