AFTER THE LOCKOUTS
The Search for Sydney’s Missing Nightlife
Shot across Sydney, Melbourne, and various cities in Europe it provides a thought provoking expose on the role of Government law making and its impact on culture and civil liberties.
The film goes looking for the truth, and leaves no stone unturned in its quest to cut through the emotion, misinformation and vested interests. This search uncovers that there is a battle going for the very soul of Sydney, a city who’s Nightlife at the time of the 2000 Olympics was the envy of every world class modern metropolis.
Now the once legendary social precincts of Kings Cross and Bohemian Oxford St’s are ghost towns at night, and the NSW Government’s installed “Nanny State” gives its citizens a curfew when they need to be in bed by. And despite the gallant efforts of Keep Sydney Open, there is no indication that a correction can be expected any time soon.
Not content to just record and observe the issues, this film proposes a brave alternative to curfews on hospitality venues. An alternative that is designed to champion the value of culture, the arts, social liberties, and defines a real set of strategies and initiatives to keep Sydney both safe and vibrant at night.

And then there are the dangerous predators who lurk unseen.
An up to the minute erotic thriller set in the age of the internet. A story of obsession, madness, and forbidden passions.

Steele begins researching a material for a new film and finds himself drawn into the world of Sugar babies and Arrangements.
At the same time a series of murders is taking place in the 5 Boroughs of NYC, 4 girls in 4 months have been murdered in a grisly fashion. Will Caroline be number 5 ? The one common link for all the dead girls is that they have all been listed as Sugar Babies seeking an “Arrangement” on the Sugar Sugar site.
