Every screenplay has at least one element that a filmmaker knows is going to be tricky to carry off. But when the script demands you track down an elusive rare bird and find a location where an actor can safely fell a giant tree with a hand axe, you’re going to have to get extra creative. How director James Hunter, with the help of producer Faith Gouga, managed to pull all this off in their haunting short film NEST—is a fascinating tale all on its own. 

James is an award-winning Australian writer, director, editor and producer whose 16mm black and white “gothic psychodrama” NEST is one of the outstanding films in the 2023 Short Circuit Pacific Rim Film Festival.  The film is currently making the festival rounds and has screened in such prestigious Academy Award Qualifying festivals as Melbourne, St. Kilda, Atlanta, HollyShorts, FlickerFest, and SITGES film festivals.
