In 2010, before anyone had really heard of Kickstarter, Enzo Tedeschi and Julian Harvey of Distracted Media hit upon a new way to make an independent film: selling frames of the film to a potential audience, raising the funds to get the film made. This was called the 135K Project, and the film was The Tunnel, a harrowing subterranean exploration of the abandoned tunnels under the Sydney CBD.

For the launch of Kickstarter to Australian creators, Distracted Media has launched another project using a similar model: Airlock, a three-part sci-fi thriller about the perils of hubris.

We met with Tedeschi to talk about his project, Aussie independent film-making and crowdfunding — then and now.
