Two best friends are on a mission to find drugs for Stereo.
WHO WE ARE-
Hell, there are no rules here – we’re trying to accomplish something.
Thomas A. Edison
A team of diverse filmmakers who are looking to create something new, different and outside of the norm.
We came together because we all want to make things happen and have exciting stories to tell. We are sick of seeing the same old shit spewing out of Hollywood – we want to see something weird and different, and more importantly we want to see something Australian made.

WHAT WE NEED:
Jeffbro – Jeffbro is the somewhat straight faced leader of the duo. He cares deeply about his appearance, his friends, his family, and most importantly Stereo, his all-time favourite festival. Whilst he does have an affinity for drugs, he is mostly concerned with making the most of his Stereo experience with his best buddy Kevin. Jeffbro works hard at the gym so that his muscles will be in check for all his #Stereo posts, and has worked even harder to ensure that his beloved Mother never finds out about his drug use habits. Out of the two best friends, Jeffbro is the hustler that works hard to ensure that they stay out of trouble and focused on Stereo.
Kevin – Kevin is the multilayered, somewhat deluded underdog of the pair. It is Kevin’s deep belief that if he continues to obsessively consume protein and drugs he will become the best version of himself. He secretly wishes that he could look as ripped as Jeffbro but no matter how many deadlifts he does, he continues to look as if he is #ShreddingforStereo. Kevin knows that he cares deeply about Stereo, bulking and dingaz, but he also doesn’t know much else.
Jeffbro’s Mother – The archetypal strong independent woman. Whilst her role is minor in the film, her presence is powerful. Having raised Jeffbro as a good Christian boy, she will not tolerate any disobediance or amorality.
Policeman – Imagine your worst possible nightmare embodied in a form of authority. This police officer knows how to twist the laws to severely punish those he deems too weak/stupid for society. He is more than happy to arrest those for crimes he participates himself, because he loves the power trip.
Lad – Lad loves to steal other people’s belongings and vandalise public transport for no reason whatsoever, just cause. He has 320 pairs of brand new stolen shoes and he has only worn 2 of them. His specialty is taunting little girls by stealing their toys, secretly hoping that there will be some cute toys in there because he misses the purity and innocence of his childhood.
Girl – This sweet little girl has a close relationship with her favourite cousin Jeffbro. She’s had a rough day, because a bully stole her backpack and her brand new pony!
