In this episode I’m joined by Mutt writer and director Sam Galloway.
I first heard about Mutt in 2017 when the filmmaking team behind the film were raising funds via a crowdfunding campaign. I remember being intrigued by the film then, as I thought the world of dog fighting was quite a unique setting for an Australian film.
I can’t think of any other Australian film with dog fighting as a theme, but if you know of one, I’d love for you to get in touch and let us know about it.
Mutt follows Odette, an expecting mother who delves into a criminal underworld to rescue her dog from a torturous death.
Samuel Galloway is a kiwi filmmaker based in Melbourne. He is both a director of photography for commercial and narrative work, but also holds a distinctively dark and comedic voice as a writer-director. Samuel is known for the short films Past the Second Stage and The Dying Art of Cat Burglary, the web series Waiting on Sound, and of course Mutt.
Mutt will screen at the Capricorn Film Festival next and you can find details about that at cinemaaustralia.com.au.
No official release date for the film has been announced, but from what Sam tells us towards the end of this episode, it should be soon.
