Full Bloom is back for a 2nd season!

So pleased that we were asked to work on this fabulous series again this year where another ten of America’s most unique and talented florists battle it out for the title of Full Bloom Champion and take home the $100 000 prize.
Series two kicks off with the Blind Bouquet challenge followed by the Team Challenge where our florists go head-to-head to create opposing pieces of a giant chess board. Using a light or dark floral colour palate, the teams create an enchanting chess set, bursting with blooms and fit for a king!
Back again this season, setting the challenges and judging their fabulous creations are esteemed floral experts Elizabeth Cronin, Maurice Harris and Simon Lycett.

ABLAZE premieres at 2021 Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF)

Melbourne opera singer Tiriki Onus sets out to uncover the mystery surrounding the life of his Indigenous grandfather William Bill Onus. As Tiriki journeys across the continent he pieces together Bill’s story. He unearths a fiery and charismatic civil rights leader, entrepreneur, theatre impresario and, probably, the first Indigenous filmmaker.
Through rare archival footage, state-of-the-art animation and eyewitness accounts, Ablaze tells a compelling and entertaining story of how Bill passionately sought to change the course of history unaware of the murky campaign to stop his rising national influence.
National cinema release planned for early 2022.

In his final film, the great Australian actor David Gulpilil faces his own mortality: he is dying of lung cancer. He talks to a future audience about what it is to stare down death, and what it was to live a life such as he did, a dizzying mix of traditional Aboriginal ways and modern Western movies. And now he looks toward going home, to his own funeral.
My Name Is Gulpilil is directed by Molly Reynolds and produced by Rolf de Heer, Peter Djigirr, David Gulpilil and Molly Reynolds.

LITTLE TORNADOES – World Premiere screening at 2021 Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF)

Introverted Leo is a metalworker at his small town’s local plant. After his wife vanishes, leaving him to care for their two young children, he is bereft – barely able to cook a decent meal or keep the household running. So when a recently-arrived Italian colleague suggests that his sister, Maria, act as surrogate homemaker, Leo reluctantly accepts. But can one woman’s warm, nurturing presence fill the void left by another, and can Leo yield to the winds of change?
The film distils the many upheavals of 1970s Australia – from immigration and post-war resettlement, to urbanisation, anti–Vietnam War protests and the women’s liberation movement – into a narrative about one man’s struggle to adapt.
LITTLE TORNADOES is a portrait of a country at a turning point and the human desire for connection.

Full Bloom – who will be the top of the bunch?

Probably the most beautiful and colourful project we have had the pleasure to work on.
Produced by Eureka Productions for HBO Max, this competition format is similar to “The Great British Baking Show”. Over 8 highly emotional episodes, 10 contestants must assemble a variety of fantastic creations from flowers, culminating in the ultimate grand prize – $100,000!
The contestants are not all established florists but people with a passion for flowers.
They are judged by international florists – Simon Lycett of London, whose A-list celebrity clients include the royal family, Elizabeth Cronin, owner and founder of the famed Asrai Garden floral shops in Chicago, and Maurice Harris of Bloom & Plume in Los Angeles.
