Mad 2 the Max – short film on a budget

Hey everyone!

I thought I would quickly share the latest short film I’ve been working on called ‘Mad 2 the Max’.  It’s a short film action/comedy in genre which we shoot over three days using Mad Max replica movie vehicles.  It was a lot of fun to make and brought me back to good wholesome raw and rough guerrilla filmmaking – no budget with a lot of favours.  Take the time to watch the trailer above.  I’m keen to show you guys some movie poster tutorials very soon.



Jules is a simple girl. She doesn’t ask for much. All she really wants from life is a healthy relationship with her boyfriend Barry. To prove her love Jules buys Barry the ultimate anniversary present – a replica Mad Max Interceptor.

It was meant to be the best present ever…

Who would have thought love would drive Jules mad to the max…
