We’re well known for our championing of truly independent filmmakers here at STARBURST, so it’s doubly exciting to be writing about one of our own! After joining the crew in 2013, Senior Editorial Assistant Kieron Moore has produced multiple projects when not slaving over the latest issue, including the award-winning anthology short Spectrum in 2019. Following on from its festival run, Secrets of a Wallaby Boy, Moore’s feature film debut as writer/director, is a fabulously funny love letter to the tongue-in-cheek sexploitation cult comedies of ‘70s and ‘80s Britain, but with a refreshing LGBTQ twist and plenty more surprises up its saucy sleeve!

Alongside its stars Brandon McCaffrey as Tim, a newly recruited fast-food courier in over his head, and Billie Hindle as his confidante Jade, Secrets of a Wallaby Boy also boasts Doctor Who’s Colin Baker in an unforgettable voice role, horror legend Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipede 2) as the odious Argyle, and Mark Benton (Anna and the Apocalypse) as our hero’s balmy, tech-obsessed father.

Sound good? It is! Want to see it this weekend with assorted cast and crew in attendance, including actor Laurence R. Harvey himself? Read on, you’re in luck…
