Chloe Destiny Gileno

Your upcoming movie Badass Bunyip - what is it about, and what can you tell us about your respective characters in it?


Bennie Wragg: Badass Bunyip is a cautionary tale about being outside during Chrismas. But it could be worse, you could have to spend time with family.


Brett Campbell McLare: It's about a couple of bogans who inadvertently awaken the not so mythological Bunyip.


What did you draw upon to bring your characters to life?


BW: To create my character I drew upon my own experiences fighting Bunyips, oh and children. Well small children, the bigger girls overpower me.


BCM: I play a drug dealer who meets with his supplier in a local park. I drew upon my own past experience as a drug dealer to play this character.


As I know, you all die in Badass Bunyip in some gruesome way or other - so do talk about your respective death scenes for a bit!


Chloe Destiny Gileno: My killling scene was done with fake blood.


BW: Well I play a lazy, dim witted, sexually frustrated council worker - who is brutally beaten to death with his favorite hand, if you know what I mean.


BCM: I have my guts ripped out by the Bunyip, its a slow and agonising death.


How did you all get involved with the project in the first place? And do you actually all come from an acting background?


CDG: I'm a Melbourne-based model and actress 11 years of age, and in the past two years I completed about 22 shorts films, 2 feature films, music videos and TV ads.


BW: I actually met David through and friend and worked on a few projects with him. He offered me a role in which I get killed. So naturally I jumped on it.


BCM: Dave asked me to play a drug dealer. I haven't acted on camera before, tho I was an extra in Dogs In Space.


Bennie Wragg

To what extent were you actually familiar with the Bunyip legend before getting involved with the movie?


BW: As I hunt Bunyips I am very familiar. Just don't tell PETA I keep their skulls and skins.


BCM: I knew a little about the Bunyip mythology. As a child I would camping with my Uncle who would tell  Australian themed horror campfirestories. The Bunyip tale would be told anytime we camped near still water.


What can you tell us about Badass Bunyip's writer/producer David Black [David Black interview - click here] and director Gerardo Chierchia, and what was your collaboration with them like?


CDG: I met David Black at one audition and he is a amazing creative director I enjoyed working with him on set for Badass Bunyip.


BW: Well David is a very nice somewhat crazy man but a good friend. Of course as he is a zombie, he does bite every now and again. But to his credit he does keep bandages on him. Gerardo is a great director to work with. It's nice having a director who knows what he wants but will let you experiment with actions and dialogue. I guess being a vampire he has learnt how to handle actors over the past 300 years.


BCM: Dave and I have known each other since the 1980's, we were punks then, and now having seen Dave's work and acted in 2 of his films, I see that he has brought that punk ethos to his filmmaking. I hadn't worked with or met the director Gerardo before the shoot.


Brett Campbell McLare

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


CDG: I really enjoyed acting and meeting great talented people on set !! This short horror brings lots of fear and laughter at the same time - can’t wait to work with David Black again.


BW: On set we seemed to laugh more when someone was dying. Then after they died, we filmed the death scenes in the script and laughed more.


BCM: The atmosphere on set was very relaxed and yet spontaneous in its creative process. I really admire the work ethic of both Dave, Gerardo and the other actors.


Any future projects beyond Badass Bunyip?


BW: I should be working on such short films with Crazy Moo Productions and David. Oh and I have a performance at the end of the year with Sneakyville Theatre Company.


BCM: I'm currently running an independently short film night with Sasha Cuha at Saint Charlie Bar 386 Brunswick st Fitzroy. We feature short works by local filmmakers, any one can submit and all are welcome to attend. Our next night is on Valentine's Day. An evening of love and loving in all its twisted forms. Visit Sasha Cuha or The Fitzroy Art Collective home page for further details.
