Your Time.

KEWL Studios has launched an exciting new streaming initiative called KEWL Originals.

Following the success of its debut documentary Now Sound: Melbourne’s Listening, and Kathleen Lee’s new six-part web series Sex and Death, the Melbourne-based film production company will release a short film, feature film or series via its YouTube channel each week.

Some of the filmmakers who will be profiled include award-winning writer and director Sam Rogers, photographer and filmmaker Phebe Schmidt, Under the Cover of Cloud filmmaker Ted Wilson, Jacob Harris, Lewis and Callum Mitchell, Becky Sui Zhen Freeman, Jake Willis, Isabella Giovinazzo and KEWL founders Tobias Willis and Zachary Bradtke.

The films to feature so far will include:

Breathe
Director 
Sam Rogers
Dave and Tim are convinced the world is coming to an end until their friend Max comes over and tells them they’re crazy.

Swim
Director Isabella Giovinazzo
She dives into uncharted sexual territory… every obstacle is sudden in the dark.

Here in Silence
Director Jake Willis
Michael meets a deaf teenage girl Isabelle randomly at a train station when they both miss their train. As they wait for the next arrival Michael and Isabelle form a special bond learning to overcome their language barriers and communicate.

Your Time
Director Phebe Schmidt
Your Time examines concepts of selfhood – seeking to make visible the gaps between image/brand and nebulous concepts of “reality” and “authenticity”. Part of this process is the conflation of subject and object, evoking a sense of ephemerality and the fragmentary disposable nature of ‘the brand’.

Three Poems
Director Jake Harris
An encapsulation of regret, longing and stubbornness projected through a surrealist carousel in space, time and spoken word.

Cross Country
Director Tobias Willis

Sex and Death
Director Kathleen Lee
Michael meets a deaf teenage girl Isabelle randomly at a train station when they both miss their train. As they wait for the next arrival Michael and Isabelle form a special bond learning to overcome their language barriers and communicate.

Family Holiday
Director Ted Wilson

Decadencia
Director The Hotel Naomi
A woman’s charcoal face mask won’t peel off. A day trip to Malibu ruins a marriage. One last show before a musician leaves town. Across three vignettes, Decadencia is an experimental comedy exploring what it is to luxuriate in the mythos of Los Angeles.
